Question Best Aviation Print?

Looking around at my aviation prints mine has to be the Victor K2 55 Squadron print from Marham!

What collection do other PPRuNe members consider their best aviation print?

I have three prints that I rate as favourites. One a C-130K arriving at Port Stanley in the rain, shortly after the 1982m conflict. Two Concorde landing in a storm by Mike Rondot. Three A Dakota supply dropping over the Burmese Jungle in the early morning mist by Kit Carson?

My favourite of the ones we have hung around various walls of the house is this one, Hurricane Force by Robert Taylor, and signed by Pete Brothers, Peter Townsend, Frank Carey and Geoffrey Page.

My favourite is ĎReturn to the Futureí by Ronald Wong. A reimagining of what the TSR2 may have looked like at the turn of the millennium. He even personally signed it for me.

I bought that in the late 80ís, it certainly is impressive.
Paid to have it professionally framed, well worth the money.

I don’t own any prints, I do have a few originals though.

Speaking of originals I was watching one on evil bay of a pair of Dead Sparrow Hawks that I thought were excellent. Just a shame it’s the Dead Sparrows. see

Almost a 'classic' jet nowadays! Although the one landing in rain was probably better.

London Guard by Adrian Rigby

Shows Jumbo Gracie, OC B Flt 56 sqn in his very tired US-Z Hurricane R2689 sometime in August 1940. On 30 august after shooting down 2 He111s Gracie crash landed R2689 which burnt out. The following day he was taken to sick bay with a broken neck.

My hero. He died over Hanover in 1944.

I have lots of aviation prints including some already seen above. My favourite though has to be this one.


It is a canvas print of a photograph I took of my son landing from his first Typhoon flight. Roughly a 4ft x 2ft canvas. Sadly camera phone shot does not do it justice.

I was at school with Garry, also fairly well acquainted with Ivan Berryman

I'd be over the moon to have that on my wall.
