Corporate Prelude by Philip West


Corporate Prelude by Philip West features Vulcan XM607 during the Falklands War.

The Falklands conflict led to the Vulcan being used for the first time in anger in 25 years of RAF service. 44, 50 and 101 Squadron aircraft were involved in 'Operation Corporate' with five crews selected, two from 50 Squadron one each from 44 Squadron and 101 Squadron, plus others from previously disbanded 9 Squadron.

This beautiful painting portrays the mighty XM607 at altitude during the work up period prior to active operations. During the Falklands War XM607, piloted by Martin Withers, flew there and back from the Ascension Islands non-stop, covering a staggering 7,500 miles; the flight lasted 15 hours 45 minutes, which at the time was the longest combat flight in history. The Vulcan was refuelled by Victor tankers five times on the outward journey and once on the return journey.

Corporate Prelude is individually signed and numbered by the artist.

Lysanders of 161 Special Operations Squadron turn onto their final course to a clandestine landing field somewhere in central occupied France, during a full moon period in 1943.  Based at Tempsford, Bedfordshire and often operating from Tangmere to shorten the flight, the pilots flew a dead reckoning course to their first turning point, usually on the River Loire, using rudimentary navigating equipment.  The moonlit town of Blois is easily distinguishable by its chateau, churches and bridge with the Forest of Chambord beyond.  The agents in the rear cockpit prepare themselves by torchlight for the forthcoming landing.  Each print in Philip West's Limited Edition, Loire Rendevouz, is signed by four highly distinguished Lysander pilots: Flt. Lt Peter Arkell, OBE, USAF Medal of Distinction Flt Lt. Murray Anderson, DFC*, US Air Medal Flt. Lt. R G 'Bob' Large, DFC, Legion d'honneur Sir Lewis Hodges, KCB, CBE, DSO, DFC.Subject: Special Operations Westland Lysander.
