The 332nd Fighter Group was the United States' very first airborne combat unit comprised of all Afro-American personnel. Commanded by Col. Benjamin O. Daves, this squadron was able to boast 111 aerial kills, 150 strafing victories, and even the sinking of a German naval vessel by the war's end. They never lost a bomber under escort to enemy air attack (a feat unmatched by any other fighter group in all of World War II). Before the 332nd Fighter Group saw combat, they were given the derogatory label 'Nightfighters'. As an artist, Robert West felt compelled to use that same term in a more positive light by depicting the Tuskegee Airmen, who are actually flying at night escorting B-1 bombers. It was even more fitting to have them flying over Berlin in 1944 as the allies were delivering the final punches to Hitler's war-machine. Lt. Col. 'Buddy' Anchers' P-51-C Mustang is in the foreground. He was America's first 'one' pilot as evidenced by the 5 swastikas adorning the flank of his aircraft. Robert Weest was an air-traffic controller in the USAF in addition to being the son of an Air Force career man. This print is dedicated to all African-American Air Force personnel in particular to the famous 332nd. Artist: Robert West
