                                  Really no words. An amazing collection.

                                  Are all of the signatures genuine or are some of them reproduction sigs?

                                  If all the sigs are originals, signed by the actual pilots, then you have an amazing collection of history in your possession.

                                  The P-38 Lockheed Lightning and the P-61 Northrop Black Widow have always been favorites of mine.

                                    They are all genuine signatures...there are several reproduced matted ones but they are photocopied from the actual autographs that I own. (those come from my collection of those that were killed in action in WW1 and WW2)...these prints range from the early 70s to as recent as 2 years ago. I had the pleasure of meeting many pilots and have attended a few reunions in the past...unfortunately 95+% of those who signed are now no longer with us...The British and US I might add probrably did the most to secure these signatures and create these unusual pieces of art as well as history ...Some of these took years to acquire some of these autographs, done at reunions,their homes, taverns, in so many countries, etc....a few of these were commissioned by the families of the pilot during illness or being close to death, with the proceeds going to the family as well as having a wonderful piece of art as recognition to the service they did...some even signed plain pieces of paper before the print was actually done due to the short time left...My favorite aircraft was the ME 262 ...I could probrably throw a top ten list out there, My favorite autograph I own is from Manfred Von Richthofen.....Pilots are from USA,Russia, France, Israel,Great Britain, Australia, South Africa, Rhodesia,Poland,Germany, Denmark,Canada,New Zealand,Japan, Spain,Finland, and a few more that at the top of my head I cant remember at the moment

                                      You have a volume of prints to fill a museum. Incredible collection!!

                                      I just read a very brief biography of Richthofen. An amazing pilot. Died very young if I remember correctly. Cool you have his autograph.

                                      I have always been partial to the F4-U Corsair and the P-51 Mustang.

                                        My dream was to open up a nice restaurant with these prints on the wall....unfortunately Sept 2008 changed those plans

                                          What an amazing collection!!

                                          Shoots my humble collection out of the air.

                                          While I do have a nice number of autographed aviation/space themed prints and photos, I also have an extensive collection of autographed books by the authors and the pilots/astronauts who were the basis for the books.

                                          I'll definitely be visiting this thread again, from time to time. As an aviation nut, I'm totally blown away by your collection, Adolfo.
