DUEL OF EAGLES
Released in 1980 this was one of the earliest collaborations between RAF and Luftwaffe Aces and has become one of the most popular and sought after prints in the industry.
Originally released as a restricted edition of 1500 prints, what makes this outstanding piece even more rare and desirable is that the signatures are in ink rather than pencil, meaning unless a copy is framed with UV filter glass or has been kept in the dark for 30 years it will fade over time and be lost forever. Very seldom do we get the opportunity these days to acquire a mint condition example.
The image depicts RAF legend Douglas Bader and the great Luftwaffe fighter Leader, Adolf Galland duelling in the skies over Northern France in 1941 and is personally autographed by these two iconic pilots:
- Generalleutnant Adolf Galland KC with Oak Leaves Swords and Diamonds
- Group Captain Sir Douglas Bader CBE DSO* DFC*
- 24 x 20 inches
