STRATOJET SHAKEDOWN, LIMITED EDITION PRINT - CK00025  

NOTES: The early 1950s was a threatening time for the United States and the free world. It was also a time of discovery in aviation, a time of adventure and a lot of hard work for the Strategic Air Command. Flight crews were constantly on alert or in the air, frequently for fifteen hours at a time. Life on an air base was stressful and the demand for vigilance and excellence was never ending..

Stratojet Shakedown Limited Edition Print   by Craig Kodera  is signed by the artist and comes with a certificate of authenticity.

Craig Kodera bio

Aviation is this artist s living. Painting is a joy and a choice; not his career. Craig Kodera career is as an airline pilot, so each of his paintings reflect an intimate knowledge of how it feels to fly and what it looks like out the cockpit. "I paint what I see," he says,"and my office window is at 35,000 feet." An appreciation of aviation came easy, since Kodera was raised in what he terms an "aviation family," which included an uncle who flew with the famous Doolittle Raiders during World War II. At an age when most teens were trying to ace the driver s test, Kodera had earned his private pilot s license. A love of painting also came early. Kodera started seriously studying it at fourteen. He graduated from UCLA with a degree in mass communications and spent a year as a commercial artist before joining the Air Force Reserve, where he was assigned to the Air Rescue Service and then the Strategic Air Command. There his knowledge of air war history grew while he logged literally thousands of hours flying. Eventually Kodera left the service and joined American Airlines. When he isn t flying, he s usually painting. His artwork is part of the Smithsonian Institution s National Air and Space Museum permanent collection and hangs in many museums. He is also the charter vice president of the American Society of Aviation Artists, a member of the Air Force Art Program and serves with the Los Angeles Society of Illustrators.
