Czech Hurricane - Artwork
English Channel, England / 2 September 1940

None of the Allied airmen in the Battle of Britain wanted to fly with Czech pilot Sgt. Josef Frantisek DFM. Simply put, he was a renegade who “fought his own war” and was a danger to anyone flying in his formation.

Because of this, the RAF and No. 303 Polish Squadron only allowed him to fly as a “guest” in a “spare” Hawker Hurricane.

In this composition, Sgt. Frantisek had already left his colleagues shortly after takeoff and was on a solo mission to make his first kill of the war near the coast of Dover: a Messerschmitt Bf 109E-4 piloted by Lt. Detlev Rohwer. The German plane escaped the attack, but eventually crash-landed in the English Channel. Later in the day, Sgt. Frantisek would get his first actual kill—a different pilot in the same model plane, a Bf 109.

In the following five weeks, Sgt. Frantisek would add 16 more German planes to his kill list, making him one of the top aces of the Battle of Britain.
His streak came to a tragic end on 8 October 1940 when he crashed during landing in Ewell, Surrey. Legend has it that he was trying to impress his girlfriend with an acrobatic approach when it happened. True or not, it’s true to his story—the story of a man who lived like a tempest and died in a Hurricane.

behind the scene

How it's done

Every image we create is based on a real-life historical event, so to assure accuracy, we put in long hours of research to piece together every little detail.

Once the concept is established, we set to work creating a 3D model using CGI. Studying every piece of reference material available, our artists essentially build a car from scratch, slowly constructing layer upon layer of detail – even down to the correct number of coats of paint.

Watch making of process

Unique & Limited

This is one of our signature line of fine art prints, named as such because it’s created with our Unique methods and is strictly Limited to a specific number. Your print will show its unique production number and the total number of examples produced.

Framing

Framing is not included in the price because we’ve designed the print to be of a standard size so you can get them framed anywhere, but if you’d like us to take care of this for you we’ve provided options for several frame designs.

Packaging & Delivery

Our prints and posters are rolled up in a robust protective tube to ensure their safe delivery to you – wherever you are in the world. Additional gift-wrapping options are available at the checkout.
