AIR SUPERIORITY by Robert Taylor
This is the first release in a pair of prints (see American Eagles) paying tribute the USAAF in Europe 1942 - 1945.
It had taken almost six years of continual air fighting for Allied air
forces to attain complete and total air superiority over the Luftwaffe.
At the outbreak of World War II the mighty German Air Force had appeared
invincible but the ensuing Battle of Britain gave the Luftwaffe its first
taste of what was to come.
Robert Taylor’s superb new painting catches the mood prevailing
in the squadrons in April 1945, as P-51 Mustangs of the 357th Fighter
Group sweep unopposed through the beautiful Rhine valley south of Köln.
With the war virtually over and their combat days almost complete, these
pilots will soon be on their way home.
Once again Robert Taylor has produced a classic painting reminiscent of some of his most collectable releases. The edition is personally signed by up to TWELVE Fighter Aces and pilots all of whom flew in Europe with the 357th Fighter Group.
Overall Print Size: 353/4” wide x 235/8” high
Early on in the release matching numbers to American Eagles will be available and together they form an outstanding collection of signatures from this famous unit.
