Flying out of Wels in Austria, II/ZG 1, the Wasp Wing as it was known, was a veteran Luftwaffe unit of the Eastern front and the only surviving unit operational on the Me110. When in June 1944 Wasps participated in the attack against U.S. bombers headed for the city of Budapest, it was the last time the Me110 was flown into battle in daylight. Here P-47's of the famous Checkertails on escort duty, suddenly and ferociously attack two Me 11O's of the Wasps. Each print has been signed personally by the last three surviving Knight's Cross recipients of II/ZG 1, and countersigned by three of the most highly decorated combat veterans of the
United States Army Air Force 325th Fighter Group.
