Following close behind the damaged B-24, the RAF Spitfire flies over the English Channel towards the White Cliffs of Dover. It has one job - help ensure that the B-24 makes it back to base safely, otherwise call Air-Sea Rescue to report the crash into the icy blue depths of the Channel. After a mission that resulted in almost losing the airplane, the B-24 hopes to limp along with only some of its engines still intact, getting closer to its home base by the minute. Signed by Artist William S. Phillips, this fine art print is the perfect centerpiece for any WWII or Spitfire collector.

This print has been SOLD OUT for years and is only available as a Secondary Market offering.

Never Framed & Stored Flat in Smoke-Free Environment.

About the Artist:

“Aviation was my first artistic love,” says William S. Phillips, “but my true, enduring love remains my Christian faith, home and family. So it is my pleasure to combine all of it in my work. The historical aviation subjects, I research; the contemporary and nostalgic subjects, I live.”

Phillips grew up loving art but never thought he could make it his livelihood. At college he majored in criminology, and he had been accepted into law school when four of his paintings were sold at an airport restaurant. That was all the incentive he needed to begin his work as a fine art painter.

Bill Phillips is now the aviation artist of choice for many American heroes and the nostalgic landscape artist of choice for many collectors. Bill’s strengths as a landscape painter are what gave him an edge in the aviation field: respect and reverence for a time and place. When one sees his aviation pieces, thoughts are about the courageous individuals who risked their lives for our freedom. In Bill’s nostalgic works, the viewer understands fully what that freedom is... the precious values that make life worth living.
