 Following a punishing mission to Germany, 9 Squadron Lancaster WS-V returns to its Lincolnshire base at RAF Bardney, Autumn 1944. After becoming separated from the main force, the crew are relieved to see the rolling fields of England below them.

9 Sqn became one of the leading units within Bomber Command, often working alongside 617 Sqn on precision raids which included the successful mission to sing the might German battleship Tirpitz.

This previously unreleased work was painted in 1984, the decade that saw artist Robert Taylor rise to international renown as the world’s most widely collected aviation artist. Now finally being released, this classic piece has been selected as the commemorative edition to mark the 100th Anniversary of the Royal Air Force on 1 April 2018.

Overall size: 23½" x 30¾"
