Lancasters of No. 83 Squadron Pathfinder Force as they climb out over the east coast of England enroute to Peenemunde on the warm summer evening of 17 August, 1943. Brilliantly navigated in darkness right over the target, the masterbomber’s aircraft, seen in the forefront of Robert Taylor's painting, made nine dangerous passes over the target, directing operations. During the next 55 minutes Hitler’s secret weapon establishment was almost totally destroyed by the bomber crews that followed his directions.
Commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the mighty Lancaster bomber, its vital role in World War II, and the gallant crews that flew them. Each print is signed by FIVE famous men of RAF Bomber Command, together with artist Robert Taylor.Signatures:Flight Lieutenant BILL REID
