"THE CLIPPED SPIT" - by Charles Thompson

Commissioned by a friend of the Shuttleworth Collection who donated it to this wonderful aviation flying and restoration museum, this 24” x 36” oil on canvas painting depicts the Spitfire Vc owned and flown by the Collection. At the time I did the painting, the aircraft had retained its ‘clipped’ wings which have now been replaced by the more ‘normal’ tips.
