RAF 100; Hawker Hurricane Print

RAF Hawker Hurricane

To celebrate 100 years of the Royal Air Force, I’ve put together a special priced print offer on one of my photographs.

The image is of a RAF Hawker Hurricane in Battle of Britain 1940 colours, during a 70th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain air display at the Biggin Hill Air Fair in 2010.

The sight of the fighter plane flying by rays of light as they create a break in the clouds brings special symbolism to the image, the plane and mostly to the heroism of the RAF during the Battle of Britain and WWII.

To view the image, available in colour and two variations of black and white, please visit the RAF 100 Battle Of Britain album.
