Apprentice engineers at the RAF's No. I School of Technical Training, Cosford. This painting resulted from my visit to Cosford with the Guild of Aviation Artists in January 2018 where I took photos and did preparatory sketches.
Exhibited at the 'Aviation Paintings of the Year' 2018 exhibition, it won the RAF Museum prize for the best work depicting an RAF subject from the last 30 years.
