Currently available in open and signed Limited Lithograph Editions, Canvas Giclée & Poster Edition. In September 2015, a Limited Edition Lithograph Edition became available, personally signed by Reno Air Race pilots representing the exciting first century heritage of the National Championship Air Races at Reno. A smaller format display poster version of this painting may also be available at this time as well.

In 1964, the roar of high performance warbirds echoed over the high desert landscape at Stead Air Force Base in the very first Reno Air Race. Shown in this ‘heritage’ scene is an assortment of Unlimited Class racers, representing the first 50 years of this exciting annual September event. Consisting of stock and modified  warbirds and “purpose-built” propeller-driven aircraft, many speed records have been set and broken over the years, thrilling audiences who flock from locations all around the globe to witness the fastest piston show on Earth.
