The collection of aircraft depicted in this book celebrates 50 years of painting by Frank Wootton, who has work hanging in private and public collections worldwide, including the Imperial War Museum in London and the National Air and Space Museum in Washington. Wootton matured as a painter during the frantic years of World War II, when he travelled the world as an official war artist to the Royal Air Force. In 1944 he joined the Allied forces advancing in Europe, through newly-liberated France and into Belgium, painting the events and aircraft around him. Some months later he was moved to South-East Asia, where he experienced the final stages of the war with Japan. There he painted many works of life in the tropics - a world of sandstorms, intense heat and monsoon rains. His subjects included the routines of daily life, alongside images of pilots and their aircraft at war. This collection encompasses the range of Frank Wootton's aviation art from those early years through to the present day, including his impressions of Concorde and modern fighter planes.
