Hard to find Limited Edition Lithograph, entitled ''The Bottisham Four'', 26 July 1944, image size 18''x24''. This litho is based on the famous photograph of four P51 Mustangs from the 361st Fighter Group, 375th Fighter Squadron, based in Bottisham, England, about six miles east of Cambridge. Signed by the artist Les Carter. The photograph and painting depict four Mustangs, three of which are slightly different variants -- a B Model, a D Model, and a dorsel-fin D Model. Litho is also signed by three of the four pilots depicted in the image-Francis Glankler, Urban Drew, and D.W. ''Red'' Rowlett. Glankler flew P47s and P51s and was a Squadron Leader in the 361st Fighter Group and received five Distinguished Flying Crosses and thirteen air medals. Drew is most famous for shooting down two German Me-262 jet fighters with his propeller-driven Mustang. Drew amassed 700 combat hours in P51s and flew 76 missions with the 361st. Condition is excellent with beautiful image and clear signatures.
Also included will be a copy of the original photo that the print was depicted from that you can have or frame up with the print. This photo can been seen in the last photo of the listing.
**IMPORTANT STUFF** - I have several copies of this print, so you will receive a print number that is very close but different than the print number depicted in the listing. Also, if these prints were ever released with a printed COA, I never received one. I guarantee the signatures to be authentic however.
