A note about Paint...
Randy works almost exclusively in Shiva oils for all his paintings.  Shiva offers the richest in color intensity, brilliance of hue and chemical purity. Shiva oil colors are absolutely permanent, free from darkening, yellowing, fading and cracking. All Shiva formulations are thoroughly ground in up-to-date mills under exacting laboratory controls. Each pigment is ground to its own correct degree of fineness and every color is formulated individually.  Please bear in mind that oil paintings take many months to dry completely and should never be displayed in direct or high-UV lighted areas.

Shot down eight times, with four bail-outs and four crash landings, Boesch lost eight FW-190's while flying total of 120 combat missions over a twelve month operational period. His last mission ended with a mid-air collision with a Russian Yak-9 over the skies of Berlin in the last days of the war. Captured by Russian ground forces, he made good his escape several days later, and walked 1,000 kilometers to his native Austria.
During his career he scored a total of eighteen victories, earning the Iron Cross First and Second Class. Among his victims were a Spitfire, a Mustang, two B-24's, six B-17's, two Yak-9's, two LAGG-5's, and four IL-2's.

On August 9th, 1945 at 29,500 feet over the Urakami Valley, near the city of Nagasaki, the second act of atomic age unfolded. The primary target had been Kokura, Japan, but smoke and haze from the previous night's raid on the neighboring city of Yawata obscured the city and saved it from annihilation. After several unsuccessful bomb runs – orders were to only drop visually – and a critical fuel situation, Aircraft Commander Major Chuck Sweeney diverted to the secondary target, the city of Nagasaki. Until then, Nagasaki had led an almost charmed life in war-time Japan, relatively untouched by the bombings her fellow cities had suffered. Sweeney issued the order for only one pass on Nagasaki, their fuel dangerous low, before they would have to head for Okinawa. 

A last minute break in the clouds over Nagasaki, at 11:01 AM local time, allowed Bockscar's bombardier Captain Kermit Beahan to visually sight the target as ordered.  The "Fat-Man" weapon, containing a core of about 14-pounds of plutonium, was dropped over the city's industrial valley at 32.77372˚N, 129.86325˚E. Exactly 47 seconds later, at 1,650 feet above a tennis court halfway between the Mitsubishi Steel and Arms Works in the south and the Nagasaki Arsenal in the north, the bomb exploded, The blast was nearly 1.9 miles northwest of the planned hypocenter and confined to the Urakami Valley District. The explosion generated heat estimated at 7,050˚F and winds that were over 624 mph. A major portion of the city was protected from the destruction because of the intervening hills, whereas 70,000 people near the hypocenter vanished instantly. Faced with an imminent ground invasion and a “Rain of Ruin” from the air, Japan capitulated on August 15th, 1945.

This original painting by Aviation Artist Randy Green depicts the dauntless crews of 9th Air Force A-26 Invaders in action over a frozen river valley.  In the lead is A-26B #43-22369, "STINKY" from the 552nd Bomb Squadron, 386th Bomb Group stationed at Beaumont, France.  Thundering down the fog shrouded valley, "STINKY" and wingman survey the damage inflicted moments ago to a fleeing Wehrmacht armored column.
The 552nd was a truly tactical air force. Before the Invasion of Normandy, it was tasked with air control and ground preparation for the D-Day landings.  Often operating out of makeshift airfields within striking distance of the front lines, the 552nd had the role of closely supporting the ground troops as they rolled up on Hitler's Germany.

This painting depicts the Bell Aircraft Corporation's X-1B rocket-powered research aircraft from the original X-1 series. Flying high over Rogers Dry Lake in 1957 adjacent to the NACA High-Speed Flight Station. The X-1B offered an ideal testbed for a test reaction control installation. In November 1957, NACA technicians finished installing reaction controls on the X-1B. NACA test pilot Neil A. Armstrong made three flights in the airplane to experience the reaction controls performance. Since cracks in the fuel tanks of the X-1B forced its grounding in 1958, reaction control research shifted to the Lockheed F-104 Starfighter. The Bell X-1B was a second-generation X-1 used by the U.S. Air Force for pilot familiarization before being turned over to NACA in December 1954. The X-1B had a modified fuselage with greater capacity for fuel tanks, an improved cockpit, and a turbopump fuel system as compared with the X-1. The NACA used the X-1B primarily for aerodynamic heating and reaction-control research from 1956 to 1958. The aircraft was fitted with special instrumentation for exploratory aerodynamic heating tests. It had over 300 thermocouples installed on it. The X-1B was the first aircraft to fly with a reaction-control system; a prototype of the reaction-control system used on the X-15 and other piloted test aircraft. The X-1B was given to the Air Force Museum at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base Dayton, Ohio, on January 27, 1959, for preservation and display. This aircraft completed a total of 27 glide and powered flights by eight U.S. Air Force and two NACA test pilots. Second-generation X-1 aircraft were 35.8 feet long and had a wingspan of approximately 28 feet.
