“The Sundowners” by Anthony Saunders
NEW RELEASE
About the Painting:
Part of a powerful pair of prints featuring the iconic McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II which was used extensively by both the USAF and USN in Vietnam.

An F-4 Phantom from VF- 111 launches from the carrier USS Coral Sea. The date was 6 March 1972 and the Phantom was NL202, call sign ‘Old Nick Two Zero One’, flown on this mission by experienced pilot Lt Garry L. Weigand and his back-seater, Radar Intercept Officer Ltjg. William C. Freckleton.

They were part of a two-ship team tasked to intercept MiGs that had just clashed with Phantoms of VF-51 on a strike force escorting a photo-reconnaissance RA-5C Vigilante over Quang Lang airfield. They found a MiG-17, and in a ‘nasty turning fight with the scrappy little plane’, Weigand manage to roll in on the MiG from the rear and in a dramatic victory, downed it with a Sidewinder.

WELCOME TO VIRGINIA BADER
FINE ARTS - THE FIRST COMPANY TO SELL AVIATION ART IN THE UNITED STATES!

For over four decades, we have had the opportunity to provide aviation art collectors and WWII history buffs with special, signed aviation prints. We represent all of the top aviation artists in the world and we know all the prints that have ever been published, so if you are looking for a print, let us help you find it. Most importantly, we have a selection of prints that were signed by pilots who fought in significant wars, like World War I, World War II, Vietnam, and Korea - many of them are no longer with us. Virginia was the first person to sell aviation art in the U.S and to sell prints actually signed by the pilots. Our experience bringing famous Aces over from Germany and Britain, allows us to bring our customers closer to their favorite pilots than they ever imagined and the good signature prints are becoming increasingly unavailable. We invite you to browse our website either by
Artist, Airplane Type or Title.
