Sixth On The Sixth is a limited edition print depicting Major George Preddy in his famous P-51, “Cripes A’ Mighty 3rd”, as he claims his 6th and final kill of the day on August 6th, 1944. With this victory George Preddy set a U.S. Armed Forces record of six victories in one mission. Aside from this distinction, Preddy had among his career highlights 27.5 aerial victories and 5 ground victories. To this day he is the sixth ranking Air Force ace and the eighth ranking American ace. Russell worked closely with Major Preddy’s cousin and biographer Joe Noah during its creation to ensure accuracy.

Printed on 100# acid free stock, the edition consists of 500 prints plus 50 Artists Proofs. Each print is individually signed and numbered by Russell Smith.
