Wings Over the World - Polar Pioneers (Original)

Wings Over the World - Polar Pioneers (Original) by Air (Wilf Hardy) at The Illustration Art Gallery

Ref: HardyWSASLL (Click for LARGE picture)

Artist: Wilf Hardy (biography)
Medium: Watercolour on Board
Size: 17" x 13" (420mm x 330mm)
Date: 1969

This is the original Watercolour painting by Wilf Hardy.

The top picture shows the Guttorm Viking, one of the Scandinavian DC-7Cs which inaugurated the trans-polar routes. The line drawing shows cocktails being served aboard a BOAC Boeing Stratocruiser (left.)

(A) is a Saunders Roe Princess Flying Boat and (B) Bristol Brabazon which helped revolutionise modern design without going into service though prototypes were built.

The BOAC airplane at the bottom is a Bristol Britannia, nicknamed the Whispering Giant, because of it was relatively quiet for passengers. Only 85 were built as jet power was becoming the norm for longer flights by 1960.

From Look and Learn 386 (7 June 1969).
