Sentinel Sculpture (Spitfire Memorial)

Sentinel is a 16-metre-high (52 ft) sculpture by Tim Tolkien, installed upon Spitfire Island, a roundabout at the intersection of the Chester Road and the A47 Fort Parkway at the entrance to the Castle Vale estate in Birmingham, England.

It is located near the former Castle Bromwich aircraft factory where most of the wartime Spitfires were built. The memorial pays homage to the history of the planes with a trio of half-scale models, peeling off into the air in different directions.
