Hi,

I enjoyed seeing the image of Dick Bellinger. I had met him as a boy. My late father was an attack pilot aboard Oriskany when that pic was taken. I know the entire story behind the shoot down. Plus the goings on afterwards.

Cheers, Dave

Hey Edward, The auction passed with all the Alberto Vargas originals and some prints. The prices were insane!! Even the limited edition prints were over 1000! I was able to score a western piece used on the cover of a pulp magazine. It was a 1931 Frank Spradling oil painting called The Sheriff Ducks
remember my doughnut logic. good jacket. Jacket too big. Free doughnuts. Doughnut + Me = Me + new jacket. Simple logic.

Hi Lorenzo,
Im on my way out, but wanted to ask again (I may already have done)... Can you double check the back length at 24.8?
It looks like a nice jacket, but I recon its likely on the short size for me, although the sleeves seem long enough.
Thanks,
Brett
