  • December 27, 1944 . . . At dawn, P-47s of the 406th Fighter Group blast over Bastogne. Their engines roar a salute to the 101st Airborne paratroopers below. Eleven days prior, the flyboys and Screaming Eagles formed a friendship at their base in Mourmelon, France.

    Then, the Battle of the Bulge erupted and the 101st raced to defend Bastogne. When the 406th pilots were given their mission—to defend Bastogne from the air—they knew who they were flying for. Now, as the 3rd Army streams in having broken the German siege, the exhausted paratroopers know victory is at hand.
