- A TRIBUTE TO ROBIN OLDS -
THE WORLD’S PREMIER AVIATION ARTIST COMMEMORATES ONE OF THE MOST LEGENDARY AMERICAN FIGHTER ACES IN HISTORY
Flying low over the snow covered village of Maldon in Essex, Major Robin Olds, in his P-51K Scat VI, leads a flight of Mustangs of the 434th Fighter Squadron, 479th Fighter Group back to their base at Wattisham, on 14 February 1945. During their long range escort mission Olds had added three more German fighters to his tally over Berlin, making him one of the foremost Aces in the Eighth Air Force.
Robert Taylor has painted one of the finest scenes of his illustrious career in a stunning tribute to Robin Olds, one of the legendary Aces who took part in the great aerial assault launched on Germany by the US Eighth Air Force.
Destined to become one of Robert’s classic pieces, it is of great historical significance that Robin Olds has signed part of the edition. The prints are also autographed by pilots that flew alongside him on those arduous missions, giving even greater meaning to this new release and creating a remarkable and valuable collector’s piece.
