Fighter Pilots At Ease--two prone WWII RAF figures
Item Number: RAF088
Fighter Pilots At Ease
The ‘Battle of Britain’ is often described as the first military campaign fought entirely by air forces and it mostly took place in the skies above southern Britain during the summer and autumn of 1940. A major element in the British success was the other battle fought on the ground that allowed weary pilots to relax and rest while their Spitfires and Hurricanes were being rearmed, refueled and often repaired.
Enjoying a brief respite from operational flying, these two young pilots are stretched out on the grass enjoying the glorious summer weather. Both, however, are still wearing their ‘Mae West’ survival vests ready to leap into their aircraft and take to the skies once more.
Due to be released in AUGUST 2021.
