This painting depicts P-51D Mustangs "Big Beautiful Doll" and "Ferocious Frankie" escorting B-17G Flying Fortress (G-BEDF) better known as"‘Sally-B" or "Memphis Belle" over historic Duxford during the Flying Legends display of 2011.
Later the same day, at the end of a mass fly-past, "Big Beautiful Doll" suffered a mid-air collision with a Skyraider. The Skyraider landed, minus a large piece of wing, but the Mustang crashed near the airfield, her pilot parachuting to safety.
