This is this month’s (Oct) entry for my Art Club challenge. “Something sporty”
So being keen on aircraft I thought of the Post War Air Races using ex WW2 fighters.
This is a made up scenario so I don’t know if these two planes ever flew against each other.
The blue plane is flown by Group Captain Peter Townsend, Princess Margaret’s friend. I believe she sponsored him.
The other white/silver plane is an RAF entry. (41 Sqdn)
So have you decided what a/c they are. ?? See next image for closeup !!
The Spit is from 41 Sqdn and in 1947s Blackpool Air Race, RN201 was a Mk.XIVe with a Griffon Engine, and clipped wings. Later 41 Sqdn flew Mk. 21 and 22s with 5 bladed props.
The Hurricane Mk.IIc PZ865 (G-AMAU) is the “Last of the Many” and still with the B of B Memorial Flight. It came 2nd in the 1950 Kings Air Race.
