This is the Signed original Watercolour painting by Wilf Hardy.

A McDonnell Douglas 188 STOL or Short Take Off and Landing approaches the runway. In the late 1960s there was a move to improve airport efficiency by using STOL aircraft in the USA.

The two airlines involved in the trials were American (in who's colours the 'plane is shown in this painting) and Eastern. Although the aircraft was very safe at slow speeds and steep descents it obviously wasn't too popular with the passengers.

From Look and Learn #423 21 February 1970.
