David Tipps has created these two digital images of a Continental Airlines Viscount that he saw at Clovis, New Mexico, USA in 1959 or 1960 when he was helping his grandmother board the aircraft. 'I had never seen anything quite so beautiful, and the crew were kind enough to let me have a look inside. I loved Continental's 'Proud Bird with the Golden Tail' markings and advertising'.

David created these images to present to the airport at Clovis which has not changed since the 1960s. The airport also has a great model collection of airliners and military aircraft that had flown in the area.

Please visit David Tipp's web site to see more of his aviation artwork.
