FLIGHT OF EAGLES
by Robert Taylor
Aircraft - Me109s
A magnificent rendition of the notorious Me109’s of JG-26 –
Adolf Galland’s Jagdgeschwader (fighter wing) – climbing out
of Abbeville on a bright morning in 1941. Leading the flight, is Galland
himself – the greatest Fighter leader of the Luftwaffe, Adolf Galland
commanded the respect of both his compatriots and those of the Allied
Air Forces who knew of his reputation – in particular his old adversary,
Douglas Bader with whom - after the war - he developed a close friendship
which lasted until Bader’s death in 1983
Always an incisive strategist and popular leader, Adolf Galland rapidly
rose through the ranks of the Luftwaffe to become the youngest General
in all the German forces at the age of only 29 years. Robert Taylor’s
painting does full justice to the menacing, yet beautiful appearance of
this remarkable man’s fighter wing.
