  • 1950 Reese AFB Graduation Announcement - Class 50E

    Wonderful old-school-Air Force graduation announcement.  Blind embossed B-24 on front cover along with REESE Air Force Base.  4.5x5.5", glassine insert over test which is in fancy script, tied at spine with leather strap.  Graduation was Sep 15, 1950, 10 a.m. with a flying review at 8 a.m.  This was a much-desired flying training base at the time; must have been the advanced program in B-24s.  Near mint condition.

  • Paul Mantz - Signed Quiet Birdmen Application

    Rare one-of-a-kind application form for the Ancient and Secret Order of Quiet Birdmen, typed entries and SIGNED BY PAUL MANTZ, July 30, 1948.  Mantz was the colorful and dynamic movie stunt pilot until he died in the movie Flight of the Phoenix.  This application was obviously never filed and it is unknown if Mantz was ever a member.  The hangar designation is missing as are the sponsors names.  Mantz lists approximately 9000 hours flight time and his first solo at March Field 1927.  I can provide provenance as I acquired this document in the large collection of another southern California aviator.
