"Scorpio" by Phil Brinkman

The 834th BS had the distinction of having a thematic group of bombers depicting the 12 signs of the zodiac. Eventually, only 11 planes would have their artwork completed. Thus, the squad became known as the Zodiacs. The group was further distinguished by its war record, flying its first 77 missions without a loss. This set an 8th AF record. LT Shaw and crew have the distinction of being the first crew from the 834th to lose a plane. They made an emergency landing near the Belgian town of Wetteren in August of 1944.
