Out East
Sunderland of 88 Sqn 1949 at Direction Island, Cocos Keeling Islands, refuelling from a Matadore aboard a landing craft.
Don't know if the A/C was ever there, but it was based at Hong Kong, so there's a good chance it was.
W/C 10 X 6 inches

That's a novel way of getting the tanker out there !

Here is the pic that inspired the painting, found it while looking for something else.
Not the flippers of scuba diver DI ing the engine.

Thanks jonc50. Just the type of thing I like doing.
I won't be posting as much, I'm taking a break for the summer.

That engine fitter certainly believes in getting stuck into his work!
Never realised the exhaust fins were like that - most unusual.
