Original illustration of a North American P-51 Mustang fighter, as used by the United States Army Air Forces (USAAF) - and several other Allied air forces - during World War 2. The variant depicted in this illustration is the P-51D, the most produced variant of the Mustang, identifiable by the iconic 'teardrop' canopy.

This P-51D Mustang is 'Tika IV', which was flown by Lt Vernon Richards of the 361st Fighter Group, part of the Eighth Air Force. Richards in Tika IV was famously photographed during the early stages of the Normandy campaign - with 'invasion stripes' still painted onto the underside of the plane - and the photo would go on to become the iconic photo of the Mustang. Richards would survive the war and live a long life in New York. Tika IV was transferred to another pilot, Lt Alfred Cook, and sadly lost in a crash near Little Walden.

This illustration by Rob Wisdom is a high quality Giclée art print on cotton-rich fine art paper.

12x16" print shown. Cropping and title position (if applicable) may differ slightly on 'A' size prints.
