WWII Bombers


The strategic bombing campaign during WWII cost the lives of roughly 160,000 Allied airmen and 33,700 planes in the European theater alone.

We have collected incredible images of the last moments of World War II bombers. Wherever possible we have added information to the images about the crew’s fate.

15. B-17 “Mizpah”

Mizpah Mizpah

B-17G Fortress “Mizpah” took a direct AAA hit in the nose on a mission to Budapest, 14 Jul 1944.

Two crewmembers were killed instantly, but the pilot held her level long enough for the crew to get out and they were taken prisoner of war.

The aircraft crashed near Dunavecse, Hungary
