Fortress at Rest by Richard Taylor aviation art autographed by B-17 veterans:


By Richard Taylor

Temporarily grounded by deep overnight snow, a B-17G Flying Fortressfrom the 398th Bomb Group stands quietly near the constantly patrolled perimeterof RAF Nuthampstead during the winter of 1944.

The bomber crews of the US Eighth Air Force rightfullyearned their place in aviation history through heroism and devotion to duty,becoming one of the most highly decorated organizations of WWII with 17 Medalof Honor recipients and 66 Distinguished Unit Citation awards. But, with almost6,000 heavy bombers lost, the cost of victory had come at an enormous price –only one in three airmen had survived the air battle over Europe.

The print is individually numbered and personally signed by the artist alongwith three veterans who flew B-17s with the Eighth Air Force in WWII.

1st Lt KEN SHARPE - Pilot with the with 388th Bomb Group
1st Lt CHARLES ‘NORM’ STEVENS - Bombardier with the 351st Bomb Group
1st Lt JAMES L. WHITE Jr - Pilot with the 398th Bomb Group

This evocative printprovides collectors with a fitting tribute to the valiant bomber crews of the ‘Mighty Eighth'
