|The painting depicts two
North American P-51D Mustangs (Janie and Marinell) overflying a 490th
BG (Heavy) Boeing B-17G Flying Fortress (called "Carolina Moon") based
at RAF Eye (home of the wartime 490th BG).
The painting was completed in oils on a 1000mm x 750mm stretch deep
edge canvas. It was auctioned throughout the 2015 airshow season at
various events in Essex, Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and Lincolnshire.
The aim of the 490th Bomb Group Memorial Project was to raise funds for
a memorial to be erected at what is left of Eye airfield, this happened
in 2016. The project still has a fundraising arm, to help with the
maintenance of the memorial and heritage trails.
