Secondary Market: $695
Edition of 1,250
Members of the 56th Fighter Group turn their P-47 Thunderbolts for take off to face their Luftwaffe
foes once again. This great print is part of a
pair commemorating the Mighty Eighth.
On 26 November, 1943, the P-47s of the 56th Fighter Group were tasked to escort B-24 LIberators of the 392nd Bomb Group on a dangerous mission to attack the heavily defended industrial and dockyard facilities in the German port of Breman.
Robert Taylor's masterful portrayal of 'The Wolfpack' evokes the menacing, raw power of the 56th Fighter Group's P-47 Thunderbolts as they climb through majestic cloud formations stretching as far as the eye can see. With 'Bud' Mahurin in the lead aircraft and 'Bunny' Comstock off his tail, they are already high above the east coast of England, in moments they will link up with the B-24's to begin the perilous journey deep into Germany.
Adding great credence to this exceptional new limited edition, each print has been signed by some of the most distinguished veterans of Zemke's famous 'Wolfpack'.
