Another artwork by Pavel Rampír, Czech aviation artist and an illustrator of the Revi aviation journal. His drawing depicts a Spitfire Mk. XIV in combat with the V-1 flying bomb at the early morning hour during the Summer of 1944. Many pilots fighting the V-1s preferred to fly during an hour before dawn, when the glare of the jet efflux made their targets easily discernible against the dark terrain.
Original drawing in coloured pencils on cardboard. Pavel’s website is available at: http://www.aircraft.flying.to/
