A chaotic scene inside a burning bomber captures crew members as they attempt escape. In this work Adams draws on his own experience of a crash landing: "The aircraft rolled completely over as it crashed and ground its way to a standstill. In doing so the tail turrets and vast wings and motors were torn off and took fire."
