Unscheduled Arrival by Richard Taylor - Collectors Edition


Unscheduled Arrival by Richard Taylor features Spitfires of 19 Squadron in the September of 1940.

September 1940, and Mk1 Spitfires from 19 Sqn have been ordered south to engage heavily escorted Luftwaffe bomber formations heading for the Thames Estuary and London. Following intense fighting the Spitfires’ ammunition is expended, and low on fuel the squadron makes a hurried landing at a forward airfield to replenish empty tanks and re-arm. Within minutes they will be airborne again.

Together with the uninviting waters of the Channel, the RAF were the only thing stopping an invasion by Hitler’s all-conquering Panzers. Completely outnumbered Fighter Command had been forced to go head to head with the most powerful air force in the world and, by the end of October, through raw courage and determination were victorious.

Regarded as one of the best pencil artists in the industry, Richard Taylor has hand-crafted this superb drawing on to antique buff paper with intense colour skilfully interwoven into his delicate pencil work, creating a stunning collectors piece.

Each print in Richard Taylor's limited edition 'Unscheduled Arrival - Collectors Edition' is signed by six famous Battle of Britain veterans:
