'SALUTE TO THE BRAVE" -
NEW RELEASE
by ANTHONY SAUNDERS

It was the crew’s first mission together; a raid on the Focke-Wulf fighter production factory in Bremen, but for rookie pilot Charlie Brown, on only his second combat mission, 20 December 1943 quickly turned into a nightmare. Flying with the 527th Bomb Squadron, his B-17 Ye Olde Pub was badly damaged over the target as intense, accurate flak took out one engine, damaged another and shattered the bomber’s nose. Down on power and slowing, he’d still managed to press home the attack and release his bomb load on target but, as they turned and headed for home, the crew found themselves falling behind the main formation. The straggler now became a magnet for the encircling enemy fighters, who pulverised the already battered Fortress.

For over four decades, we have had the opportunity to provide aviation art collectors and WWII history buffs with special, signed aviation prints. We represent all of the top aviation artists in the world and we know all the prints that have ever been published, so if you are looking for a print, let us help you find it. Most importantly, we have a selection of prints that were signed by pilots who fought in significant wars, like World War I, World War II, Vietnam, and Korea - many of them are no longer with us. Virginia was the first person to sell aviation art in the U.S and to sell prints actually signed by the pilots. Our experience bringing famous Aces over from Germany and Britain, allows us to bring our customers closer to their favorite pilots than they ever imagined and the good signature prints are becoming increasingly unavailable. We invite you to browse our website either by
Artist, Airplane Type or Title.


Below are some of our newer releases for your enjoyment.
