Are you a fan of the 352nd Fighter Group?

Well if you are then your going to love this work by Troy White. He specialises in the P-51 Mustangs of the 352nd Fighter Group dubbed the "Bluenosed Bastards of Bodney". To quote the website...

" The Bluenosers flew 420 combat missions and destroyed 519-1/2 Luftwaffe planes in the air and additional 287 on the ground against the loss of 118 of their own in combat. The group produced 29 aces with five or more aerial victories."

New Robert Taylor print

Just found out what the next Robert Taylor painting is and its an absolute cracker! Its called "The Fighting Red Tails" and features the Mustangs of the Tuskegee Airmen. I know there are many Mustang paintings out there now but I think the Tuskegee Airmen are due a fitting tribute from one of the finest military aviation artists in the world don't you?
