 Product Description

Skipper Comes Home by Robert Taylor
Overall Print Size: 30 1/8" x 24 5/8"
Edition size of 500
S/N by Artist and Four (4) Pilots

Aircraft Type: B-17 Flying Fortress

 

"Skipper", one of the longest serving B-17 Flying Fortresses of the war, is returning to Thurleigh on a cold afternoon in late January 1945. Flying with the 367th Squadron of the 306th Bomb Group, "Skipper" was badly damaged in November 1944, repaired and returned to service to finish the war with over 100 combat missions flown. Depicted here, the bare metal replacement section in the tail, and several flak patches have yet to be repainted by her busy ground crew.

With the aid of Robert Taylor's sensitive representation, it is not difficult to imagine the thoughts and feelings of the returning aircrew as they see the runway at Thurleigh stretched out before them, welcoming them home as they make their final approach.

Every print in this brand new commemorative edition has been signed in pencil by FOUR pilots who flew B17 Fortresses with the Eighth Air Force in combat during World War II.

Signatures:

  • Major PAUL H. GREER
  • Lieutenant Colonel WILLIAM P. KINCHELOE
  • First Lieutenant DON NIELSEN
  • Captain ROBERT PARIS
