Once We Were Kings Original Painting
British Experimental and Prototype Aircraft Painting by Aviation Artist Paul Couper GAvA
This magnificent work has been a labour of love for the artist across three years. It celebrates the ingenuity and engineering prowess of the British jet aviation industry (and possibly its demise) with a range of both military and civilian types. It shows the many prototypes and test aircraft that were built from the 1940s-1970s alongside some that only reached mock up or advanced design stages. In many cases where production aircraft resulted these are also shown. arth.
