- The Banff Strike Wing -

Mosquitos from RAF Coastal Command’s Banff Strike Wing race through a deep-sided Norwegian fjord following a successful rocket strike against enemy coastal shipping.
 
Overall Print Size: Approx 27½” wide x 19” high

“It makes me furious when I see the Mosquito. I turn green and yellow with envy. The British, who can afford aluminium better than we can, knock together a beautiful wooden aircraft that every piano factory over there is building, and they give it a speed which they have now increased yet again. What do you make of that? … They have the geniuses and we have the nincompoops...."
 
Reichsmarschal Hermann Goering
 
The de Havilland Mosquito was arguably the finest multi-role combat aircraft of World War II and, remarkably, one of the few front-line aircraft constructed almost entirely of wood - few other warbirds were built for so many different duties.

Amongst its countless roles it formed the core of Coastal Command’s legendary anti-shipping strike force, and it is this role that is the subject of Robert Taylor's thrilling new painting, paying tribute to the Mosquito crews of World War II.
 
A large force of Mosquitos from RAF Coastal Command’s Banff Strike Wing exit a deep-sided fjord along Norway’s rugged, heavily defended mountainous coast.

In the distance, smoke and explosions reverberate from their successful rocket strike against enemy coastal shipping, destroying yet another cargo of iron ore destined for the furnaces of Germany’s industrial war machine. Above them P-51 Mustangs provide top cover support should any patrolling enemy fighters decide to make an appearance.

The Collectors Edition: 175 signed & numbered prints
       
The signatures
Fresh from the studio of the world’s master aviation artist, each print in Robert Taylor’s compelling new edition has been signed by some of the most respected Mosquito aircrew of World War II to make this wonderful collectors’ item a timely piece to be treasured for the generations that follow.

Every print has been signed in pencil by TEN highly distinguished Mosquito aircrew, together with the artist Robert Taylor. Each print is individually hand-numbered.
