Wing And A Prayer by Len Krenzler

The mission shown here was flown Robert Kit Cardwell in his B17 against an aircraft component plant in Frankfurt. Shortly after dropping its load, Robert’s aircraft “Little Lovely” was hit by a heavy flak burst which destroyed control cables, caused the engines to over-run and left over 250 holes in the aircraft, about 50 of which were the size of a fist. This was Little Lovely’s 95th and final mission but Kit and his crew were glad to be alive! Modeled in MoI3D (Moment of Inspiration), rendered in Lightwave.

    A superb work of art and a fascinating story of courage and determination in the face of adversity. A marvellous tribute to all those aircrew who flew such perilous missions!

    Excellent work. Really captures the spirit of the event and has a painterly quality. The flight report was also interesting to read up on as well.
