Smithsonian Institution print along with an actual piece of original fabric from that very airplane. The original fabric measures two inches square(which is intact unlike a lot of other ones seen with material missing). A really nice example of an absolute vintage RARE gem.The print size is 15 x 20 inches, excellent condition. Dont see these very often show up! From the mid-1970's to the early'80's, the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum produced its "Aviation Relic Series" of limited edition prints, featuring 2 square pieces of fabric from various historical aircraft in their collection. These were from aircraft that were going through restoration at the time to replace deteriorating original fabric. The National Air and Space Museum kept some large pieces of the original fabric in their collection for future reference but they decided to make some original fabric available to the public through this poster series to stimulate more interest in the museum.
It seems remarkable that the Smithsonian would sell off such significant artifacts, and after a few years, the museum decided that this was not a good idea after all and their policy now forbids this practice.
