Mighty Eighth Aviation Art Prints by Robert Taylor and Ivan Berryman. - RobertTaylorAviationPrints.com

DHM6092. Jet Hunters by Robert Taylor. <p>On 10th April 1945, thirteen hundred bombers of the Mighty Eighth set out to destroy the last of the Luftwaffe's jet force.  But, unknown to the bomber crews and their fighter escort, the enemy jets were already airborne and waiting to spring their deadly trap.  As the war in mainland Europe entered its final, bloody phase, the German Armies defending Berlin fought on with a savage determination, slowly disintegrating before the mighty weapon of war unleashed against them.  What remained of the Luftwaffe was mercilessly pounded from the air, their airfields hammered relentlessly.  Aircraft, fuel, spare parts, ammunition and pilots all in short supply but still they fought on, with deadly effect.  At the forefront of the German offensive and pivotal during the defence of the Reich, were the highly advanced jet fighters of the Luftwaffe, and in particular the legendary Me262.  B17s of the First Air Division with streaming contrails in the cold clear air as they turn for home.  Several Me262s have already torn through the massed formation, but a P-51 from the escorting 356th Fighter Group has quickly spotted his target and presses home his attack.  The hunter becomes the hunted as the Mustang pilot, Wayne Gatlin, skillfully positions himself behind the Me262 ready for the kill.  Throughout the final stages of the war there were many examples of the determination and skill of Allied pilots flying slower piston-engined fighters triumphing over the cream of the Luftwaffe in their highly advanced but often temperamental jet fighters. <b><p>Signed by Major General Wayne C Gatlin,<br> Sqn Ldr Jurek Mencel DFC, KM*** AFM***<br>and<br> Flt Lt Joseph Peterburs. <p>Signed limited edition of 400 prints.  <p> Paper size 35 inches x 25 inches (89cm x 64cm)  Image size 28.5 inches x 17 inches (73cm x 43cm)
