Roscoe Turner And Gilmore Special

Perhaps the most flamboyant of all the early aviators, Roscoe Turner was known as a daredevil test pilot, a mail carrier pilot, a pilot to the Hollywood stars, and an all around fun loving character.

Not a photograph of Roscoe would be taken without seeing him in his signature flight suite and those balloon style pants. For quite awhile Roscoe traveled with a real lion cub named Gilmore until the lion grew too big in size!

This piece contains a photo of Roscoe climbing into the “Gilmore Special” to participate in the Cleveland Air Race back in the early years of air racing. In addition, a response letter to an aviation fan in which Roscoe offers a look back at some of the concerns of early aviation, and compares it to a more recent time.

This is a hard to find original letter on his letterhead stationary. Owning this piece is a must for rounding out all aviation collections!

This wonderful piece is double matted with acid free mat boards. Front and back. Ultraviolet light proof plexiglass is used to prevent fading and prevent damage should the piece ever fall. It will not break or damage during shipping.

Black anodized metal framing is used for strength and to prevent chipping.

This piece has been framed and protected for the enjoyment of generations yet to come.
