This is the Signed original Watercolour painting by Wilf Hardy.
Squadron Commander Dunning in his Sopwith Pup becomes the first man to land an aircraft on a moving ship, HMS Furious. The problem being the superstructure of the ship was still in the middle, not to one side thus the pilot had to fly alongside the ship and then "side-slip" on to the deck. The historic date was 2nd August 1917.
Original artwork from Look and Learn 12th August 1967.
