“Battle for the Schneider” by famed aviation artist Douglas Ettridge depicts Lt. James H. Doolittle flying the Curtiss R3C-2 racer to victory and capturing the Schneider Trophy for the USA. The race took place at Baltimore, Maryland, on 26 October 1925 and Doolittle achieved an average speed of 232.17-mph. The next day, Doolittle would fly the R3C-2 over a straight course to gain a world record speed of 245.7-mph. Both were stunning victories that propelled American aeronautics into the world spotlight. Of course, this would be just one of the many highlights in the fabled career of Jimmy Doolittle (1896-1993) who would go on to gain many other records and would lead the famed Doolittle Raiders on their mission to Japan. Today, the historic Curtiss R3C-2 is on display for all to see at the National Air and Space Museum. Printed on the finest watermarked art paper, there are only 16 signed and numbered Prints left! (along with a small number of artist’s proofs, which are printed on a deckle-edged stock). The fine art print measures an impressive 38.75”w x 27.75”h (image size is 35.5”w x 23.75”h) and each is hand-signed by General Doolittle and the artist during 1990 and we believe that these were the last major art works signed by General Doolittle. Please allow up to 10 business days for framing.
