All smiles as Capt. Lowell Smith thanks a U.S. Army antiaircraft crew for their help. Smith had been attacked by a Bf 109 while returning from a mission. With no ammunition left, he flew low over this gun position, and the crew shot the enemy fighter down. According to the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force this took place during the Battle of the Bulge (U.S. Air Force photo)
