I love this painting, as ever from Gil an original subject, great composition and detail. Having read the books of the British ATA women "Spitfire Women of WWII" read the exploits of Jackie Cochran and others, this captures the scene so well.            I was going to make sexist comments about the map reading.....but my wife advised me not too
Nice image. Atmospheric.        But I find the poses a bit awkward and contrived, and not as natural as they could have been, compared to other Cohen paintings. Just my opinion
I have been a pilot for more than 30 years and have never seen any pilot spread a sectional out on the ground. They contain a lot of detail that could not be seen by anyone in this print other than the pilot pointing at it. Additionally when WASPs flew fighters they were almost always single a/c. It is almost certain that five WASPS would never have been flying a P-38 lightning on the same day.
