L-R: Paul Beaver, FRAeS; Lt. Brian (Smoo) Ellis RN and Black Leader.
Black Star were delighted to be introduced to Lt. Brian (Smoo) Ellis RN at the recent 'Fly Navy' airshow at the Shuttleworth Collection.
A former Sea Fury pilot with 802 Naval Air Squadron Smoo was involved in the action of August 9th, 1952 during the Korean war. A flight of Sea Furys from HMS Ocean downed one and probably two jet powered MiG 15s.
Black Star presented Smoo with one of our latest t-shirts - a MiG 15 and gained inspiration and some new ideas for some future design themes.
