As dawn breaks a pair of Spitfire Mk1s fly high above the clouds over southern England in late 1940.
With its sleek, graceful design, instantly recognizable by its thin, aerodynamically advanced elliptical wings, the Supermarine Spitfire was the creation of R. J. Mitchell, an aeronautical creative genius. His fighter was to become not only the most important Allied aircraft of World War II, but the most famous British fighter in history.
Gerald Coulson is one of the foremost Aviation Artists in the history of the genre and this majestic painting pays tribute to this iconic aircraft and the pilots that flew it.
