Plane Type: Bell X-2 Rocketplane

On September 7, 1956, USAF Captain Iven C. Kincheloe flew the exotic Bell X-2 research craft to a new world altitude record of 126,000 feet - the first time a manned airplane had ever flown outside the earth's atmosphere. Considered as pioneering in 1956 as the moon landing was in 1969, this flight earned Capt. Kincheloe the well-deserved nickname of "First of the Spacemen." Machat's original painting contains actual granules of white paint obtained from the Bell X-2, which was also the first airplane to fly at Mach 3, or 2,100 mph.

A Snip From the Past

Our Flat Canvas Option- When you purchase a flat canvas you will get just the image with approximately a quarter inch of extra canvas surrounding the image. This option is good for collectors who just want a document of the cleaned image on canvas. The Flat Canvas is suitable for framing but will probably need a matte and glass to finish a framed presentation. Our Synthetic Vinyl Option- When you purchase a print on this NEW synthetic vinyl, you will not only get the same great re-mastered image, but you will be able to get it cheaper than any of our other printing surfaces. The vinyl prints just like paper and you will be able to mount it, and frame it just like any other print. A real breakthrough for those of you who like your art BIG! Our Un-Stretched Option- When you purchase an un-stretched print from Plane Junkie you will get your image and a colored border surrounding the image. This colored border will enhance the image when it is stretched onto stretcher bars and will be seen on the edge in order to accent the printed image. Our Stretched Canvas Option- When you purchase a stretched canvas from Plane Junkie you will be getting a completed canvas with colored border stretched, finished with a wire on the back, and ready to hang on your wall. If you're not into the hassle of finding a framer to stretch your canvas or the cost of framing, which could run as much as your canvas, then this is the option for you. (note: Shipping could be higher on this option since we box these for guerrilla warfare and they are larger and more fragile.)
