Coincidentally, I have one of the “Hurricane Art” special editions of 30 too.  Got it ages ago from the UK.  Sunny, the difference is that it has 5 extra signatures in addition to the Eric Knightley signature that came on the print.

Simon,

First off – your photography is excellent.  These images perfectly reflect how the prints look in person.  If only my photos were this good!

Great to see all these sets with the companion prints.  I’ll be there are many who haven’t seen them before.  “Home at Dusk” is my favorite print, and the “Mustangs Over Bremen” companion is very cool.  I like Mustangs in RAF camo.

The “Eagle Squadron” pencil print is one of my favorite RT drawings.  Great scene expertly drawn.

“Return to the Crow’s Nest” is a rare one.  Wasn’t that published by Tamsen Munger?  One of the few RT images not published by Military Gallery.

The “Struggle For Supremacy” signed by Yeager is perfection.  I got mine signed at the National Air & Space Museum in DC.  Chuck used to give a talk there every October near the anniversary of his X-1 flight.  Unfortunately, he stopped doing that about 10 years ago.  He always charges for signatures these days, and I am told he will only personalize the signature.  When I first started collecting, he was at a symposium in Kentucky, and he signed “Home at Dusk” and “Home Run” for me.  Aces Robin Olds, “Pete” Peterson, “Herky” Green & Bob Goebel were there too.  Those were the days! 

Kurt

Climbing Out & Crewing Up – how long ago were those published, and who published them?  Don’t see those very often.
