There is an airplane up in the sky!

Col. John W. Thomason’s illustrations and paintings often have a military theme. Night time scenes of cannon fire and explosions in the sky are vivid and harken back to a time when Thomason was in the Marines in World War I.

Note: The original painting does not have a plane, cannon fire or moving lights for that matter. I added those for a cool gif effect.

If you are interested, all the John W. Thomason drawings have been digitized and can be found here.
