Phantom of Stanley Poster A3, sketched in Pencil.
After the war, the Royal Air Force took over the Airport, renaming it RAF Stanley. The runway was extended and arrester equipment installed to allow RAF F4 Phantom fighters of 23 Sqn to be based on the Island as air defence. In addition long range Hercules transport aircraft were able to land supplies and personnel from the United Kingdom via Ascension Island.

Barry also created a over 150 computer designed images of aircraft, with details of the individual aircraft portrayed.
