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.

  • The Vietnam War was a defining event in our lifetime. It changed the nation. I was fortunate enough to be invited to attend the 1-hour screening of the preview of Ken Burns’ epic 18-hour PBS series on the Vietnam War in D.C. last week at the Wilson Center. My reaction was – STARTLING, POWERFUL, THOUGHT-PROVOKING. The production includes a complex narrative of history, horror, humor, pride, shame, politics, combat as viewed from civilian and military......

  • I had a great time meeting General Shepperd and General McPeak at the preview of the Ken Burns and Lynn Novick documentary “The Vietnam War” in Washington, DC this week. Don Shepperd was the perfect host and General McPeak had us all laughing prior to the showing of the film. McPeak was a consultant on the documentary and provided acute insight. He is featured in several episodes. It was also a pleasure to be introduced......

  • The Super Sabre Society celebrates the official adoption of the United States of America’s new flag, on June 14, 1777. The U.S. Army also has adopted this date as its official birthday, with the establishment of the American Continental Army on June 14, 1775. We will spend a few additional seconds looking at Old Glory waving atop that pole in front of your local school or post office…that familiar flag, one our men and women......

  • Hello everyone, this week’s bios include Dick Rutan, George Buchkowski, Gary Tompkins, Dean Echenberg and Charlie Neel, it looks like a mostly Misty week. If you live in Central PA, that pretty much sums up every day for the last three months…it may be time to build an ark. Thank you to all who have been a great help in getting your bios complete, 34 in the new format are finished entirely. If your name......

  • As a Memorial Day Remembrance I am attaching a letter my dad wrote on the Battle of the Bulge in response to a question he received from one of his buddies on the Super Sabre Society group forum back in 2007. Les Leavoy was in the fighter cockpit for 34 years and saw a lot of combat. During Memorial Day each year we were always together.  Les and I would sit out back by my......

  • Today is a day for solemn remembrance.  We remember those who have died serving our country. We honor them all, all services, peace and war. But for us in the Super Sabre Society, it is personal, very personal. We remember the faces. We can hear the voices. They were our commanders, our flight leads, our wingmen, our friends. We learned from them, we taught them. We laughed with them and cried with their families. God bless......

  • A fellow F-100 fighter pilot who friends say had a smile that touched his eyes, headed west on May 20, 2017. Those who knew Paul say he wished his family and friends a fond farewell. Paul Phillips was born in Royal Oak Township, Michigan on June 11, 1932. His parents Paul Phillips and Marion Swan Phillips, immigrated from Macedonia and Scotland respectively. Paul grew up in Birmingham, Michigan, and graduated from Michigan State University with......

  • Hi everyone, I had my gallbladder out on Friday so it will be a few days until I’m back to working on the bios. However, if you have a good F-100 story send it to me at mbbarrett2020@gmail.com and as soon as I am able, I will post it to your page....

  • To our U.S. Armed Forces: thanks for what you do for all of us, our families and our country. We admire you. We watch you in action all over the world. We wish we were young again and could serve with you side by side. We are older now and have seen a lot. We understand courage and professionalism and peace and war. You make us all proud. We have never seen better than you.......
