Planejunkie.com announces New Aviation Art By Anthony Saunders

Now available to order is a new Aviation Art Print commemorating the aircrews of RAF Bomber Command, Lucky Jane by Anthony Saunders.
 
PUYALLUP, Wash. - Sept. 16, 2021 - PRLog -- With Plane Junkie adding new Aviation Art daily, now to order is a new print of the Avro Lancaster by Anthony Saunders, Lucky Jane. The Limited Edition of 200 print comes signed and numbered by the artist Anthony Saunders and serves as a fitting tribute to the brave airmen who flew Lancaster's with Bomber Command during WWII.

The Avro Lancaster can justifiably claim to have been the RAF's most successful bomber of World War II. Following its first operational sortie in 1942, for the last three years of the war the Lancaster, supported by the Halifax, formed the backbone of Bomber Command's relentless offensive against strategic industrial targets of Nazi Germany. Night after night the brave airmen took off knowing that highly-trained Luftwaffe crews and ferocious ground-based defenses awaited them over objectives that included shipyards, the aircraft industry, transport, synthetic oil plants along with anything else deemed responsible for keeping its war machine functioning. The ultimate success of that long campaign rested largely on the shoulders of the Lancaster, and the bravery of the aircrew who flew and fought in her. Ten Victoria Crosses were awarded to Lancaster crew and, by the end of hostilities these incredible bombers had flown over 156,000 missions and dropped more than 608,000 tons of bombs.

Flying until the end of the war, QR-J Just Jane survived 123 operational sorties, and was one of four Lancaster's from 61 Squadron to join the select 'One Hundred' club.
