England 1944…Thousands of young American lads found themselves far from home, family, and everything familiar, in the greatest military conflict in history. During the height of their youth, those in the “Mighty Eighth” Air Force and other Heavy Bombardment units would put it all on the line daily in the skies over war-torn Europe, aboard one of the most sophisticated pieces of aerial machinery of its time, Boeing’s legendary “Flying Fortress”.
Shown in this scene are B-17s of the 379th Bomb Group, based at Kimbolton, England. Carol Dawn was considered a “lucky ship”, being one of the few which would carry many crews home in well over 100 missions, and ultimately return to the US at war’s end.
Each paper giclée is printed on acid-free archival satin paper and signed and numbered by the artist.
Each canvas giclée is hand oil-accented & revarnished, and signed & numbered by the artist.
Signature (on Artist's Proof only):
