Featured RAF and Civil Aircraft.
[The Aircraft that never was: Sketch by Joe Bosher.]
This is a section of The Spirit of the 74th Website devoted to sketches of the many aircraft that ex-Brats may have encountered during their RAF service or Civil aviation careers. With a few added notes and hypertext links. Some we hated and some we loved. If you have any stories of your own (or pictures) you would like to share with other ex-Brats or other visitors to the Website please contact me, in the first instance using the secure Feedback Form.
Hopefully this is just the beginning so please let me know if I've missed your favourite. Select from the following blue underlined links :

When You Were a Kid You Liked to Draw - Right?
So what happened? Why not try drawing some of your own pictures? Good therapy. Guaranteed! Most of my own sketches are made using a Derwent Sketching Pencil HB (hard and black) and with a blunt point (which seems a bit contradictory). Just stick up a suitable photograph on a vertical board and using a cheap sketchbook do a freehand sketch of what you see. Concentrate on the shapes (not dimensions) and draw quickly. This is what sketching is all about. I bet you'll like it. Hope you like my own sketches of aircraft.
