Luxury to Luxor - Handley Page H.P 42
Imperial Airways Handley Page H.P 42 Heracles over the Sphinx Airliner Art Print by Aviation Artist Charles J. Thompson GAvA
The epitome of British airliners of the 1930s, the H.P 42 operated over a wide range of routes. Along their myriad journeys, Imperial Airways could take in many of the sights of history, one of the most famous being the Sphinx. Typical of Charles’ love of unusual themes and compositions this picture successfully the two icons of different eras in a most pleasing way.
