When taking his Hurricane off from Speke, a raiding Ju88 crossed the airfield in front of Denys Gillam, who promptly shot it down. It was the fastest air victory of the war, and probably of all time. Robert Taylor's painting shows Gillam's Hurricane, guns blazing while undercarriage is still retracting. A remarkable event, vividly portrayed, and signed by the pilot.
