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.
