Opening Sky by Robert Taylor


Opening Sky by Robert Taylor features P-51 Mustangs of the 78th Fighter Group.

With the morning sun glinting on their fuselages, P-51 Mustangs of the 78th Fighter Group cross the Dutch coastline far below, as they head back towards their base at Duxford, England at the end of a long sweep east of the Rhine crossing, Spring 1945. The final months of the war in Europe lie ahead, and for the P-51 pilots the victory is within sight.  Finally, after years of toil, the sky was theirs.

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 new Tribute Series. It follows the recent release of his popular RAF Hurricane tribute, Height and Sun; and Luftwaffe Me109 tribute Dawn Eagles Rising. 

Each print in Robert Taylor’s Limited Edition, Opening Sky, has been signed by the following veteran P-51 fighter pilots:
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.
