A Royal Air Force Baltimore light bomber drops a series of bombs during an attack on the railway station and junction at the snow-covered town of Sulmona, a strategic point on the east-west route across Italy, in February of 1944.”


  1. Lucky there were no Fokke Wolves around...

    1. I've never even heard of a Baltimore light bomber, but it sure looks vulnerable. A dangerous mission to drop one little measly bomb.

    2. I hadn't either, but wikipedia said it was fairly effective and had a low combat loss rate once they started using effective tactics. It also said, and from the picture I believe it, that the crew could not change positions after takeoff due to fuselage width.
