  • B-17 Crew Artifact - circa 1945

    SKU: 21-UN-17

     Large vintage (irregular 12"W x 8"H) hand-painted "patch" on canvas of B-17 Umbriago, showing the B-17 with bombs below and 8 targets around the edge in red text.  About the size to have been sewn to the back of an A-2 jacket.  Some remnants of paper pasted to the reverse as though it was once in an album.  Included is a 8.5x7" paper illustration of the B-17 with the crew in caricature along with their nicknames.  About good-very good.  Deserves to be researched further.

  • Rare British Poster - 1915

    SKU: 21-POST-53

     "PUBLIC WARNING" poster printed by Sir Joseph Causton, London, as authorized by Her Majesty's Stationery Office, 1915.  This poster was found occasionally 40 years ago but has become quite scarce today.  This is only the third one I have had and one is in my collection.  This poster is about very good, overall age toning, one horizontal fold and a small rub in lower right margin.  Really a "must" in the WWI aero collector's "cave".

  • Hughes Heavy Lift Concept Helicopter Poster - circa 1960's

    SKU: 21-POST-52

     Large 23x18" color poster showing artist concepts of heavy lift helicopters for both the US Navy and Marine Corp.  This is a typical item produced in small numbers at a time the company was trying to sell the military on a new concept. Not surprising that it resembles the Sikorsky Sky Crane.  Text at the bottom of the poster reads: "Hughes Reaction Drive/Heavy Lift Helicopter System; Hughes Tool Company/Aircraft Division; Culver City, California".  Excellent in a frame of slightly larger size.  Will ship rolled in a tube or for extra postage in the frame.
