About The Author
-

Leicestershire-based father of two Chris Sandham-Bailey comes from a family with strong ties to aviation and grew up in Somerset to the sound of Sea Harriers from Yeovilton (an aircraft he still has a passion for). An artist from an early age he has a degree in Art/History of Art, combining these two to produce several thousand profiles over the last decade for books and magazines along with commissions for the Luftwaffe and RAF. He has covered all aspects of aviation from the pre-war years to the latest, both civilian and military. When time allows he has also authored the text for articles and books. He claims his job is ‘just colouring in aircraft’ but this belies the huge amount of research and effort he puts into every one of his detailed and accurate designs.
