This Limited Edition Print features 30 signatures from aviators, 26 of whom are Aces. Signed during the American Fighter Aces reunion in San Antonio. During May, 1916, Raoul Gervais Lufbery was assigned to N-124, the Escadrille Americaine. His flying skills became famous for inventing the so called "Lufbery Circle". Of Lufbery’s 16 victories, it is believed that his fifth was the most notable, during the famous "Oberndorf Raid" over Germany, October 12th, 1916. Four pilots from N-124, flying Nieuport 17's, were to escort the bomber mission to Oberndorf to destroy the Mauser Works factory there. On the return from the mission escort, Lufbery scored his fifth victory against a Roland CII. The combat was short and at the end of it, the German tumbled to earth. This made the fifth enemy machine which was officially credited to Lufbery."
