Product Description



Edition Size - 300

THE LIMITED EDITION Every print has been personally signed by the artist, Robert Taylor, together with THREE of the USAAF’s foremost P-51 Mustang Aces:

THE LIMITED EDITION Colonel CLARENCE ‘BUD’ ANDERSON - 357th FG / 16.25 victories
Lieutenant Colonel CLYDE EAST - 10th Photo Recon Group / 14.5 victories
Colonel ART FIEDLER - 325th FG / 8 victories

With the morning sun glinting on their fuselages, P-51 Mustangs of the 78th Fighter Group cross the Dutch coastline far below, heading back towards their base at Duxford, England at the end of a long sweep east of the Rhine crossing in Spring 1945. The final months of the war in Europe lie ahead, and for the P-51 pilots the victory is within sight. Robert Taylor’s visually poetic masterpiece, Opening Sky, pays tribute to the American P-51 Mustang fighter pilots who flew and fought for freedom during World War II, and is the third in his highly successful Tribute Series. It follows the release of his popular RAF Hurricane tribute, Height and Sun; and Luftwaffe Me109 tribute Dawn Eagles Rising.
