COAST IN SIGHT
by Robert Taylor
With one engine out and serious damage to the starboard wing, a Mk.III Lancaster struggles to maintain height as the crew coax their battered aircraft slowly home after a gruelling night bombing mission to Germany in the autumn of 1944.
Overall print size: 32” x 23 ½”

Completed in 1986 this moving piece joins the library of other major editions undertaken during this period, classic works such as Bombers Moon, JG-52 and Last Flight Home.
It is therefore a fitting subject to begin this new Military Gallery Archive series, giving fans of Robert's early work the opportunity to acquire an unreleased edition. As with those early and long sold out releases, the prints have been signed by an astonishing collection of Bomber Command veterans which is now impossible to replicate.
Included are many who flew with the legendary 617 Squadron and the signatories on this release flew a staggering 1200 bombing missions between them, making this a historic collectors piece which is destined to become an instant classic.
THE LIMITED EDITION: 400 signed and numbered prints
Joining artist Robert Taylor in signing every print are TWO decorated veterans who flew with 617 Squadron, probably the most elite precision-bombing unit of WWII:
Wg Cdr JOHN BELL MBE DFC
Bomb Aimer with 619 & 617 Sqns
Flt Lt ARTHUR POORE DFC
Pilot with 106 & 617 Sqns
