YEAGER and XS-1

Perhaps the most popular of the artist's pieces, this one contains a hand colored lithograph of pilot Chuck Yeager and the Bell XS-1.

Below is a first day issue piece of mail that was cancelled on Oct. 14, 1997 at Edwards Air Force Base, California, 50 years after Yeager became the first pilot to break the sound barrier in level flight.

Signed by Yeager, the mail was flown in an F-15, with Yeager as pilot, and the sound barrier broken once again.

This wonderful piece is double matted with acid free mat boards. Front and back. Ultraviolet light proof plexiglass is used to prevent fading and prevent damage should the piece ever fall. It will not break or damage during shipping.

Black anodized metal framing is used for strength and to prevent chipping.

Personally designed and custom framed by our framer, who has over 30 years of experience, which means the mat cuts are to the point and do not run past each other and the frame corners meet where they should.
