The artist explains the story behind this work: 'On 16th May 1931, some forty visiting aircraft flew into Reading Aerodrome for the official opening of Reading Aero Club’s new clubhouse. As part of an afternoon flying programme, a Ladies’ Handicap Race was held over a triangular course of approximately 10 miles, starting and finishing at the airfield, with the spire of St Paul’s Church in Wokingham and Twyford Railway Station acting as ‘marker beacons’.
