About the Painting:

Some of America’s first heroes of WWII, such as Colin Kelly and Harl Pease, are depicted in this scene just prior to the outbreak of war at Clark Field, Philippines. Personally signed by at least 3 great vets of this chapter of history.

Late November, 1941, Clark Field, Philippine Islands…The U.S. Army Air Corps prepares for days of infamy ahead. As P-40 aircraft take to the skies, the crews of new B-17 Fortresses of the 19th Bomb Group prepare for the day’s practice missions. Mere days after this scene, Clark Field and other nearby U.S. bases would be savaged by enemy surprise attacks. Many would be taken prisoner, and some of those shown here, such as Colin Kelly and Harl Pease, would gain tragic fame. Among this gallant group were some of the first to inspire America at war, doing so much with so little, fighting with what they had.

The painting They Fought With What They Had was
completed in 2001:

This print shows how it might have appeared if the USAF Thunderbirds had formed in 1947 when the P-51 Mustang was still king instead of a few years later during the jet era. The point of view is from the #2 position of the diamond formation as they bank over an airshow crowd.
