Called for duty

sold out

During the 1982 Falklands War the Sea Harriers of the Royal Navy's Fleet Air Arm built a legend around this small, subsonic fleet defence fighter. Tactics, skill and strategy combined to produce a world class air warfare performance as it took on the Mirage and A4 equipped Argentinian airforce, attacked their ground troops as well as defending the fleet and the landing Britsh forces.

"Called for duty" depicts a pair of 801 NAS Sea Harrier on a combat air patrol forward of the fleet climbing to mid-level altitude in a cold, grey southern ocean skyscape.

"Called for duty" was completed and sold in 1986, it was my first published work with 2000 lithographic prints being produced by the Circuit Gallery at Biggin Hill. 

Original oil on canvas, image size 70cm x 40cm. Signed by the artist.

Limited edition prints

The original image file is low quality - the painting is sharp and detailed.
