"The Lancaster is one of my favourite aircraft to paint. It lends itself beautifully to all the glass in the airframe catching light from every angle. The basic concept of the image was to catch the aircraft in a sunset environment with the sun just catching the tops of the clouds. The image was to depict the Lanc. in a none agressive way, peacefully plying its way in the company of another Lanc.

The print is signed by Wallace McIntosh, an ex Lanc. rear gunner. Wallace has the destinction of holding the record for Bomber Command kills from the rear turret of Avro Lancaster EM-M LL973 standing at 8 confirmed kills. Wallace has a book about himself and his exploits called "Gunnig for the Enemy" published by Grub Street."


LL973/M, flown mostly by CO Wg Cdr JF Grey, & P/O CJ Mike Solly. Lost on Wesseling 21/22 June 1944 with the Solly crew: 3 kia, 2 pow, 2 evd). In LL973 Grey's gunners downed 3 fighters during one sortie.
LL902/A probably did the most Lanc ops on 207, crashing at Little Rissington 15 March 1945, F/O Michael Cooke's crew all died.
