RETURN OF THE PATHFINDERS by Anthony Saunders

 

As dawn breaks on a crisp, icy morning, Pathfinder Mosquitos of 139 Squadron return to base at RAF Upwood after a long overnight trip to Germany in early 1944.

Never had there been an aircraft like the de Havilland Mosquito; constructed almost entirely of wood with two Merlin engines bolted under each wing it could outrun any other piston-engine fighter in the world. Only when the Luftwaffe's Me262 jet came on the scene did the enemy have anything of such speed but, unlike the Me262, the Mosquito – nicknamed the ‘Wooden Wonder' – was perhaps the most versatile aircraft of WWII.

This atmospheric piece pays tribute to all those who flew this famous aircraft. Adding great authenticity, this print has been personally signed by highly-respected veterans who flew de Havilland Mosquitos in combat during WWII creating a historic collector's edition:
