The Mighty Hamilcar By Robin Smith

The largest wooden glider in the world, The Mighty Hamilcar, could carry seven tons of cargo which would normally be heavy armoured equipment and army personnel. One of the main dangers, apart from crash landings, was the risk the glider would tip over on landing,m resulting in the cargo falling down on top of the two man crew. Upon landing, the hydraulic oleo legs would lower down so the vehicles and personnel could disembark safely.

High Cost By Robert Taylor

A TRIBUTE TO THE MEN WHO FLEW THE LANCASTER. The crews of Bomber Command faced one of the most daunting tasks, calling for courage sustained night after night, in conditions of desperate danger and discomfort. They did not fail us and 55,573 paid the supreme sacrifice”. In his new tribute to “The Many”, Robert Taylor’s evocative painting HIGH COST recreates a typical scene encountered by many Royal Air Force bomber squadrons on raids over enemy occupied territory: Having already survived 30 successful operational sorties, on 9 February 1945 Lancaster PG-G of 619 Squadron has been intercepted by Luftwaffe night-fighters during a raid over Stettin Bay.

This is the RAF Edition signed by Five RAF airmen who flew with Bomber Command during WW2.

Defence Of The Realm By Robert Taylor

In the azure skies above London and the south-eastern Shires of England during the long, hot summer of 1940, a small band of RAF fighter pilots, substantially out-numbered, and against all odds, flew and fought a savage aerial battle in defence of the Realm. Their success in repelling the might of the Luftwaffe has become legend. They were Churchill’s FEW. Fresh from the heat of battle after a dog-fight over the city, No. 85 Squadron’s C.O., Peter Townsend, levels off and turns his Hurricane for home to re-fuel, re-arm, and rejoin the fight. A symbolic portrayal paying tribute to the Hawker Hurricane and its legendary pilots who, between them, accounted for four of every five enemy aircraft destroyed during the momentous Battle of Britain.

Those Golden Moments By Philip West

As the sun slowly begins to rise this wintry morning over Thorp Abbots, Norfolk, ground crew prepare B-17G "The All American Girl" in an almost surreal setting, for another dangerous mission over enemy territory. On January 10, 1945, with 98 successful missions behind them, 19-year-old 1st Lt. John Dodrill and his crew went missing on a combat sortie over Cologne. Like many other crews, they made the ultimate sacrifice in the fight for freedom, with the "Bloody Hundredth" Bombardment Group playing its full part with courage and honor.
