In a moving 50th Anniversary tribute to the 1700 intrepid aircrew who flew the epic Ploesti Raid, the world’s foremost aviation artist, Robert Taylor, has created a masterpiece in air combat art. As Suzy Q emerges from the maelstrom, with 44th Bomb Group Commander Leon Johnson clearly visible in the co-pilot’s seat, the gripping spectacle of that historic raid is brought to life with vivid, awesome realty.
This award winning print sold out immediately and has been a very rare and highly desired piece on the secondary market ever since.
Each print is signed by FIVE distinguished B-24 pilots, each representing one of the five USAAF Bomb Groups who flew on the Ploesti mission.
