Operation Argument (‘Big Week’): The beginning of the end of the German Luftwaffe

Two P-51D Mustangs at an English airfield in early 1944. The ground crew is fitting the second of two underwing fuel tanks, which allowed the Mustangs to escort American strategic bombers to their targets inside Germany, engage German fighters and return to their bases in England.
