Tokyo Bound by Nicolas Trudgian features B-25s of the Doolittle Raiders launching from the USS Hornet.
On April 18, 1942, under the leadership of Lieutenant Colonel Jimmy Doolittle, a small force of B-25 Mitchell light bombers set forth on one of the most audacious air raids of World War II. Launching, in a rough sea, from the heaving deck of the carrier USS Hornet, the crews knew that even if they achieved success, they were not to return. Their mission: to bomb Tokyo. Nicolas Trudgian's stunning portrayal of Jimmy Doolittle's B-25 depicted moments after leaving the deck of the Hornet.
Tokyo Bound by Nicolas Trudgian is signed by four of General 'Jimmy' Doolittle's famous aircrew who took part in the historic raid on Tokyo:
Brigadier General EVERETT W. HOLSTROM
Major HOWARD A. SESSLER
Captain J. ROYDEN STORK
Major GRIFFITH P. WILLIAMS.
Published in 1997 this print sold out some time ago and is becoming increasingly difficult to find.
Condition: this copy has two small handling creases on the outer edge of the right side white border - each about 1.5 cm , they are not immediately obvious and would not be visible if farmed. It is otherwise excellent with strong 'as new' colours, having never been framed and having been stored flat and dark at room temperature. It comes with the original Certificate of Authenticity. Normal price for a perfect example of this print would be £270.
The faults would be difficult to show in a photograph - however the print is covered by our 'No Quibble Guarantee' so if its not as you expected you can return it for a full refund.
Note: the 'Nicolas Trudgian' logo on the bottom right of the image does not appear on the actual print itself.
