Inspired by a grainy video this painting depicts the moment that BAC test-pilot Tim Ferguson dropped his pre-production Jaguar onto a newly-built stretch of the M55 motorway near Blackpool to demonstrate the aircraft’s rough field capabilities.
The aircraft was fitted with a 1,200-litre centre-line fuel tank for the landing and was then ‘bombed up’ before taking off to demonstrate a full tactical weapons load.
