Pre-Flight Briefing by Richard Taylor - Drawing


Pre-Flight Briefing by Richard Taylor features RAF Mosquito crews preparing for their next mission.

Some have called the Mosquito ‘the RAF’s greatest warplane of World War 2’. Yet, whatever its plaudits, there is little argument that it was one of the most beautiful and, powered by twin Merlins, one of the fastest. It was certainly the most versatile Allied aircraft to have flown in combat during the war: by the time production ceased, the Mosquito had appeared in 43 different variants – more than any other. And, designed at a time of limited materials, it was mostly built of wood!

Affectionately known as ‘The Wooden Wonder’, the de Havilland Mosquito was rightfully feared by its enemies as it ranged far and wide across Europe, hitting targets with pin- point precision.

In this detailed piece, Richard has chosen the weeks prior to the D-Day as the setting. With the invasion looming, the vital task of dismantling the enemy’s infrastructure across northern France took high priority and there was no better aircraft suited to the task than the Mosquito. As their forthcoming operation becomes clear, Richard depicts the Mosquito crews as they go through one final briefing before take-off and setting out across the English Channel to attack the assigned target for today.

Each print in Richard Taylor's limited edition 'Pre-Flight Briefing' is signed by two highly regarded RAF Mosquito combat veterans:

Flight Lieutenant JOHN TROTMAN DFC* – pilot with 692 Squadron

Flight Lieutenant GEORGE PRICHARD – radar specialist with 151 Squadron.
