Normandy Sunrise by Gerald Coulson (C)


Normandy Sunrise by Gerald Coulson (C)

Here, in the brightening morning sky, Typhoons are prepared for the first sortie of the day. One has already fired up its big, powerful engine, blowing up whirlwinds of Normandy dust, ground crew hover, ready to remove chocks prior to taxi and take-off. A second is readied, while the remainder of the squadron, widely dispersed around the temporary field, are about to set about their deadly missions of the day.
AMAZING VALUE! - The value of the signatures on this item is in excess of the price of the print itself!
