Reno Air Races

“At the Reno Air Races, we’re meeting up with old friends and meeting new ones.  John Brand, attending the races from Ogden, Utah, brought us his AVG jacket, painted by Victory Girl a few years ago. John’s design features the P-40s of the WWII American Volunteer Group ‘Flying Tigers’ and AVG pilot Dick Rossi, whom John was friends with.   Lonnie Ortega, an aviation artist did the initial artwork of Dick Rossi, which we re- created here on John’s jacket.  John tells us that  it is difficult to get his jacket away from his granddaughter, who likes his jacket as much as he does!   Thanks, John, for letting us display your lovely artwork.”
