Group Captain Sir DOUGLAS BADER

Only 26 copies of this memorable edition are available worldwide. Each pair of drawings is exquisitely matted to full conservation standards in a single composition that includes museum-quality reproduction RAF wings plus a RARE and fully authenticated original autograph of the man himself; Group Captain Sir DOUGLAS BADER CBE DSO* DFC* DL FRAeS.

SAFE RETURN

In recognition of the Wellington’s place in aviation history artist Anthony Saunders has chosen to depict an aircraft from 99 Squadron, the first squadron to be equipped with the type, as the subject of his detailed painting aptly named Safe Return. It portrays a scene that occurred at dawn on 29 February 1940 when one of the squadron’s bombers with Pilot Officer Reginald Williams at the controls lost power to its port engine whilst heading out over the North Sea. Aborting his mission and low on power, Williams struggles to gain height in order to clear approaching cliffs. Thankfully he succeeded, managing to coax his damaged bomber back to base.
 

 

CHANNEL SWEEP

Robert Taylor’s stunning painting Channel Sweep depicts a scene in August 1941 with a section of Mk.Vb Spitfires from 452 Squadron, led by top Irish Ace Flight Lieutenant Brendan ‘Paddy’ Finucane DFC, as they head out over the Kent coast on an offensive patrol across the English Channel. With all the hallmarks of a classic Taylor masterpiece, this stunning edition also carries the original signature of one of the RAF’s most successful and high-scoring Aces, who flew Spitfires with the Biggin Hill Wing during this period.

Sir BARNES WALLIS

In recognition of Barnes Wallis’ remarkable contribution to the raids against the great dams, only 19 copies of this memorable edition are available worldwide representing the 19 aircraft that took off from RAF Scampton on that fateful night. Each pair of drawings is exquisitely matted to full conservation standards in a single composition that includes a RARE and fully authenticated original autograph of the man himself; Sir BARNES WALLIS CBE FRS RDI FRAeS.
 

 

THE EAGLES RETURN

In his memorable piece The Eagles Return, Richard Taylor uses spell-binding artistry to convey a heart-warming scene in tribute to those tough, determined and supremely brave aviators. It seems fitting that he’s chosen to depict Ace pilot ‘Bud’ Anderson in his P-51 ‘Old Crow’ in company with colleagues from the 363rd Fighter Squadron as they head back to Leiston after a gruelling escort mission over occupied Europe for the 357th Fighter Group – one of the most successful fighter units in the Eighth Air Force.

HEADING OFF OMAHA

Keith’s ability to capture the power and drama of a scene never fails to win the imagination and this dramatic piece is no exception. The artist’s award-winning talent takes us to the sandy bluffs overlooking Omaha Beach shortly after D-Day. The foreshore that only days before had witnessed chaos and bloody carnage, is now abuzz with action as American armored forces disembark from their beached Tank Landing Ships and head inland to support colleagues heavily engaged in bitter fighting to dislodge German units in northern Normandy.
 

 

CO-OPERATION

To win the Guild of Aviation Artists’ prestigious “Aviation Painting of the Year” is no easy task. The award, sponsored by BAE Systems plc – one of the largest defence and aerospace companies in the world – involves the very best aviation paintings submitted to the Guild’s Annual Exhibition, judged by an independent panel of experts. Winning the award is a monumental task, but in 2016 that is exactly what Keith did with this masterpiece, CO-OPERATION.

STALAG LUFT III – THE GREAT ESCAPE

Reproduced on stunning archival paper as a Giclée edition and limited to just 76 copies worldwide, each is dedicated to one of the 76 prisoners who made it out of the camp that night. Every copy is individually printed with a specific number and issued mounted to include a small sample of sand recovered from the tunnel site together with an imprint taken from one of the original counterfeit Wehrmacht Eagle stamps engraved by a prisoner and used in the forging of travel documents.
 

 

READY FOR ANYTHING
