Watermarked by the modern Flight Global, this artwork dates to the 1936 ‘Flight’ magazine.
Featuring sketches of details from the 1936 Society of British Aircraft Manufacturer’s products at the S.B.A.C. show of that year. These kind of pen and ink sketches, as well as being engaging illustrations, also are an effective way of the art and editorial team to draw the reader’s attention to exactly what they want you to look at. A challenge of published communication – solved.
The Westland A39/34 became the Lysander, of course, the Handley Page B9/32 the Hampden, and the Vickers Fighter never got an order, but was known as the ‘Jockey’.
