The Sky is the Canvas

Having found a large trove of aviation-related World War II artwork, Roger decided to show some additional aircraft paintings today at the museum, these pieces focused on the war over Europe.

The artwork at 2:53 depicts the Fighter Group my dad was supply sgt for. Yellow-nosed Mustangs in the 361st Group of the 8th Air Force, Army Air Corps.
I have this print in my office, signed by around 30 of the vets of the 361st, and was able to meet the artist when he attended the 361st Reunion to obtain the signatures on his prints in 2001.
At 6:10 is Urban Drew (also of the 361st) as he sunk a Nazi Blohm & Voss BV238, the prototype of the largest flying boat in WW II.
Thanks Zoy!
