Every plane will be shot down - every pilot will be arrested

The above work is from the year 1971. B52 trails form a delightful harlequin theme background to the poster. Two trussed up airmen, one with a head bandage, are walking at bayonet point to be new guests at the 'Hanoi Hilton'.

The use of the term 'arrested' is indicative of the North's perception of the 'criminally culpable' actions of US pilots and their flight crews. The term also maintains the message of the Northern authorities wanting to take the downed airmen alive, an important message that features in many earlier posters, as in the one below.
