Limited Edition F-100 Aviation Art Print
– signed and numbered by Keith Ferris

The prints will show the F-100D “440” taking off at twilight on January 31, 1968, the first day of the Tet Offensive. The draft “oil study” is a pale shadow of the final oil painting and lithographs. The aircraft markings on the finished painting and Litho’s will be historically accurate. Overall print size is 20”H by 30”W. This is a Signed and Numbered Edition limited to 300 prints, offered to members of the Super Sabre Society at $250 each plus $15 S&H. All documentation for future provenance is included. Print condition is excellent, never framed and printed with high-quality ink on acid-free materials.
