“PHANTOM SHOWTIME" by Robert Taylor
Only one of the limited edition print left!
"Irish and I came into the break smoking at 500 knots, below the level of the flight deck. I could see thousands of men watching from the catwalks. I made a six-G break turn with 90 degree angle of bank. We landed after one of my best passes of the cruise." Commander Randy 'Duke' Cunningham.
Back on deck, first to shake the hands of Lt.Randy Cunningham and his Radar Intercept Officer, Lt (jg) Willie 'Irish' Driscoll, was ordnancement Willie White: "Mr. Cunningham, we got our MiG today, didn't we!" It was January 19, 1972 aboard the USS Constellation in the Gulf of Tonkin.
As Cunningham shut down the engines of his 'Fighting Falcons' F-4J Phantom, Task Force 77 Commander Admiral Cooper congratulated Cunningham and Driscoll on achieving their first of five air victories They went on to become the US Navy's only Aces of the Vietnam war.

WELCOME TO VIRGINIA BADER
FINE ARTS - THE FIRST COMPANY TO SELL
AVIATION ART IN THE UNITED STATES!
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.
If you are in the California area, come visit our gallery on John Wayne Airport in Orange County, where we have many fantastic framed and unframed art prints on display.
