Only on display through April 30, 2017, Bomber Boys explores a collection of fascinating photographs and ephemera that commemorate the service and sacrifice of the 12th Air Force during World War II. Several members of the 12th Air Force were even trained and stationed at Lowry Air Force Base, the location where Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum now sits.
Stationed first in North Africa, then southern Italy, and later on Corsica, the 12th Army Air Corps leap-frogged north during 1942-1945, pushing the Axis armies up the Italian boot. The 321st bomb group pummeled the Brenner Pass rail line that ran through the mountains between Italy and Austria. The goal was to shut down supply lines and communications; to force the Axis troops out of occupied territory.
