Three Dimentional Playground - Supermarine Spitfire
Supermarine Spitfire Mk.I Art Print by Aviation Artist Chris French
“To a fighter pilot the massive vault of sky blue is a playground. It is something he feels only he can understand and is his own, personal, arena for showing his prowess. Being a fighter pilot isn’t only a job, it’s an attitude. It’s competitiveness, aggressiveness, cockiness and the will to be second best to no-one”. These are the words of WWII-Vietnam ace Robin Olds and they are perfectly illustrated here by a 92 squadron Spitfire, where even in times of war the sheer beauty of nature and the cleanest lines an aircraft designer can produce meet in perfect harmony.
