      Every Apollo mission consisted of a three man crew; the command module pilot, the lunar module pilot and the commander. For those missions when the lunar module separated from the command module, the command module pilot stayed behind to man the command module alone. For the lunar landing missions the two men who landed got most of the attention but the command module pilot was necessary to keep watch and pilot the ship as well as perform important scientific work and observations from orbit....

        It is believed the only remaining intact lunar module from the Apollo missions is "Snoopy" of Apollo 10. With astronauts Thomas Stafford and Eugene Cernan at the controls, Snoopy was tested in lunar orbit flying within 50,000 feet of the surface. After separating from the descent stage, the ascent stage of the lunar module was flown back to John Young in the command module, "Charlie Brown", in lunar orbit. Snoopy was jettisoned into space with subsequent firing of the ascent stage engine to...

            On February 20, 1962 astronaut John Glenn became the first American to orbit the Earth in Mercury Spacecraft Friendship 7. At one point during the flight, John Glenn described some mysterious illuminated particles traveling in the company of his spacecraft. As the spacecraft flew over Australia, he saw thousands of little illuminated particles, floating around outside the capsule. He momentarily felt the illusion that the spacecraft was tumbling or that he was actually viewing a star field....

                The Apollo Lunar Module (LM) was the first true spacecraft designed to carry men and operate solely in space. An engineering masterpiece, the craft had to withstand the rigors of launch atop the Saturn V rocket yet be as lightweight as possible. Docked with the Command Module/Service Module (SCM), the craft had to make the roughly 238,000 journey to the moon. Once in lunar orbit, the craft made the descent to the lunar surface with two men braking from initial speed over 3,000 MPH to a...

                  Whether one believes in such things or not, the Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) has been considered serious enough to scramble fighter planes in defense of American air space on more than just a few occasions in the 1950s and 1960s. In fact, it even occurs in modern times. In this depiction an F-84F Thunderstreak fighter jet of the Ohio National Guard, after being scrambled, catches up with the bogie which was earlier spotted on radar. The pilot will have one heck of a tale to tell. This...

                    The F-100 Super Sabre was the world's first production aircraft capable of exceeding the speed of sound in level flight. The F-100C model was first adopted by the USAF Thunderbirds in 1956 becoming the world�s first supersonic aerial demonstration team. The Thundebirds flew 6 shows with the F-105B Thunderchief in 1964 but transitioned to the F-100D Super Sabre after an unfortunate accident. The F-100D was used until 1969. I have long wanted to paint the Thunderbird's Super Sabres. My print...

                          On April 18, 1942 sixteen B-25B Mitchell bombers launched from the aircraft carrier USS Hornet in a surprise attack on the Japanese mainland. Initially the bombers flew in groups of 2 to 4 but then flew singly at wave top level to avoid detection. The aircraft began arriving about noon over Tokyo and dropped special incendiary bombs. Although the raid caused little damage it achieved success in bringing the war to the Japanese home islands and boosted American morale after the devastating...

The Panther served extensively during the Korean War with both the Navy and the US Marines. Although it was outclassed by the more advanced, swept-wing MiG 15, the Panther held its own until the F-86 Sabre entered the war with the US Air Force. F9F Panthers shot down a total of seven MiG 15 fighters during the war. This print depicts the first Navy jet vs jet kill on November 9, 1950.

The VC10 was loved by crew and passengers alike. The VC10 was one of the fastest subsonic airliners. As of 2018, a Vickers Super VC10 still holds the trans-Atlantic speed record for a...

                                  The F8F Bearcat featured a light airframe and powerful engine. This combination gave the Bearcat incredible speed and climb rate. Bearcats were on carriers entering the Pacific when WWII ended so the airplane did not see combat during the war. Surviving Bearcats have long been a favorite on the racing circuit. As of 2018, a modified Bearcat, "Rare Bear" holds the speed record (528.33 mph) for the fastest piston powered airplane; a record which was set in 1989.
