Mission Beyond Darkness by Robert Taylor


In 'Mission Beyond Darkness' artist Robert Taylor pays tribute to one of the most remarkable missions during the naval air war in the Pacific.

Following the attack against Admiral Ozawa’s Japanese carrier fleet on June 20, 1944, Admiral Mitscher defies all rules of naval engagement: In total darkness, with the ever-present danger of enemy submarines, he orders every ship in his Task Force 58 to switch on lights to guide over 100 returning carrier-borne aircraft, all desperately low on fuel.  Amid the confusion, unable to get a landing slot aboard the USS Lexington, and now out of fuel, a pilot and his gunner scramble from their ditched SB2B Curtiss Helldiver, as a Fletcher class destroyer manoeuvres to make the pick up.

Each print in Robert Taylor's Limited Edition, Mission Beyond Darkness, is signed by 4 aircrew personally involved in this operation:
Commander Alex Vracui USN
Captain Donald Gordon USN
Lieutenant Ralph Yaussi USNR
Air Gunner James Curry.
