“WASP Special Delivery”

24 April 1943: The first class of the Women’s Airforce Service Pilots, Class 43-1, graduated from the four-month flight training program and earned their wings as U.S. Army pilots. The class entered with 38 trainees and 24 graduated. Each woman had a civil pilot’s license and at least 200 hours of flight time. Over 25,000 women applied and approximately 1,900 were accepted. By the end of the war, 1,074 had graduated.

THANK YOU all of our wonderful customers
who visited us at Sun N Fun.
We had an awesome show and hope to see you all at AIRVENTURE 2018!


For over three 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.

Almost Home By Robert Taylor
"…night after night, month after month, our bomber squadrons travel far into Germany, find their targets, often under the heaviest fire, often with serious loss, with deliberate, careful discrimination, and inflict shattering blows upon the whole of the technical and war-making structure of the Nazi power. On no part of the Royal Air Force does the weight of the war fall more heavily than on the daylight bombers…"
