New hi res photo for prints
This is one of my favourite paintings. I’ve painted it twice once for the Flight Engineer and another for his navigator.
The pilot used the church spire to line up for take off.
Note the rear turret turned sideways so the tail gunner can get out quick if they have a crash on take-off.
Acrylic on canvas board 18 × 24 inches, 1996.
