Robert Taylor’s wonderfully realistic painting captures the very essence of an epic day during the Battle of Britain. A Heinkel III has been brought down, one of many never to make it home on this bright and sunny day. As the Luftwaffe bomber’s crew emerge from their broken aircraft, relieved to have survived the crash-landing, a Mk I Spitfire from No 66 Squadron roars low overhead to verify another victory.
