WINGS OF GLORY

by Robert Taylor

Robert Taylor Wings of Glory, Spitfire


Aircraft –Spitfire

Like her great adversary, the Messerschmitt Bf109, the Supermarine Spitfire gained legendary status, both fighters becoming timeless symbols of the opposing nations that contested the skies of Europe during World War II. Being directly descended from Mitchell’s pre war, all conquering ‘Supermarine’ racing seaplanes, the little all-metal fighter arrived in the RAF squadrons in 1939.
Robert Taylor’s spellbinding painting pays tribute to Mitchell’s immortal fighter, featuring the Mk XIX Spitfire of the RAF’s Battle of Britain Memorial Flight. Powered by the Rolls-Royce Griffin engine providing maximum speed of 450 mph and an operating ceiling of 44,000 ft. this lovingly restored aircraft thrills generations of aviation enthusiasts with her spectacular aerobatics at Europe’s summer air shows.

Signed by the artist Robert Taylor and four distinguished World War II Spitfire pilots: Squadron Leader Neville Duke DSO OBE DFC* AFC CzMC, Wing Commander John Freeborn DFC*, Chief Test Pilot Alex Henshaw, Squadron Leader Basil Stapleton DFC.
