A flight of P 51 Mustangs of the 339th FG, under the command of their leading Ace, Francis R. Gerard has started a series of strafing attacks on King Tigers. In the foreground a Königstiger  of the 503rd Heavy Tank Battalion is moving at full speed in an attempt to flee the P 51's and to elude the threat of P 47 Thunderbolt fighter bombers, which the Mustangs would have called in as a special anti-tank force.
Signed by four P-51 pilots of the 8th Air Force and three members of the German King Tiger tank corps:

Maj. Gen. Francis R. Gerard, Col. Rex L. Poutre, Col. Lawrence J. Powell, 1st Lt. Robert V. Blizzard, 
Col. Günter Piepgras, Lt.Col. Alfred Rubbel, Sgt. Franz-Wilhelm Lochmann.
