MARGARET BOURKE WHITE             Life's Bourke-White Goes Bombing - LIFE 1943                 

OUT OF STOCK

Margaret Bourke White became the first woman ever to fly on a USAAF combat mission when she joined the crew of 'Little Bill', a B17 piloted by Major Paul Tibbetts ( Enola Gay) of 97th Bomb Group. They bombed the airfield at El Aouina, Tunis on the 22nd January 1943.
MBW described an incident on the mission;

"In the air quite close to us were black spreading spiders, rather pretty, with legs that grew and grew. I couldn't imagine what they were, but again I dutifully photographed them...Suddenly I realised. This is ack-ack! They are shooting at us."

MBW had documented the 97th in England prior to their move to North Africa. Back in England she had been given the honour of the naming of a B17, 'The Flying Flitgun'. This plane flew on the same mission.

The cover has some foxing and some repairs have been made to the spine, internally.
