.November 14, 1965, Ia Drang Valley, Vietnam—Amidst the low brush, elephant grass and enormous sun-baked termite mounds, clouds of dust lazily drift away from the clearing nicknamed LZ (Landing Zone) X-Ray. In preparation for an air assault by troops from the 1st Battalion, 7th Cavalry, United States artillery has been relentlessly pounding away at the perimeter of the LZ. At 10:48 the helicopter touches down, and Lt. Col. Moore, Sgt. Major Plumley, Capt. Metsker, Bob Ouellette, Al Bosse and Vietnamese translator Mr. Nik become the first boots on the ground at Ia Dran
William S. Phillips compellingly depicts the chaos of LZ X-Ray in First Boots on the Ground.
The piece is countersigned by:
Lt. Gen. Hal Moore, (Ret.)
Lt. Col. Bruce Crandall (Ret.), (MOH),
Command Master Sgt. Basil Plumley, (Ret.),

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.
