World War One Aviation Dogfight Art Prints.- Aviation Art Prints .com
DHM2444. Knights of the Sky by Nicolas Trudgian. <p> The dramatic scene depicts an aerial dog-fight between Sopwith Camels and SE5A fighters of the Royal Flying Corps, and the bright red planes of Baron von Richthofens JG1 fighter wing. High over Northern France, the highly manoeuvrable fighters wheel and turn in the cauldron of close aerial combat, the artist bringing alive that evocative era when aerial combat first began. <p><b>Last 20 prints available of this sold out edition. </b><b><p> Signed by Flight Lieutenant Philip Bristow (deceased), in addition to the artist. <p>  Limited edition of 600 prints. <p>Paper size 17 inches x 22 inches (43cm x 56cm)
DHM1646. Captain Roy Brown engages the Red Baron, 21st April 1918 by Ivan Berryman. <p> Mystery still surrounds just why Manfred von Richthofen risked so much in chasing the novice pilot Wilfred Wop May into Allied-occupied territory on the morning of Sunday, 21st April 1918, but it was to be his last flight, this error of judgement costing him his life. Von Richthofen had broken from the main fight involving Sopwith Camels of 209 Sqn to chase Mays aircraft, but found himself under attack from the Camel of Captain Roy Brown. All three aircraft turned and weaved low along the Somme River, the all red Triplane coming under intense fire from the ground as well as from Browns aircraft. No one knows exactly who fired the crucial bullet, but Manfred von Richthofens aircraft was seen to dive suddenly and impact with the ground. The Red Baron was dead and his amazing run of 80 victories was over. The painting shows Mays aircraft (D3326) in the extreme distance, pursued by DR.1 (425/17) and Browns Camel (B7270) in the foreground. <b><p> Signed limited edition of 1150 prints. <p> Image size 17 inches x 12 inches (43cm x 31cm)

*Signature Value : £70 (matted)

Philip Bristow joined the Royal Naval Air Service in August 1917 and was sent for immediate flying training in France, qualifying as a pilot and returning to the UK to train on seaplanes, after which he began submarine surveillance flights. He was forced to ditch his aircraft into the sea on three occasions, twice using carrier pigeons to summon assistance. He was rescued on these occaions by a trawler, a drifter and a destroyer respectively. Transferring to the RAF on April 1, 1918, he was posted to 219 Squadron, flying the Short 184, where he saw active service flying combat patrold on the Northern Front. He died in late 2001 / early 2002, aged 101, and just a fortnight short of his 102nd birthday.
