  • Signed Print - Russian Korean War Ace Yevgeny Pepelyayev

    SKU: 19-POST-5

    Large color print by well-known artist John Ficklen, signed by him and Russian Ace Yevgeny Pepelyayev.  Ficklin shows Pepelyayev's favorite MIG-15 number 325 in profile; Pepelyayev is credited with 19 victories over US pilots in Korea.  He was awarded the "Golden Star Hero of the Soviet Union"; their highest military honor.  Below Ficklen's signature the print is numbered "AP 21/50", assumed to be an artist's proof, print number 21 of a run of 50.  The image size is 18 x 14" which is archivally matted to 23 x 19".  A note with the print indicates it was sponsored by the USAF Air Command and Staff Foundation, Maxwell AFB, AL.  The USAF ACSC is well known for their sponsoring of the wonderful Gather of Eagles prints signed by famous aviators and astronauts.  This print is mint and encased in shrinkwrap.  A lovely signed print in a very small run.
