Featuring a genuine piece of fuselage from a Spitfire MkVb

This superb Fine Art Print depicts the first ever flight of the magnificent Supermarine Spitfire.

To preserve the memory of this legendary machine and to honour everything that it has done for our nation, particularly its vital role in securing the freedom of the British people in the Battle of Britain - you now have an opportunity to become one of only a few privileged owners of a superb work of art.

Signed by the artist and limited to just 1,936 worldwide

First Flight is the original artwork of world renowned aviation artist John Batchelor. Arguably the world's foremost technical illustrator, he is particularly known for his clear and detailed illustrations and First Flight is no exception.

Exclusively commissioned for The Westminster Collection, this stirring print captures the landmark moment on 5th March 1936, at Eastleigh Airfield that the Spitfire took to the skies for the very first time - the First Flight of K5054, Supermarine Type 300.

Limited to just 1,936, each print will be personally signed and numbered for you by John Batchelor then individually hand mounted and professionally framed.

Own your very own piece of Spitfire

To provide a lasting testament to R.J Mitchell and his innovative creation, this limited edition presentation also features a special unique addition - a genuine piece of Spitfire. A fragment from the fuselage of a Spitfire MKVb has been expertly cut into the silhouette of the aircraft and mounted on to each print.
