Hawker Typhoon MkIb fighter-bombers of 247 Squadron exit the target area near Falaise at full throttle, wreaking devastation with their powerful rockets as fuel and ammunition from the retreating German column explode with shattering force. The Typhoons will hurtle back to base to re-arm and hastily re-fuel, ready for yet another withering strike on the encircled Wehrmacht columns.

In our opinion, this superb edition from the worlds most collected aviation artist is quite literally one of the best images he has ever produced.

Robert has only once before depicted the Typhoon and in his usual unsurpassed style, he captures perfectly the raw power and sheer ferocity of these awesome aircraft as they wreak havoc amongst the German artillery during the famous Battle for Normandy. As a lasting tribute to the brave young RAF Fighter Pilots of the twenty squadrons of rocket-firing Hawker Typhoons who flew those perilous ground attacks during the invasion, CLOSING THE GAP continues to prove hugely collectable amongst aviation specialists.

We are offering the Limited Edition through our Webshop with three signatures. Should you like one of the now very limited Artist Proofs, Normandy Veteran edition, Knights Cross edition or the Wittmann Publishers Proof, please contact us for a price at [email protected].
