These early encounters were the start of what became a highly successful air defence campaign, and by the end of the year the seasoned fighter pilots of No 1 Fighter Wing had gained total air superiority, and had claimed over 100 victories. The Japanese withdrew and the attacks of Darwin ceased.
Robert Taylor's beautiful new painting, dedicated to the Spitfire Memorial Defence Fellowship, depicts the Mark Vc tropicalised Spitfires of No 1 Wing RAAF returning from a Scramble over the city of Darwin in early 1943. Flying in loose formation the pilots are able to admire for a few glorious moments the spectacular sunset above the coastal waters of the South Pacific.
Commemorative prints from this specially publishededition are signed by distinguished Australian fighter pilots who flew both in Europe and in defence of Australia during World War 2.
