This is the Signed original Watercolour painting by Wilf Hardy.

On the 9th June 1968 Dr. Brennig James became the first man to fly the 500Km triangle in the UK. The route he took is shown on the map below: Booker to Long Mynd to Cranwell and back.
According to the international rules of the competition, photographs have to be taken at each point of the triangle as proof. The glider or sailplane he used was a Swiss built Diamant 18.
The original artwork was first published in Look and Learn 364 4 January 1969.
