Andre Venter is an aviation photographer, whose work I really admire. I asked him if I have permission to paint his photographs, especially the Harvards and I immediately got a positive response plus “megaloads” of photographs to chose from. Thanks Andre!

#2 - Arnie Meneghelli; #3 - Ellis Levin; and #4 Sean Thackwray, and have been in operation for more than 14 years.

Sean was in the South African Air Force with me and is also an artist when he is not flying. When I left the SAAF, I was presented with a farewell present, which was a painting of a Cheetah E, painted by Sean. It is still hanging in my office and reminds me of the good flying days I had and people I worked with. Thanks Sean!

The explosion critically damaged the spacecraft and its ability to sustain human life. Over the next 3 days, Jim Lovell, Fred Haise and Jack Swigert, with support from NASA on the ground, fought to bring their spacecraft home. When Apollo 13 splashed down on April 17 with the three crew worn and weary but very much alive, it was the end to one of the most inc... Read More
