"Only the spirit of attack born in a brave heart will bring success to any fighter aircraft no matter how higly developed it may be." ---Adolf Galland

The painting was a combined effort of Matthew and Mark Waki. It is based on their 7 ft x 17 ft mural depicting a hypothetical combat scenario originally designed in 1979 by pilots of the 16th Tactical Fighter Training Squadron, "First in the F-16".
