In Richard Taylor's striking new painting, the Tuskegee "Red Tail" pilots of the 332nd Fighter Group are a more than welcome sight as they close in to escort home a damaged B17 Fortress of the 483rd Bomb Group. Seen high over the Italian Alps during the summer of 1944 this poignant scene conveys precisely the story of the legendary "Red Tails", and with every print in Richardís new edition signed by six surviving pilots from this remarkable group of airmen, collectors will surely want to add this spectacular print to their aviation art portfolios.

"Your sole mission is to protect the bombers Ė not chase enemy aircraft for personal glory" - Colonel Benjamin O. Davis Jr. Group Commander 332nd Fighter Group
