Out of the Dragon's Den by Richard Taylor


Out of the Dragon's Den by Richard Taylor features a B-25 Mitchell of the Doolittle Raiders over Japan.

Issued with the companion print 'USS Hornet' taken from Richard's detailed drawing.

It was the morning of Monday, 18 April 1942 and, taking a final look at the carrier rapidly disappearing into the distance, the B-25s headed west on what each of the five man crews knew was a one-way ride. With luck they might make it to Nationalist China but first they had an important mission to complete - destination Tokyo! Richard Taylor’s powerful painting depicts the scene immediately after the Raiders had carried out their mission. One of the last B- 25 Mitchells, having successfully bombed its target, makes its escape towards mainland China. As the navigator sets the new course, their path takes them close to targets hit by other Raiders, dark columns of smoke rising rapidly from the burning oil and carnage below.

Out of the Dragon's Den by Richard Taylor is signed by three veterans that took part in the Doolittle Raid:
Lieutenant Colonel RICHARD E. COLE - the co-pilot of General Doolittle’s aircraft, B-25 #1 which attacked the city of Tokyo.
Staff Sergeant DAVID J. THATCHER - the Flight engineer and gunner on B-25 #9 which attacked Tokyo Bay in the town of Kawasaki.
Master Sergeant EDWARD J. SAYLOR - the Navigator and Bombardier on B-25 #15 which bombed targets in Kobe.

Aviation Machinist 1st Class GEORGE H. MAYNOR - as Plane Captain he was directly involved with the B-25s and was on the flight deck when the Raiders took off.
