This painting by an artist unknown to me is a very striking image of a Casevac operation carried out by a Rhodesian Air Force G Car circa 1975-6 and reminds me of a similar casevac/body pick up we did in Mabalahuta of an Engineer who was killed by a ploughshare mine he was laying in that area. I had a most frightening experience with this casevac which still haunts me to thid day and is recorded in my book.
Can anyone give me details of the artist as I would like to get permission to post in my book Choppertech.
