Story Behind the Scene. Chris French
Acclaimed aviation artist Chris French explains the origins of his latest artwork: a sun-bathed Handley Page Hastings of a little-known unit
This painting was commissioned for an ex-crew member of Handley Page Hastings TG560, Flt Lt Robert ‘Bob’ Jones. He had a long career in the RAF, joining in 1947 and later serving on Victor tankers, which included involvement in the Falklands conflict. He eventually retired in 1993.
