Description

Returning to base following the ordeal of a grueling daylight raid, enduring barrages of flak and attacks from marauding enemy fighters, was a moment of exhilaration and relief for the weary aircrews, and Robert Taylor has perfectly captured this hectic, exciting wartime scene.

The 34th Bomb Group’s Queenie, first home to Mendlesham today, has come to a standstill, the co-pilot already briefing the crew chief on the state of the aircraft.  Other B-17s are already parked as the last man home makes his final approach, streaming vapor from a badly overheating engine.  It is April 1945. The fickle English weather greets the returning airmen with a mixture of brilliant Spring sunshine and passing April showers.  The picture is exhilarating.

THE SIGNATURES

In addition to the artist, every print in this magnificent edition is signed by two distinguished B-17 skippers:

Captain ROLLAND H. WHITED
Lieutenant Colonel ROBERT W DEES

This evocative print was originally issued with Robert’s Masterworks Collection book for, a limited period.  The book is no longer available, but happily we can still offer collectors this atmospheric piece as a stunning limited edition print.
