Evening Victory by rOEN911 Evening Victory by rOEN911
Something that was to my WIP folder for ages...

Flying as Leader of B Flight, 41 Sqn, on 15th August 1940, Pilot Officer Mike Johnson and the rest of his flight found themselves among a mass of Messerschmitt Bf.110s that had been detailed to escort a bomber force of Heinkel He111s on a raid on the North of England. Having made one head-on attack on one of the Bf.110s, Shipman manoeuvred his Spitfire Mk.1 onto the tail of another and fired a long burst into it.

I have to agree with Caastle's comment: his doubt was right in place. The Spitfire plane RF-A belonged to Pilot Officer Miroslav Feric from the Polish 303rd Squad, who himself was Czech if I'm right. He is told to be one of the most vigillant pilot aces among his highly decorated Polish colleagues taking part in the Battle of Britain. Well, dear rOEN911, great artistic job, but I don't know why you put some wrong story here, if there is a true background to the circumstances presented in your picture?! I think you should pay more caution, especially as Feric, the pilot, left his life for Britain's freedom, while his own country get occupied by communists after the war, making at least all his effort kind of meaningless when regarding his aim in a political perspective. Nonetheless, you created a beautiful artwork.

Simply gorgeous work!

Oh BF-110, you were just another victim of the flawed heavy fighter concept...

Very nice. One small nitpick if I may, the Spit appears to have the squadron code for 303 (Polish) Squadron (RF), the squadron code for 41 Squadron should be EB

Another masterpiece!

I'm glad you are posting on the A2A forum - and then A2A post a link on Facebook, so I get notified three times - once here, once on A2A and once on FB!

But I don't mind at all. It's good to see you getting the publicity you deserve. :-)

even that's a legitimate toss-up, I think. Both achieved great results and looks through different design approaches. I don't think a design like the Spit would ever been designed in the US due to it's manufacturing complexities, but I think Mitchell's lesser compromises in that regard enabled it to enjoy such an amazing ability to expand it's performance envelope.
