This is the original Gouache painting by Wilf Hardy.

In June 1919 two young Air force pilots became the first men to fly across the Atlantic when their Vickers Vimy converted bomber made the journey from Newfoundland to Ireland in a little under 16 hours.

Hardy's bold brush strokes create a real sense of urgency and danger as the men and their small aircraft race against the weather and the waves. This stunning piece has a small part of a 'Speed and Power' sticker to the top left of the page, as this was sent to publication for the Speed and Power supplement of Look and Learn magazine.

Original artwork for illustration on pp20-21 of Look and Learn issue no 750 (29 May 1976).
