We are delighted and honoured that artist Chris Draper (a member of the Guild Of Aviation Artists) will be producing an exclusive watercolour illustration for the BPAG crowdfunder. This will show XT597 and XT905 airborne on an imaginary flight in their fully restored colours. The original work is currently being created but the artist has allowed us to share his preliminary colour study, which is a rough sketch that shows the vision of the final piece.
These will all be signed by Laurie Hilditch and Jon Millo, who were XT597’s aircrew on its final flight (the last flight of any Spey powered Phantom) and are available in A3 size, on heavyweight authentic fine art paper and will be limited in numbers. You can claim one for yourself by pledging here- www.crowdfunder.co.uk/uk-phantom-heritage-centre
