The Handover

F-35B and Tornado GR4 over RAF Marham

This painting was commissioned by RAF Marham to mark the 'handover' as the Tornado force winds down and the F-35B Lightning force ramps up. The Tornado carries the markings of the two resident squadrons - 9(B) and 31, both operational when the first F-35Bs arrived. Visible below is the refurbished runway 01/19, new Maintenance and Finishing Facility, Logistics Operations Centre and vertical landing pads under construction. Oil on canvas.

Original owned by the RAF

The painting was officially presented at a 'Dining In' night on 15th November 2018 at RAF Marham Officers' Mess. Base Commander, Group Captain Ian Townsend receives the painting from Chris.
