Waking Up Carna Ridge

At the 2014 Annual Reunion Dinner, the Guest of Honour, Neil Meadows (who is an avid aviation art collector) brought along some artwork to illustrate the Chapter tables. For the Meteor table, he selected ‘Waking Up Carna Ridge’ – an original oil by Neil Foggo. Mike Bradley immediately recognised the subject aircraft ‘Q Queenie’ as his own trusty steed during his time on 208 Squadron between 1954 and 1957. Pictured here are Neil and Mike with the painting after the dinner. Click HERE to view the painting in the Website Aviation Art Gallery.
