"Deck Departure" and the companion print "Last Launch"
The Latest Release from Robert Bailey
USS Nimitz is the lead ship in this class of nuclear powered aircraft carriers operated by the US Navy. For over 30 years, NIMITZ has affectively projected American military power around the globe. In this pair of exciting prints, taken from an original painting and drawing, Robert Bailey has captured the high activity level associated with aircraft launches from this majestic lady. "Deck Departure" depicts the launch of LT COL "Hamster" Hobson's F/A 18 Hornet from NIMITZ's #3 cat, while "Last Launch" shows the aicrcraft of Carrier Air Wing 11 departing NIMITZ prior to her arrival at San Diego in late June 2008. Both prints in this very limited edition are signed by the artist. In addition, Deck Departure is co-signed by five high-echelon officers from USS Nimitz at the time the print was created.

"Deck Departure" by Robert Bailey
and the companion print, "Last Launch"
Our country's national ensign forms the backdrop for this portrait of the potent and agile F/A 18 Super Hornet. A second critical look at the print will reveal another national symbol, a bald eagle, which the artist has cleverly included in the folds of the flag.
Set against a beautiful sunset, the versatile F/A-18 Hornet is framed by the visage of America's national symbol. In Strong Arm of Freedom, aviation artist Darryl Strader demonstrates his mastery of color with his striking but subtle treatment of two of America's freedom symbols. The 22" x 30" print is signed by the artist. Be sure to select your desired print options when ordering!
August 1990 saw the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait, claiming for themselves the "Nineteenth Province" of Greater Iraq. As the allied coalition, led by the United States, pressed for Iraqi withdrawal, the troops, planes tanks and ships of the coalition gathered, first to defend Saudi Arabia from invasion, and then to forcibly expel the Iraqi forces from Kuwait and restore it's legitimate government. After months of futile negotiations, allied forces prepared to strike. STORM WARNING is a stunning depiction of the flight and deck crews aboard the USS Saratoga preparing F-14 Tomcats of V-103 (Sluggers) and F/A-18 Hornets (Sunliners) for the upcoming missions of January 16th, 1991, the evening before the launch of Operation Desert Storm.
