Concorde Bomber Formation

BAC Concorde bomber 2

A flight of Concorde bombers over the English countryside in 1987

For the past four years I have been heavily involved in a project called The Empire’s Twilight which is an alternate history project started by a mate of mine named Tim Morley. Tim was looking for a backstory to his many “What if” models and together along with a few others we hammered out an entire alternate history where the British Empire survived World War II under the guise of the New Commonwealth and was essentially a third party in the Cold War. This ultimately leads to a nuclear war in 1991.

This was a follow up to the previous Concorde Bomber image. I wanted to create an image with more than one Concorde bomber so I took a picture of one of Tim’s Concorde bomber models and made four copies. With each of them I played around with the tones and scaling to give the impression they were different aircraft. I then blended them in to an aerial image and dirtied it up to give a sense of age.

If you would like to know more about The Empire’s Twilight you can check out the Facebook page or read the Wikia.
