The museum is teaming up with the Guild of Aviation Artists to give the museum’s Jet Provost a unique new paint scheme. Normally known for their fine paintings depicting aircraft and other aviation themes, on Saturday May 23rd members of the Guild will be coming to the Museum to put the Jet Provost into a new livery.
Members of the Guild have been coming to the Museum for a few years now to sketch, draw and paint aircraft from the collection. For 2015 it was decided to do something a bit different, and the Guild was asked to come up with proposals for a new paint scheme for one of the museum’s aircraft. The chosen scheme will make a radical departure from the usual service livery in which aircraft are normally displayed!
Come along on the 23rd to see the artists in action. There may even be a few spare paintbrushes if you want to try your hand at aviation art yourself. You can also see examples of the artwork from members of the Guild on display in the Museum shop where they are available for purchase.
It is planned to display the Jet Provost in its new paint scheme for two to three years before returning it to a more traditional service livery.
