RED TAIL PATROL
This superb pencil print from Richard Taylor depicts red-tailed P-51 Mustangs of the Tuskegee Airmen, high over enemy territory, returning from yet another successful bomber escort mission
The Tuskegee “Red Tail” pilots of the 332nd Fighter Group escorted hundreds of bomber aircrew back to safety and Richard’s drawing is a lasting tribute to one of the most famous units of WWII.
300 prints in this exclusive signed edition are issued worldwide, consisting of two different signature versions:
The Limited Edition
(print numbers 1-200)
Joining artist Richard Taylor, each of the first 200 prints in the edition is personally endorsed by an original Tuskegee Fighter Pilot:
- Second Lieutenant Lowell Steward
The Red Tail Edition
(print numbers 201 - 300)
The prints in this edition have also been signed by a further four original Tuskegee Fighter pilots, creating a FIVE signature edition:
- Lieutenant Colonel William Wheeler
- Lieutenant Colonel Charles Lane
- Staff Sergeant James Sheppard
- Captain Howard Baugh
Richard Taylor is widely recognised as one of the best exponents of pencil work in the aviation art industry and a very limited number of prints were issued with an individually hand drawn single or DOUBLE sized original pencil remarque, direct from Richard’s studio. Each exquisite remarque is completed as an individual pencil drawing and numbered to match the main print. Both are then issued within full conservation matting to include a pair of museum quality reproduction US Air Force Pilots Wings, creating a highly desirable tribute to the FIGHTING RED TAILS!
