The Flying Tin Openers Original Painting - Eurofighter , Jaguar, Phantom, Hurricane
6 Squadron History Original Painting / Drawing by Graham Henderson GAvA
Graham Henderson's newest venture is to celebrate some of the most famous squadrons in the RAF, RN and USAF.
Here the artist shows some of the aircraft most associated with 6 Squadron, the RAF's famous 'Flying Tin Openers'. The nickname came from the Squadron's use of the Hawker Hurricane Mk.IId in the tank-busting role during WWII. One of these aircraft is included, along with the McDonnell-Douglas Phantom FGR.2, 6 squadron being the first operational unit in the RAF to use the type, a SEPECAT Jaguar which served with the squadron in multiple guises from 1974-2007 and the Eurofighter Typhoon which now serves as the unit's primary aircraft.
This is the original painting/ pencil drawing from which our prints are taken. It comes framed ready to hang and measures 18" x 14" (45cm x 35cm)
