Stan Stokes. This spectacular P-38 nighttime ground attack scene depicts a mission flown in early 1945 by three 18th FG pilots, Milt Adams, Joe Gunder, and Bill Harris who was the highest-scoring ace of the Thirteenth Air Force. The Japanese forces in the Philippines had started moving truck convoys at night to avoid strafing attacks. They underestimated the ingenuity of the 18th FG pilots who volunteered to make dangerous moon-light strafing raids. Moonlighting is Co-Signed by the top 13th Air Force Ace Col. Bill Harris & Maj. Gen. Milton Adams. A blank signature line is included for the late Capt. Joe Gunder, who was killed-in-action on this mission. 22"x 18" limited edition print is signed and numbered by the artist.

Tony Weddel. The Rufe was born out of the Japanese Navy's need for a single-seat fighter that could be used primarily from military installations on small Pacific Islands, where it was impossible to build landing fields. Except for the addition of floats and some minor structural changes, it was almost identical to the Zero in design and performance. Here, Rufes defend Japanese shipping from American B-25s and P-38s during the Aleutian campaign. 23"x 19" print.
