Flak Greetings Over Bremen, Germany. Bill Washburn took this photo from the right waist gunner position in his Consolidated B-24-J Liberator heavy bomber in January 1945 over Bremen. Flak is seen bursting on the left side of the photo as bombers release their payloads. The two smoke trails on the right are from the special bombs dropped by the lead aircraft so that trailing bomb groups could toggle their bombs on the target area.
