With their distinctive red tails, P-51 Mustangs of the 332nd Fighter Group - the famed Tuskegee Airmen, climb to operational height as B-17 Flying Fortresses from the 483rd Bomb Group maneuver into formation at the start of another long and dangerous mission over Germany, Oct 1944. A welcome sight for the Fortress crews, the renowned all-African-American Tuskegee pilots were credited for never losing an escorted bomber to enemy aircraft.
For the first time ever Robert pays tribute to the Tuskegee Airmen in this stunning portrait of one of the most famous fighter units of WWII.
Along with artist Robert Taylor each print is also personally signed by four Tuskegee Fighter Pilots that flew with the 332nd Fighter Group during WWII and crew member of the 483rd Bomb Group, who was regularly escorted by the unit.
