Keith Ferris: "F-105s Strike The Paul Doumer Bridge 11 August 1967"

To represent the Yank side of things, I'd recommend Keith Ferris's iconic print of F-105s pulling off target: "F-105s Strike The Paul Doumer Bridge 11 August 1967":

My best print is on the wall, an Anthony Cowland ULLA drop from a C130K. This one is nearly as good.

NLG,

No investment in the Jaguar print - 2nd prize in the Coltishall OM Xmas draw. Can’t remember if it was 1991 or 1992.
