In "No Flying Today" a B-17G of the 390th Bomb Group, 569th Bomb Squadron sits
peacefully in a blanket of snow at its home base of Framlingham, England.

In "No Flying Today," a B17G of the 390th Bomb Group 569th Bomb Squadron sits peacefully under a blanket of snow at its home base in Framlingham, England. As happened on many occasions during World War II, a cold moist air mass has moved south from the Arctic, covering both England and the Continent in heavy clouds and snow. On this day there would be no flying. Symbolic of this naturally induced lull in warfare are a goshawk, sitting ruffled against the chill wind and its would-be prey, a small rabbit hidden among the rocks of the stone wall.

The B-17G portrayed here was the most widely produced of B-17 variants. Its first test flight was on May 21, 1943, and it was delivered for action less than four months later. Powered by a Wright R-1820-97 cyclone engine, the B-17G had a top speed of 302 m.p.h. The Bomber was flown primarily by Americans and carried a crew of ten. There are still a few B17-Gs flying today . . . in clear, snowless skies. Nobody paints snow like Bill - and I love this print - if you look carefully you will
see a little rabbit hidden in a hole - hope the Hawk does not see him!!

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.
