Skipper - Home at Last by Robert Taylor
There is a brief moment of calm as B-17 ‘Skipper’ of the 367th Squadron, 306th Bomb Group returns to base at Thurleigh in East Anglia after another grueling daytime mission over occupied Europe, January 1945. One of the longest-serving Flying Fortresses of the war, ‘Skipper’ completed over 100 combat missions despite suffering from battle damage in late 1944.
Robert’s superb graphite edition acts as a lasting tribute to the brave aircrew of the USAAF who flew the mighty B-17 in combat during WWII.
Personally autographed by four prominent veterans who flew Flying Fortresses in combat over Europe including KEMP MCLAUGHLIN who was the lead pilot on the second Schweinfurt mission and ROBERT SHOENS who took part in the first USAAF daylight bombing raid to Berlin:

Out of the Night - First to Go In By Robert Taylor
Silently out of the night they came. With flaps deployed, three timber and plywood Horsa gliders swept swiftly down through the night skies, rapidly closing with their objective – Pegasus Bridge over the Caen Canal. On board, with tension etched deep into their blackened faces, men from the Oxfordshire & Buckinghamshire Light Infantry, part of the British 6th Airborne Division, braced themselves for landing. They, and sappers from the Royal Engineers, were about to become the first fighting force to land in France on D-Day. They were about to make history. This new graphite collectors edition is personally signed by veterans who fought in the epic encounter at Pegasus Bridge, assaulted the beaches and one of the six Halifax pilots who towed the gliders into action on that momentous night.
