Second Lieutenant A.K. Jorgensen, First Lieutenant Richard Ulvestad and Second Lieutenant Gordon Hatt talk with a fellow airman of the 387th Bomb Group in front of their B-26 Marauder. Image stamped on reverse: 'Keystone Press.' [stamp], 'Passed for publication 14 Oct 1943.'[stamp] and '288177.' [Censor no.] Printed caption on reverse: '"MARAUDER" GETS HOME WITH ONE ENGINE AFLAME. "Double Trouble" is the name of a B-26 at a US Marauder station. On a recent raid over France it lived up to its name with a vengeance. All but knocked out of the sky by attacking enemy fighters and flak, it came back on one engine, with the other spurting flame, a situation perilous enough to give the most hardened pilot nightmares.

Gordon Hatt, Patten, Maine, co-pilot, talking to a soldier who does their bombing up. US Pool/SG/H Keystone.'
