About this Item

This renowned English pilot was a Royal Air Force fighting ace credited with shooting down 34 enemy aircraft and sharing many other air victories during World War Two, making him the highest scoring Allied fighter against the German Luftwaffe; he fought in the Korean War as well, and rose to the rank of Air Vice Marshal. Handsome PS, 7" X 10", n.p., n.y. Fine. Modern print of a WW2-era black and white glossy photograph of Johnson half-length in uniform, part of the cockpit visible behind him. In a blank are at upper right, he boldly signs in black fineline: "Air Vice Marshal, / Johnnie Johnson. / 616 Sqn. / 38 Victories." A superb example, and accompanied by an unsigned, probably unpublished 3½" X 5" color snapshot of Johnson seated behind a table, presumably at some public appearance (dated on verso 6 May 1989) -- likely the occasion at which this photograph was signed.
