On the 75th Anniversary of Battle of Britain Day – 15th September 2015 – Tom Neil returned to the skies in the rear seat of Sptifire SM520 as part of the Goodwood commemorative flypast, involving more than 30 Spitfires & Hurricanes.
The image captures the moment Tom took off from the old RAF Westhampnett and is available in two sizes. The canvas also comes with an exclusive, A4 card – written and signed especially by Tom to go with the canvasses, describing his experiences of that day.
Taken at the Duxford 75th Battle of Britain Anniversary show on 19th September 2015. 15 Spitfire’s & 2 Seafire’s took the sky in a tribute to the ‘Few’, performing a big wing flypast.
This image captures 16 of the aircraft in what was an unforgettable and moving tribute. The image title resonates from something Geoffrey Wellum once said after witnessing a similar commemorative flypast – ‘I don’t consider myself an emotional person but, watching those spitfires getting airborne, I felt a lump in my throat and I had to fight for self control because their cockpits were full of ghosts; old friends. So they were friendly ghosts.’
Hobbymaster’s HA8604 model is that of Tom Neil’s beloved 249 Squadron Hurricane – V7313 (GN-F).
This diecast model comes in 1:48 scale as New, and will be hand signed by Tom.
