Item Description

Original Items: One-of-a-kind Set. General Chuck Yeager X-1 collection from "Flight Test Historical Foundation" signed X-1 with original paperwork, COA, fact sheet with his original autograph in magic marker on the wing. Also includes a color photograph of him holding the model. This is a 6062 Glamorous Glennis Bell X-1 rocket research plane, owned by only one owner, and in terrific condition. There are no scratches or nicks. The plane itself is a 1/32 scale model, with bumpers on the bottom of the base and a great data plate.

Also included is an original framed print signed by Chuck Yeager. This Limited edition aviation art print titled "Into the Unknown" is signed in pencil by General CHARLES E. YEAGER and artist HARLEY COPIC . This print depicts the record breaking flight of Chuck Yeager on October 14, 1947 as he breaks the sound barrier in the Bell X(S)-1 at Mach 1.06. The aircraft is now in the collection of the National Air and Space Museum. Yeager named the aircraft Glamorous Glennis - naturally enough - extending the lineage of his P-51 fighters during World War II. General Charles E. “Chuck” Yeager began flying with the 363 rd in early 1944. He was shot down on his 9 th mission but successfully evaded capture and made his way to Spain. Yeager became an “ace in a day” by downing 5 Luftwaffe fighters on October 12, 1944. He ended the war with 11.5 victories including a Messerschmitt Me262 jet fighter. He is well known as the first man to exceed the sound barrier in the Bell X-1, but also was the first to exceed Mach 2.0 on December 12, 1953. His decorations include 2 Distinguished Service Medals, 2 Silver Stars, 2 Legions of Merit, 3 Distinguished Flying Crosses, a Bronze Star, 11 Air Medals, a Purple Heart and the Peacetime Congressional Medal of Honor. The photos do not do this print justice. Overall print size is 24 by 18 inches. Into the Unknown was limited to 1000 signed and numbered prints. The condition of this early aviation art print is excellent. An excellent opportunity to add a Yeager signature to your collection - and if you haven't added a Harley Copic print then your collection is incomplete. Print measures W 31" x L 27" x H 1".
