Aviation Art Phantom, Hijack Escort

Here is this weeks piece of aviation digital art of a Phantom FG1 of 43 squadron. I used the phantom that I did last week, re-armed it, adjusted the colours a bit and st it in the air. I call this one ‘Hijack Escort’.

This art work shows a pair FG1 Phantoms from the RAF 43 Squadron escorting a hijacked aircraft. In the 1970’s this squadron while on QRA duties were involved in escorting aircraft with difficulties like this.

I started with the original idea of them escorting a Russian ‘Bear’ reconnaissance aircraft. Lots of aviation art shows a Phantom doing this, so I tried to find something different.
