Threatening Skies by Richard Taylor


Threatening Skies by Richard Taylor features USAAF B-29 Superfortresses in combat with Japanese fighters.

Issued with a companion print 'Into the Sun' signed by the artist.

Richard Taylor's spectacular painting, recreates an encounter on 19 February 1945. As dawn breaks over the Pacific, a determined force of Japanese Ki-44s launch a surprise attack on a large formation of USAAF B-29 Superfortresses as they approach the Japanese mainland. B-29 gunners let rip as one fighter flashes past, with a second fighter closing at high speed. Chunks of the B-29's port wing and aileron have been taken out in the initial attack, and with another Japanese fighter fast on its tail, the outcome of this particular encounter hangs in the balance. A total of ten Superfortresses fell victim that day.
