This piece of artwork, requested by KAL9000, shows a scene near Quackenbrück on 8 November 1944, a few seconds before Leutnant Franz Schall of 2./Kommando Nowotny was forced to bail out of his Me 262A‑1a ‘White 1’ while being pursued by 1Lt James W. Kenney of the 362nd FS/357th FG.

This next illustration depicts Wilbur Wright catapulting aloft from the eastern infield of the Hunaudières race course 5 miles south-southeast of Le Mans at 6.30pm on Saturday 8 August, 1908, ascending steeply into a broad climbing circle before several hundred onlookers. At approximately 100ft in altitude, he levelled off into a second circle, and, after completing it, dipped into a gentle curving descent.

Hi guys, great December artwork!!! I particularly like the Me 262 Vs P-51 scene. For January I'd like to see something from Schweinfurt–Regensburg 1943 please!
