Background: When "Operation Steinbock" was launched, KG 2 was heavily involved in bombing raids towards the British islands between January and April 1944. Hermann Stemann and his crew took part in a raid to London in the night 23./24.02.1944. This plane carried one AB 1000 and two AB 500 bombs and was flying through heavy Flak over London when Stemann thought their plane was hit, all crew bailed out in the Wembley area to become POW's. But in reality U5+DK took no big hits and flew on some 60 miles to come down near Cambridge nearly intact in a smooth wheels up landing!

Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress
Cod. PS-72339 Disponibile
1/72 Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress 1. The crew of Veni Vidi Vici and the aircraft arrived in England in September of 1943. They flew out of Knettishall, England in the 562 Bomb Squadron of the 388th Bomb Group. The Navigator, Rolla Garretson, submitted the name of their plane, Veni Vidi Vici (I Came, I Saw, I Conquered) as fitting for their mission over Nazi Germany. The term Veni Vedi Vici was coined by Julius Caesar in 47 BC in a letter to the Roman senate describing his re-cent victory over Pharnaces II of Pontus in the Battle of Zela. The pilot, First Lieutenant Herbert W. Moore, of Edgewood, PA and the rest of the crew completed their 25 missions on 20 Feb 44. 20 of those missions were flown on Veni Vedi Vici. None of the crew of Veni Vidi Vici were killed, wounded, or became POW’s, and they all successfully completed their 25 missions. They were very fortunate since only 25% of 8th Air Force bomber crews completed their 25 missions. The crew of Veni Vidi Vici truly did live out their aircrafts name – they came, they saw and they conquered!
