World War I Ace McCudden Dogfight – Print of a Painting by JB Deneen

James Thomas Byford McCudden, VC, DSO & Bar, MC & Bar, MM (28 March 1895 – 9 July 1918) was an English flying ace of the First World War and among the most highly decorated airmen in British military history.

This print of the painting by renowned artist James Bennett Deneen depicts McCudden in a dogfight with a “green tailed Albatross” of the German airforce, as referenced in McCudden’s book “Flying Fury”.

This particular print hung in the former 1970’s Florida home of author Richard Bach.

Biplane in Flight Piloted by author Richard Bach – Photo

Digitally Enhanced Example: The above image was created from a very basic photo of the original photograph while still in the frame, to show what can be done if the image was digitally enhanced. By removing the original photo from the frame and scanning it, a digitally enhanced version would no doubt look considerably better than this quick mockup, and would certainly be much better than the faded original photo.
If required, we can do the scanning, digital enhancement, and printing of a new print, for an additional $50- fee after purchase. This would be supplied together with the original frame & print.

Description: Framed photo of biplane in flight.

PHOTO: Photo of Richard Bach flying a biplane, aircraft model undetermined.

Richard Bach’s Model Aircraft Kits

Richard Bach’s model aircraft kits from the mid 1970’s.

Richard Bach’s Model Aircraft Kits ~

May 20th 2019 – More Richard Bach ‘Seagull Memorabilia’ was discovered while cleaning up my house this past weekend.  

These are model aircraft kits that were stashed away for years in the cupboard along with Richard Bach’s paintings. He used to have quite a few aircraft models hanging in his old Florida house, so we assume Richard intended to also build these models one day. 

Trimaran “Jonathan Livingston Seagull” – Framed Photographs – ** UPDATED APRIL 43RD 2020 **

To be sold as a set, see descriptions and individual photos below.

Is this the story behind the trimaran “Jonathan Livingston Seagull”?

At some stage in the mid 1970’s, Richard Bach either had a trimaran designed and built for him, or purchased it already built.

We are still researching the history behind these photographs, but this may be the story (we will update this when we get more details.) :
