The Memphis Belle - Artist Proof by Philip West


The Memphis Belle by Philip West features the famous B-17 at Bassingborn.

Over three years of continuous air combat the 91st Bombardment Group 'The Ragged Irregulars' were based at Bassingbourn in England. They flew 340 missions with honour and bravery, over occupied Europe and bore such B-17 legends as "Memphis Belle", "Shoo Shoo Baby", "General Ike" and "Nine 'O' Nine. On this day, however, the Memphis Belle is going to have to wait for the snow to be clear before it can depart on yet another dangerous mission over enemy territory. In the meantime, to enable the “Memphis Belle” to leave at the earliest opportunity when the weather clears, groundcrew carry on with their maintenance work in support of a crew and aircraft they all look upon with affection and admiration.

Each print in Philip West's Limited Edition, The Memphis Belle, is individually signed and numbered by the artist.
