Hi All, There are some wonderful aviation artists, perhaps we could see some of your favourites. To get things rolling, here is a beauty from Frenchman Romain Hugault

Chis Golds is an aviation artist. In fact he is far better known for his aviation art than he is for his models and model plans.

Nice picture that. It successfully combines aircraft accuracy and 'art', which many aviation artists fail to do well..

I looked up the 'scene' as I recognised Salisbury cathedral. August 15th 1940, an attack on Middle Wallop and Worthy Down airfields. Three JU88s were shot down and it is likely that is the one that crashed at Wellow, half way between Salisbury and Romsey, as it is the nearest to Salisbury Ju88 crash that evening. , .

Hi Richard

Wondering the story of how what looks like a ANSON (they could carry a dorsal turret) shooting down a JU 88. Though the Anson has lost most of its port engine also.?

Hi Alan , it is an Airspeed Oxford. not an Anson. The Oxford did have a dorsal turret. I think the young lady in the first picture would struggle pedalling a mans bike with those high heels?

Eric r,

Ascension turnaround, by Richard (or Robert) Wong. A very poor photograph of what was once my copy of a limited edition. It once hung inside our narrowboat, named "Wideawake", but was lost when the boat was burgled at its mooring and it and several other irreplaceable photos of Ascension were stolen. Have tried long and hard to find another copy, but never had any luck.angryasi turnaround 2.jpg

Richard, Could that actually be St Wulfram's Church in Grantham?   In which case it would be this mid-air collision that is depicted. If you click on the picture you will see the registration lines up: Mid-air collision - Airspeed Oxford / Ju88

It certainly looks like St Wulfram's church Robin. It does not seem big enough for Salisbury Cathederal

With all due respects, it is does not correspond with Salisbury Cathedral's structure; used to live just down the road from it.

Robin, Eric, Mad Dave.

You are correct and I am wrong.

I am within (distant) sight of Salisbury cathedral quite often, am aware of a Do88 crash at nearby Wellow, looked for confirmation and having found it stopped looking. NOT the way to do research

I shouldn't think she'd have a problem. It's usual to pedal with the ball of the foot on the pedal so the heel would be well clear. My pre-clipless racing shoes had curved soles much like a high-heeled shoe - very awkward to walk in though

Excellent pictures, all. Most of the ones displayed in my workshop are of sailing yachts though I do have the iconic picture of the Wright Flyer's first powered flight at Kitty Hawk - which I bought at Kitty Hawk.

Sorry Eric, but your wrong. If you look closely, you'll see that she has cleats on the soles of her shoes, and toe straps fixed to the pedals.
