 The famous 'Wooden Wonder' will go down in history as one of the fastest, most versatile piston-engine aircraft of the war. To remember this extraordinary warplane and in tribute to the men who flew Mosquitos, Richard Taylor has created this moving new painting.

Faithfully reproduced as a fine art limited edition print using the highest quality fade-resistant inks, this emotive tribute has been authenticated by one of the last surviving aircrew to fly the ‘Mossie’ in the skies over Europe, creating a fitting tribute to be cherished for future generations.
