Pathfinders Away by Stephen Brown features RAF Avro Lancasters of 83 and 35 Squadrons climbing into the evening sky over Cambridgeshire as they head out for a night mission over Germany. The No. 8 Group Pathfinder Force played a crucial role in the success of the RAF's strategic bombing offensive of World War II. The elite, highly trained crews flew ahead of the main bomber force and located and marked enemy targets. The missions were highly dangerous and the chances of surviving the minimum 60-sortie operational tour were small. 50 Limited Editions - signed by the artist only. 5 Artist Proofs - 5 pilot signatures - SOLD OUT The Artist Proofs are additionally signed by the following distinguished aircrew veterans: Squadron Leader L S 'Benny' Goodman 617 Sqn Pilot, Tirpitz raid.
