"FIFTY MILES OUT" by WILLIAM S. PHILLIPS
Artist Proof Edition: $275
Size 32"w x 21-1/2"h
"Fifty Miles Out" could mean either fifty miles from home after the bombing raid or out from the target. There's a sense of majesty and exhilaration but urgency, too. Because coming back they would be setting up to land with possible wounded on board. Fifty miles out from target would have a sense of anticipation and some anxiety about flack and fighter coverage.
