Heading Home - BOAC 314 Clipper by Stephen Brown - Cameo Oil Painting

A British Overseas Airways Corporation Boeing 314 Clipper over Shannon Estuary in Ireland returning after a long flight across the Atlantic in the winter of 1945.

The Boeing 314 Clipper was an American long-range flying boat produced between 1938 and 1941. One of the largest aircraft of its time, it had the range to cross the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. A rare aircraft, only twelve were made and BOAC acquired three of them. The outbreak of World War two curtailed a lot of civilian passenger activity but they were all kept busy with long distance flights, many of which involved military personnel. The most famous of these involved British Prime Minister Winston Churchill whole flew 3500 miles back from Bermuda in January 1942 aboard the BOAC 314 Clipper 'Berwick'.

The painting shows BOAC 314 Clipper 'Bristol' G-AGBZ, the only one of the three BOAC 314s that had its wartime camouflage removed to reveal the natural metal finish that was originally intended.

Sadly no examples of this magnificent aircraft remain, although there is a full scale replica of the fuselage at Foynes Flying Boat and Maritime Museum in Shannon.
