A lone P-51 Mustang returns later than the main force after encountering Luftwaffe fighters during a bomber escort mission to Germany. After climbing out of the cockpit, the pilot briefs his loyal ground crew, who will ready the Mustang for another day of intense combat. This striking work is created in a graphite and paint combination,
The drawing has been personally signed by two famous P-51 Mustang Aces:
Colonel CLARENCE “BUD” ANDERSON – 357th Fighter Group / 16 ¼ victories
Lieutenant Colonel BOB GOEBEL – 31st Fighter Group/ 11 victories
Within the matting are the original autographs of four legendary Aces, creating a stunning six signature collector’s piece.
Brigadier General CHARLES “CHUCK” YEAGER – 357th Fighter Group / 11 ½ victories
Brigadier General ROBIN OLDS – 479th Fighter Group/ 17 victories
Colonel HERSCHEL “HERKY” GREEN – 325th Fighter Group / 18 victories
Colonel ERNEST EDWARD BANKEY Jr. – 364th Fighter Group / 9 ½ victories
Robert’s original work is hugely sought after among collectors but seldom becomes available on the open market, making this is a perfect opportunity to acquire an original piece by one of the world’s most collected aviation artists.
