100 Years of American Air Power - Breguet 14 to SR-71 Blackbird - Relics Display

This display reveals the incredible advancement of American aviation technology in a mere 100 years - from the World War I Breguet 14 to the Mach 3+ SR-71 Blackbird - from doped linen skin to titanium alloy skin.
.
This handmade creation, by artist Ron Cole, combines an authenticated swatch of original doped linen cut from the wing of an American (AEF) Breguet 14, and a cut fragment of titanium alloy skin from the fuselage of a USAF SR-71 Blackbird, with Ron's original artwork of both aircraft in flight. All are presented in a polished black frame (12 x 18 inches), under glass, ready to hang. Each is signed by the artist and numbered - only one of thirty. 
.
Certificate of Authenticity provided, numbered to match each display.
.
The square of Blackbird titanium is from the outer skin of SR-71A serial number 61-7970, nicknamed 'Super Skater', which crashed after an accident on June 17th, 1970 (no fatalities). 
.
The matched square of AEF fabric was cut from the lower underside wing of a Breguet 14 B2 that crashed at Clermont Ferrand, France c. 1918.
