JV44 by Robert Taylor


A very rare Limited Edition by Robert Taylor signed by four distinguished Luftwaffe Me262 pilots.

In the entire history of fighter aviation there has never been a combat unit like JV-44. Commanded by a General, its pilots were made up, without exception of high scoring, highly decorated fighter aces, flying an aircraft so advanced that its technology was revolutionary. In its brief life during the dying months of WWII it wrote its own short passage in history. As the Allied Forces drove inexorably towards Berlin, General Adolf Galland formed the new JV-44 wing to operate the Messerschmitt Me262 twin jet fighter in a last-ditch effort to stem the tide. The combination of mercurial leadership and advanced fighter aircraft became a magnet towards the Luftwaffe's elite, drawing a host of colourful high-scoring fighter pilots together for a 'last fling' in combat, flying the new jet fighter.

So brilliant was the collection of pilots Galland recruited that the Knights Cross was referred to as the squadron 'badge'. The combination of skilled, experienced pilots, and an aircraft vastly superior to anything else in the air, gave the squadron immediate success. Robert Taylor's limited edition print does superb justice to this unique and historic fighter wing, bringing to life again Adolf Galland's unique Squadron of Experts as they dive into attack at over 900km per hour. Each print is signed and numbered by the artist, and each carries the original signatures of Generals Galland, Steinhoff, Krupinski and Kaiser - all of whom flew the revolutionary Me262 jet fighter in combat with the legendary JV-44. A beautiful print remembering a poignant passage in the history of aviation.

JV44 by Robert Taylor is signed by four famous Me 262 pilots:
Adolf Galland, Johannes Steinhoff, Walter Krupinski and Herbert Kaiser.

We are selling this print on behalf of one of our collectors. It was purchased from ourselves when released in 1987 and has been stored dark and flat since with long term investment in mind. It is in mint condition and is supplied with the original Certificate of Authenticity.
