RONDOT - ARCTIC WARRIOR
airbase, over 150 miles North of the Arctic circle in the
far North of Norway, was for twenty years the deployment base
for No.41(F) Squadron Jaguars. Flying in the ground attack
and reconnaissance roles, the former Battle of Britain Squadron
were Arctic operations specialists in a region noted for its
dangerous winter weather and extreme flying conditions.
beautiful new painting brought to you from www.avcollect.com
portrays a Jaguar GR3, carrying Vinten JRP reconnaissance
pod, in action during NATO exercises in the rugged and inhospitable
area where military pilots enjoy some of the most challenging
flying in the world.
Rondot has drawn on his own experiences of low flying in north
Norway to create a stunning painting dominated by the camoflaged
Jaguar and dramatically illustrating the bleak terrain and
atmosphere of an Arctic Warrior!
in a very restricted limited edition, "Arctic Warrior"
is a fine tribute to the Cold War years for collectors of
military aviation art!
