This is photograph that took me a while to track down after getting a glimpse of it in a frame shop. Once I discovered it was a Time-Life photo it was easy to get.
I have always worked in the aviation industry and display this piece in my office. The story is that Margaret Bourke-White was traveling in an airship over Manhattan when the Douglas DC-4E flew under the airship. The markings on the DC-4 are early United Airlines and other research indicates this may have been the delivery flight of the first Super Liner. Since receiving this piece I have discovered that either the reflection or shadow of the airship is visible on the DC-4.
This is a spectacular picture at the end of the great airship liners and the beginning of the modern airliner. the Chrysler Building in the background gives the whole picture an art deco feel. I chose a brushed pewter frame and off-white archival matte that don't compete with the photograph.
This is a great piece that receives a lot of positive comments. The size and black & white photo goes well with an ink line drawing I have of a P38 Lightning displayed on the same wall.
