Airshow attendees who have witnessed legendary aviator Sean D. Tucker's electrifying aerobatic performances know that for his exhibition plane, the Oracle Challenger III, industrial strength is the absolute minimum acceptable standard. After all, the custom-built scarlet biplane allegedly puts out over 400 horsepower while weighing just 1200 lbs. Furthermore, with a whopping eight ailerons on its four wings, anyone with an iota of aerodynamic awareness knows that run-of-the-mill "aerobatic" guidelines won't cut it for this iconic entertainer aircraft. In Industrial Strength, world-renowned aviation artist Sam Lyons offers observers an up-close, "tail-on" view of the venerable superstar taildragger. Through his adroit use of just the right colors and his flawless replication of the airplane's unique attributes, Lyons pulls off an impeccable, nearly three-dimensional image that leaves no question as to the Challenger III's second-to-none durability. Also adding to the effect is the artist's obscure background imagery. After a few seconds of poring over the illustration's details, any viewer will see that uncommon power is an innate feature of more than just the airplane.

This 16" x 24" picture is available as both an Artist Proof (limited to 15) and a signed & numbered Limited Edition print (limited to 150). Both versions are printed on acid-free paper, utilize first-rate permanent inks, and include a Certificate of Authenticity. The epitome of excellence as is characteristic of Sam Lyons' creations.
