The winter of 1944-45 was cold, bitterly cold. Plunging temperatures brought ice, freezing fog and heavy falls of snow. Richard’s beautiful cameo painting depicts the magical scene as clearing skies reveal a morning landscape bathed in white. A fresh fall of snow overnight has brought an unusual stillness to the English countryside, broken only by the roar of Merlin engines as Robin Olds and pilots from the 434th Fighter Squadron, 479th Fighter Group manage to get airborne from a hastily cleared runway to check out their Mustangs. Their presence is a reminder that despite the weather the bitter struggle continues in war-torn mainland Europe and should a mission soon be possible, they’ll be ready.

Sure to be popular, especially given the limited quantities printed, every copy bears the original autographs of top P-51 Mustang fighter pilots who represent the very best of the courageous men who flew and fought with the 8th Air Force in the skies over Europe. These include the famous Ace depicted, Robin Olds, creating a historic collectors piece to be treasured.

The Limited Edition Along with artist Richard Taylor, every print carries the original signatures of three famous P-51 Mustang Aces who flew in combat during WWII:

Brig Gen ROBIN OLDS - 479th FG - 17 air & 11 ground victories (pictured)
Brig Gen FRANK GAILER - 357th FG - 5 ½ air & 1 ground victories
