I love the rear views of aircraft so I now draw/paint them regularly as most views are three quarter front. This is a redraw of of a previous picture.
This 87 (Fighter) Sqdn has the CO’s Squadron Leader pennant painted on the tail.
87 Sqdn was a night fighter sqdn during the Battle of Britain so the planes were painted black.
This started as a watercolour but was finished with both soft pastel and oil pastel.
This plane was hangared at Real Aeroplane Company, Breighton, Nr Selby, just south of York when I lasted saw it. Unfortunately this aircraft crashed on the 15th September 2007 at the Shoreham Air Show, in West Sussex. The pilot Brian Brown died in the crash.
