On September 2, 1943, 16 B-25 Mitchells of the 405th Bomb Squadron departed Port Moresby's Durand Air Strip to bomb and strafe a convoy of Japanese transports in Wewak Harbor, New Guinea. P-38s joined in top cover, but the enemy fielded barrage balloons cabled to ships, antiaircraft fire laid up in curtains of fire and resolute pilots of Ki-61 Tony and Ki-43 Oscar fighters prepared to ram if their air-to-air gunnery failed. In the foreground is TOKYO SLEEPER, the most famous of the 405th Bomb Squadron, 38th Bomb Group. The veteran strafer is shown performing to perfection the role that Pappy Gunn intended. This artwork is published on the cover of our book Saga of the Sun Setters Volume II.
