   From the estate of the late Ensign George H. Gay this Battle of Midway this Douglas TBD-1 Devastator aviation art print was the first print that was done for my grandfather. They were made in the early 80's and are around 30 years old and were found still in mint condition after being in storage for many years. The overall Dimensions are 24 inches wide by 18 inches high and the Edition size was only 500.

 Unfortunately my grandfather past away before signing some of these beautiful Battle of Midway - Douglas TBD-1 Devastator aviation art prints and they are not signed by the artist John Ficklen so they are being priced accordingly.

 They have been stored flat in acid free materials and have never been framed.

 The Artist, John Ficklen is one of the pioneers of early high quality aviation art. John was one of the first to have his aviation art prints signed by the some of the greatest aviators in history.

 He often refers to his work as aircraft portraits, and his paintings reflect months of extensive research and His mastery of meticulous detail.

 John has worked with many aviators and the list includes Pappy Boyington, Gen. Jimmy Doolittle, Maj. Steve Ritchie, and my grandfather Ensign George H. Gay.

 In Addition to John S Commissions and Limited Editions, He has also illustrated a History of U.S. Flying Boats which has been published by the Naval Institute.

 A Native of Atlanta, John is a former Naval Aviator and was a pilot for Eastern Air Lines. Besides doing paintings another of his favorite hobbies is collecting propellers. A quote from John "These old wooden props represent aviations earliest days. There will never be any more of them, and they are a part of aviation history that must be preserved".

 John has always been involved with airplanes. The son of an aviation pioneer, John began drawing planes and building models when he was six years old. Many of his models have won national awards, and he has been commissioned by The Smithsonian to build for the National Air and Space Museum. John has combined his lifelong love of aviation and his unique artistic talents and is one of today's most popular aviation artists.
