Pack 672. Pack of two Hawker Typhoon prints by Robert Taylor and Robin Smith. - Airforce-Art.com

DHM2711AP. Closing the Gap by Robert Taylor. <p> As Typhoon Mk1b fighter-bombers of 247 Squadron exit the target area near Falaise at full throttle, the havoc wreaked in their wake bears witness to the devastation of their powerful rockets. Fuel and ammunition from the retreating German column explode with shattering detonations, the savagery of the attack demoralising the enemy into stunned oblivion. The Typhoons will hurtle back to base to re-arm and hastily re-fuel, ready for yet another withering strike on the encircled Wehrmacht columns. This stunning rendition from the the worlds premier aviation artist pays tribute to the brave young RAF fighter pilots of the twenty squadrons of rocket-firing Hawker Typhoons who flew those perilous ground attacks during the Battle of Normandy. <b><p> Signed by Squadron Leader Percival H. Beake DFC, <br>Warrant Officer Jack Hodges DFC, <br>Warrant Officer John Abe Lincoln, <br>Flight Lieutenant Sir John Atkinson KCB DFC, <br>Flying Officer Kenneth Junior Kneen, <br>Air Commodore C D Kit North Lewis DSO DFC (deceased), <br>Warrant Officer Douglas Oram, <br>Squadron Leader Basil Stapleton DFC (deceased), <br>Flying Officer Frank Wheeler DFC (deceased) <br>and <br>Pilot Officer Rusty Townsend. <p> Typhoon edition of 25 artist proofs. <p> Paper size 35 inches x 25 inches (89cm x 64cm) Image size 28.5 inches x 17 inches (72cm x 43cm)
