Dangerous Coast

Robert Taylor

Size: 27" x 19"
Edition: 200
Subject: Mosquitos of the Banff Strike Wing.

A large force of Mosquitos from RAF Coastal Command’s Banff Strike Wing exit a deep-sided fjord along Norway’s rugged, heavily defended mountainous coast. In the distance, smoke and explosions reverberate from their successful rocket strike against enemy coastal shipping, destroying yet another cargo of iron ore destined for the furnaces of Germany’s industrial war machine. Above them P-51 Mustangs provide top cover support should any patrolling enemy fighters decide to make an appearance.

The de Havilland Mosquito was arguably the finest multi-role combat aircraft of World War II and, remarkably, one of the few front-line aircraft constructed almost entirely of wood - few other warbirds were built for so many different duties. Amongst its countless roles it formed the core of Coastal Command’s legendary anti-shipping strike force, and it is this role that is the subject of Robert Taylor's thrilling painting, paying tribute to the Mosquito crews of World War II.

Each print in Robert Taylor’s Limited Edition, Dangerous Coast, is signed by:
 
Flight Lieutenant DES CURTIS DFC - Navigator / Banff Strike Wing
Warrant Officer RICHARD ‘DICK’ MAYWOOD - Pilot / Pathfinders & Light Night Strike Force
Flight Lieutenant BRIAN BEATTIE - Pilot / Banff Strike Wing.
