I’ve reprocessed (is that a word?) this image – an old favourite
For Vulcan lovers everywhere…
Very brave men flew these Lysander aircraft during WW2. The RAF pilots who flew these aircraft behind enemy lines, landed and either picked up or dropped off resistance fighters. The pilots would land in the dead of night in out of the way fields guided by only three people on the ground who held torches. No GPS or navigational aids in those days. The aircraft were unarmed.
Let’s try this one again. It didn’t post properly last time.
Sheer undiluted power. From an era when we British used to build fine aircraft. A Lightning (AKA an intercontinental ballistic missile with a pilot sitting on the top!)
An old favourite reworked…
The T1154 transmitter and the R1155 receiver were the first radios I used to transmit and receive signals (in my teens in the 1960s). These transmitters and receivers were used in Royal Air Force heavy bombers and other aircraft during World War 2. These transmitters and receivers used Morse code and the morse code signal used to ‘chirp’ (sounded a bit like a demented bird on drugs!). Some ‘chirping’ Morse code here.
We used to print, frame and sell this image. We called it ‘Vulcan Spray’. We sold hundreds of them.
The Spitfire – a truly elegant aircraft…
The Spit (1)
…..but which aircraft?
The most iconic WW2 aircraft by far…
Available here at high resolution if anyone would like to print it.

Some Photoshop skulduggery…

Should never have been scrapped by the RAF!
It’s not everyone who gets to kiss a decorated Royal Air Force officer!
