Delightful 7x9" photo of Thompson Trophy winner, Tex Johnson, taking (text says "receiving"...ha!) congratulatory kiss. Johnson flew his P-39 at 373.9 mph, setting a new record and besting Roscoe Turner's record from 1938 of 283 mph. Cleveland Bureau press release on reverse is dated 9-2-46; typical press stamps and text on back. Excellent condition. (Automatic shipping charge will be partially refunded on purchase)
