Description

The exploits of the Mosquito and her crews are the stuff of legend. This magnificent aircraft , the blight of German air and land forces , pulled off some of the most amazingly precise raids of World War Two. Powered by two Rolls Royce Merlin engines and made almost totally from wood and with a top speed in excess of 400 mph , the Mosquito could out-run any other aircraft of its day. Highly nimble , and with its ability to carry virtually every type of weapon available to the RAF , this superb aircraft fulfilled every role performed by the Service , from bomber to reconnaissance , fighter-intruder and night-fighter , from ground and anti-shipping attack missions to chasing and destroying the appalling V1 " doodlebug " rocket missiles. The Mosquito's agility and suitability to tree-top level attacks gave its crews the advantage of surprise , and its high speed allowed it to contest a huge variety of precision bombing missions , most famous of which being the highly successful attacks on Amiens prison and the Gestapo headquarters buildings at Aarhus in Denmark in 1944 , and again hitting the Gestapo headquarters in Copenhagen in 1945. Nicolas Trudgian's painting , Mosquitos at Dusk , conveys in an instant all the attributes of this outstanding attack aircraft : With their twin Merlin's singing at full power , Mk FBV1 Mosquito's of 464 Squadron RAAF present a menacing picture as they set out on a precision low level mission , their streamlined , shark-like shapes silhouetted against the evening glow. Below , the tranquillity of a snow covered English coastal village is briefly disturbed as the Mosquito crews head into the night. A painting worthy of this much acclaimed World War Two plane...Signed by the artist : Nicolas Trudgian , Air Cdre John Ellacombe, Air Cdre Ted Sismore , Flt Lt Douglas Hadland and Sqd Ldr Tom McPhee plus Wing Commander Branse Burbridge on the companion print ' Lone Hunter '...priced @ Sold...for this lovely Remarque and rare companion print ' Lone Hunter '...To complement the purchase of your fine art print, we are now able to offer a professional Picture Framing service.
