Robert Taylor has been a prolific sketcher and a painter since childhood. After leaving art school he spent five years as a picture restorer working on many Old Masters and became recognised as one of the leading art restorers. When offered an opportunity to paint for Military Gallery, he became a professional painter. It was at this time that he began concentrating on marine and aviation subjects, and he has since established himself as the foremost aviation artist painting today. Robert Taylor's limited edition prints have attracted a large international following. From the world of aviation such notables as General Jimmy Doolittle, Sir Douglas Bader and top-scoring ace AVM Johnnie Johnson have enthused about his talent. His paintings hang in some of the most prestigious military museums around the world : The RAF Museum in London, The National Air and Space Museum in Washington, The International Air and Space Museum in San Diego, and The US Navy Museum in Pensacola. His one man exhibition at the National Air and Space Museum was described by the museum as their most popular art exhibition ever. Taylor's prodigious knowledge of subject, combined with a rare draughtman's talent and a classic style of painting has brought Taylor to the top of his profession. His canvases are expressive, distinctive, and exude a talent that is nothing short of exciting. His paintings are complete works of art in every sense.

Major Julius Jack Jacobson (deceased)

No Photo Available

Jack Jacobson joined the Service in March 1941, and flew his first combat missions in October 1942. Jack Jacobson was John Mitchells regular wingman, and flew in that position on the Yamamoto Mission. Flying P39s and later P38s he saw action at Guadalcanal and in the Solomons, flying a total of 111 combat missions. After leaving the Service in 1946 he rejoined to serve two years in the Korean conflict. Cracking the Japanese naval code, U.S. intelligence discovered the travel plans of Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto, architect of the Pearl Harbor attack. On April 18, 1943, sixteen Army Air Force P-38 fighters took off to intercept his aircraft. Flying at altitudes of 50 feet or less over 400 miles of open ocean while maintaining radio silence, they arrived at precisely the right moment—a phenomenal feat of navigation. Sixty-two years later, exactly which pilot shot down Yamamoto’s aircraft in the ensuing turmoil of aerial combat remains a controversy. “Jack” Jacobson, one of only three living Yamamoto Mission pilots, flew as wingman to mission leader Major John W. Mitchell. Jack Jacobson passed away on 8th April 2005.

Airacobra

Click the name above to see prints featuring Airacobra aircraft.

Manufacturer : Bell

Airacobra

In early 1937, Bell Aircraft presented a revolutionary fighter design to the USAAC, the P-39 Airacobra. Incorporating machine guns and the most powerful cannon available, the new design by Robert Woods, utilized many revolutionary design features. The all-metal, low wing, monoplane design utilized a centrally located engine in the fuselage, a feature which enhanced maneuverability. A nine foot shaft ran through the cockpit to drive the propeller. Woods design was the first fighter to incorporate a forward tricycle landing gear, which gave the P-39 pilot great visibility while on the ground. The first prototype flew in 1938. Equipped with a supercharged Allison water-cooled V-12 rated at 1,150-HP, the prototype performed admirably. It exhibited a top speed of 390-MPH, and an amazingly quick rate of climb. Unfortunately for the Airacobra, the USAAC decided to eliminate the supercharged engine from the project, a move which would relegate the Airacobra to the distinction of being Americas forgotten fighter of WW II.
