Take advantage of the rare opportunity to own commemorative artwork signed by two pioneers of Cold War aviation development!

Stan Stokes. Reversing the trend of developing slow and ever-larger bombers, the B-58 — the world's first supersonic bomber, introduced in 1960 — was designed to outrun possible Soviet opposition at very high altitudes. It was also unique in that it did not feature a bomb bay; its armaments were carried on an external pod, including up to five nuclear weapons. This print depicts a B-58A, based at Elmendorf Air Force Base in Alaska, going through its radar-beating paces in the mid-1960s. It comes signed by the artist and two of the aircraft's principal developers: William Dietz and Robert Widmer. 16"x 11½".
