    Michael Collins Original Watercolor of the Air Force's F-100D Super Sabre by North American, in Framed Display. A 12" x 8" (sight size) painting of the very first F-100D (54-2121) taking off. The first flight of this particular plane was in January 1956. The F-100, the first USAF fighter capable of supersonic speed in level flight, was the higher performance follow-up to the F-86 Sabre which Collins flew. There is good reason to suspect that he may have flown one of these at some point in his test pilot career. Signed at lower right: "M. Collins III '01". Double matted and framed to an overall 18" x 14". A nice departure from Collins' usual subject matter, a perfect piece for an Air Force aviation collector. Purchased originally from Novaspace. Light wear to frame, excellent.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
