Flying Red Horse #28


This painting depicts Chuck Tucker on a test flight of his visually stunning, highly modified Bell P-63C King Cobra around the Cleveland National Air Race course while preparing for the Thompson Trophy race. For 1946 the course featured surplus military barrage balloons as course markers instead of pylons. The aircraft featured the shortest wingspan of any unlimited racer after removing 6.5' from each wing. Besides the horrible handling qualities, fuel leaks and landing gear that would not fully retract made his 1946 debut a total failure. This painting was featured in the spring 2021 issue of Golden Pylons, the Journal of Air Racing Historians and the January 2022 issue of Air Classics Magazine.
