There are few aircraft in history which have played such a pivotal role in pilot training as the Stearman PT 17. Many World War II fighter aces first soloed in a Stearman, and the bright canary-colored naval version became known as the Yellow Peril, not so much for the inadequacies of the aircraft than those of its inexperienced pilots. The PT 17 is widely flown today in private hands, and represents a living link with the classic flying era of the 1930s. Print is signed by the artist and is #43 in an edition of 850 worldwide. Stamped with the Fine Arts Trade Guild seal. Dimensions unframed 30 x 25. Printed by Albany House, Coltishall, England.
