Hawker Hurricanes in the Battle of Britain, summer 1940

I drew the Hurricanes in 1990, when I worked in Langley, near Slough in Berkshire, England. Hurricanes (and later Typhoons and Tempests) were built at the Hawker factory in Langley. I saw no trace of it in my time there.

Painting of Stingray pursued by a mechanical fish

Stingray pursued by a mechanical fish

Stingray (and the mechanical fishes) were in a puppet-based 1960s sci-fi series on UK television by Gerry and Sylvia Anderson. Although technically a submarine, Stingray has the appearance and layout of a light aircraft.

I made the mistake of showing the propeller blades as they often appear in photographs. However, the eyes do not see the blades at the normal speed of rotation of a propeller.

Northrop YF-17s painting about 1977

The Northrop YF-17 did not go into production, but it was developed into the F/A-18 Hornet.
