A Friend in Need

A ‘little friend’ – this time in the guise of P51 from 442 Canadian Squadron – rides herd on a lonely stricken B17. With a long way to make home and having lost the protection of the B17 formation the lone aircraft was like a beacon to marauding Luftwaffe fighters. The P51 had the endurance to stay with the B17 all the way back to base and these fighters well deserved the accolade of ‘little friends’ from a grateful B17 force.

The prints available here are the product of a family team (father & two sons) with many years of photographic experience the team is dedicated to producing high quality images especially of classic warbird aircraft.

The Warbird prints gallery contain composite images using many of the above aircraft photographs, often combined with other aircraft, and merged with a background and skyscape sympathetic to the original operational mode of the prototypes.
