2008 96th BOMB GROUP REUNION POSTER
991 - 2008 96th BOMB GROUP REUNION POSTER
2008 96th BOMB GROUP REUNION
This commemorative illustration was created as a lasting tribute to the fine airmen of WWII's 96th Bomb Group of the "Mighty Eighth" Air Force as they joined up once again at the 32st reunion held in Savannah GA, August 3-8 2008.
After three months in development, Joe Jones worked closely with Britain's 96th BG museum curator, Geoff Ward and several crewmen of the 96th Bomb Group. Inspired by the true story of B-17 waist gunner, George Meshko and the crew of "Sky Ball" of their return to base from their final 25th mission, Jones proudly dedicated this years official 96th BG poster art to these fine airmen at their gala function.
