Returning Fire

by William S. Phillips

The Sikorsky UH-60 Black Hawk is a twin-turbine engine, single rotor, semi-monocoque fuselage, rotary wing helicopter. The medium-lift utility or assault helicopter was the winner of a United States Army competition in the late 1970s to replace the Huey (UH-1) family. Although the two final competing designs were both developed to Army specifications, the UH-60 was selected over an entry from Boeing-Vertol. It would go on to serve as the basis for variants in service with other branches of the US military. The Black Hawk can perform a wide array of missions, including the tactical transport of troops, electronic warfare and aero medical evacuation. In air assault operations it can move a squad of 11 combat troops with equipment, with advanced avionics and electronics provide increased survivability and capability.

In William S. Phillips' Returning Fire, the Black Hawk crew assigned to the 101st Airborne takes evasive action and releases flares and machine gun fire after being fired upon during a sortie late in the day over Iraq.

Evasive Action Over Sagami Bay

by William S. Phillips

Shortly after bombing the Tokyo Gas and Electric Company, Pilot Lt. Harold F.Watson banks the
B-25 Whirling Dervish steeply to avoid a Japanese cruiser that lay directly on the aircraft’s escape
route to China. It was the ninth of sixteen aircraft to leave the carrier USS Hornet on the audacious
April 18, 1942 Doolittle Raid on Japan. That United States Army Air Forces bombers could launch
from a U.S. Navy aircraft carrier was inconceivable at the time. President Roosevelt claimed the aircraft
came from a secret airbase in the mythical Shangri-La. American bombers striking the Japanese
homeland and passing within sight of Mount Fuji, the most sacred mountain in all Japan, delivered
a succinct message to the warring Axis nation: America, the Sleeping Giant, had begun to stir.

Evasive Action Over Sagami Bay is an authentic historical document, offered as both a fine art print
and canvas edition, countered-signed by American heroes that participated in the Doolittle Raid.This is
a unique opportunity to own and preserve an important moment in aviation and U.S. military history.
