    Threatening Skies recreates an encounter on 19 February 1945. As dawn breaks over the Pacific, a determined force of Japanese Ki-44's launch a surprise attack on a large formation of USAAF B-29 Superfortresses as they approach the Japanese mainland. B-29 gunners let rip as one fighter flashes past, with a second fighter closing at high speed. Chunks of the B-29's port wing and aileron have been taken out in the initial attack, and with another Japanese fighter fast on its tail, the outcome of this particular encounter hangs in the balance.

    Signed on back by these veterans of the Pacific War who flew B-29s in the assault on mainland Japan:

  • Lieutenant Colonel RALPH NUTTER
  • Colonel JAMES PATTILLO
  • Captain BEN ROBERTSON
