Color IPS, glossy 8" X 10", n.p., n.y. Fine. Modern reproduction of a great pose of a smiling young Gabreski seated in his P-47 cockpit, with 28 small Nazi flags on the plane's side denoting confirmed victories. In a light blue sky area at upper left, he boldly inscribes and signs in black fineline "To Ron Beam -- / With kind regards / and best wishes! / Francis S. Gabreski / Col USAF." A stellar example.
