SPIRIT OF ARIZONA B-2 STEALTH BOMBER: SIGNED Full color print commemorating the B-2 Stealth Bomber Naming Ceremony for the Spirit of Arizona plane at Davis-Monthan AFB on March 20, 1998. Printed on heavy coated stock, approximately 11 x 14 inches, issued in 1998, O/P. Very limited production for distribution at the ceremony. Shows the B-2 in a fly-by with an Arizona accented background and the Spirit of Arizona logo at the bottom. Identical to the above unsigned print except this one is signed by three of the representatives at the ceremony. General Richard E. Hawley (signed Dick Hawley, Gen. USAF), who has flown the B-2, and Congressman Jim Kolbe (signed Jim Kolbe, U.S. Congress) are definite and legible. The third signature, while clean, is uncertain. It is possibly Col. John D. W. Corley, who was the 355th Wing Commander at DM-AFB at the time, but this is just a "best guess." While the unsigned print above is in VF-NM condition, this VF copy shows a bit of minor handling wear, seen at an angle, from being passed around for the autographs, but nothing that detracts from the piece. When framed, it will look outstanding. See signed print  $75
