Bombers flying over San Giorgio di Nogaro



Bombers flying over San Giorgio di Nogaro


Bombers fly over a town. In the scene, every window is lit up. Civilians are running for shelter. A woman reaches out for her child. One man remains stationary and seems confused. The five aircraft are being targeted by anti-aircraft fire.

Label reads “207”; signed by the author; caption reads “Caption reads “3 GENNAIO 1945. Bimotori alleati, provenienti dalla marina in formazione libera, sorvolano S. Giorgio di Nogaro UD nelle ore serali sotto il tiro dei proiettili traccianti delle batterie tedesche della Baiana.”

Caption translates as: “4 January 1945. Allied twin-engines aircraft coming from the sea in an open formation, fly over San Giorgio di Nogaro (Udine province) late at night. They are targeted by tracer shot by German batteries at Baiana.”
