Painting of RAF Spitfire

"Spitfire Storm"

In the summer of 1940, a Mk1 Spitfire sails over the rain-drenched landscape of southern England. The storm clouds drifting into the distance are a reminder that, despite the apparent calm, danger is never far away.

This particular aircraft, AZ-H (N3277) from RAF 234 Squadron, was based at Middle Wallop, Hampshire, in August of 1940. On the 15th of August she was engaged in a scrap with the enemy over the English Channel, near the port of Swanage. Pilot Officer Richard Hardy was forced to land his aeroplane near Cherbourg and was immediately taken prisoner. His Spitfire was repaired and subsequently fitted with a Mercedes-Benz DB601 engine.
