STING OF THE BLACK TULIP - Framed Collector's Piece
Led by the Staffelkapitän Erich Hartmann flying his black tulip-decorated Me109-G6, pilots of 7/JG-52 make use of billowing clouds to ambush Russian fighters high over the Eastern Front, August 1943.
In just over 2½ years, Hartmann scored 352 aerial victories to become the top-scoring Ace in history. It is a feat unlikely to be replicated.
This superb print is signed by the famous Ace himself and in tribute to Hartmann's astonishing career, has also been autographed by a glittering array of top-scoring Aces to authenticate perhaps the most unique collection of Luftwaffe signatures every published, amassing an incredible 1,276 victories between them!
The piece is mounted and framed to full conservation standards to include a museum quality replica Knight's Cross medal and Luftwaffe Breast Eagle.
The full list of SEVEN signatures reads:
- Oberst Erich Hartmann KC with Oak Leaves, Swords and Diamonds
