This artwork depicts the F-100 Super Sabre of Colonel Ray Kleber as he taxis in after a mission over Vietnam. The Colonel was squadron commander of the 612th Tactical fighter squadron while stationed at Phu Cat airbase in South Vietnam. During his time in Vietnam he was awarded both the Distinguished Flying Cross and Bronze Star. At 90 years old the Colonel is still an active pilot, flying both light powered aircraft and sailplanes. This work was commissioned as a gift for his 90th birthday celebration.
11 x 14 Colored pencil on Strathmore illustration board.
