New Jersey Pilots in World War I
This October, we are very fortunate to be able to display the paintings of aviation artist and historian, Michael O’Neal.
Combining aviation history and art, Michael specializes in portraying in-flight battle scenes from World War I. His extensive research of the subject ensures that each painting reflects a true-to-life interaction.
