Michael Rondot's spectacularly detailed painting shows a British Army Gazelle helicopter in action during a live firepower demonstration on Warminster Ranges, Salisbury Plain. Acting as airborne forward air controller, the Gazelle pilot is guiding rocket-firing RAF Harriers in close air support while hovering above a Challenger II tank moving into its firing position. In the background, the rolling Wiltshire hills and distinctive-shaped woods of Salisbury Plain provide a panoramic backdrop that will be familiar to all who wear the Army Flying Badge.
