The Aviation Art of Richard Louis Newman



"Trimming the Palms."


The artist's favorite painting -- TRIMMING THE PALMS features the Grumman F6F-5 Hellcat which began service in January 1943 as a carrierborne fighter and fighter bomber. It tore through the skies at speeds up to 380 MPH, and though operational for just under two years, accounted for no fewer that 4,947 of the 6,477 confirmed kills against Japanese aircraft by US Navy carrierborne fighters during WWII.
