Two of the RAF’s most famous Fighter Aces, Douglas Bader and the top scoring Allied Ace, ‘Johnnie’ Johnson, fly their Spitfires high above the clouds over the Southern English coast.
Painted in 1979, this very early print was one of the only editions that Bader and Johnson signed together, and sold out extremely quickly. It is rare that we get a mint condition copy on the secondary market.
This print was signed by the artist as well as the two iconic Aces depicted in the scene:
Group Captain Sir DOUGLAS BADER CBE DSO* DFC* – 24 victories
Air Vice Marshal ‘JOHNNIE’ JOHNSON CB CBE DSO** DFC* – 38 victories
