FIGHTER PILOT ROBERT L. SCOTT
FIGHTER PILOT ROBERT L. SCOTT 
SIGNED ROBERT CARLIN PRINT

This museum quality framed print measures 29" x 25." The artist, Robert Carlin, is a noted aviation artist with paintings displayed in the office of airline presidents, astronauts and senators as well as in several museums including the Smithsonian, the U.S. Archives, the Air Force Museum and the USAF Academy.

The scene depicted took place on July 31, 1942 and shows the legendary exploits over the Burma Road of Col. Robert L. Scott Jr. Scott served as a one man air force when the tower called to tell him that enemy aircraft were coming up the Canton railway. With only 20 gallons of fuel left in his aircraft, Scott flipped on his gun arming switch and at once spotted a bomber on the cloud tops. As he started his attack, he saw two escoring Zeros above and behind the bomber. A raging battle ensued, with the bomber finally spiraling down smoking. The Zeros succeeded in hitting Scott's plane called "Old Exterminator" however they didn't take him down and one Zero would eventually crash near the already downed bomber. Scott took his aircraft into a power glide successfully landing on fumes.

This print is number 533 in a series of 1000. It is signed in the lower left corner by the artist. In the lower right corner is a small photograph of Scott alongside his full signature, "Robert L. Scott, Jr."
