Steve Depicted the Lincoln flying over the RAF Museum Cosford which can be seen through a break in the cloud below the graceful and yet powerful aircraft.

The Lincoln Bomber was heavily based on the Lancaster Bomber made famous by its roll during World War 2 as the famous aircraft of the "Dam Busters". The Beautiful and rare example of the Lincoln in the painting is now on display for all to enjoy at the RAF Museum Cosford, and requires continuous on going maintenance. It has just undergone another round of preservation to bring it back to its former Glory.
