A Hornet on the tarmac. Peter Churcher recalled, "I just wanted to do a painting of a Hornet. It was very hot on the flight path during the day and so I had to work at night. There is evidence of the mechanics in the background that are maintaining the plane. In the background are American B-52s taking off".
