Rare United States Air Force photograph of legendary aviator Howard Hughes, Major General Oscar Westover, and General of the Air Force Henry H. Arnold. Signed and inscribed by each aviation pioneer, “O. Westover Maj. Gen. A.C. Chief of the Air Corps”, “Howard Hughes”, and “H. Arnold Brig Gen. A.C.” Major General Oscar Westover succeeded Benjamin Foulois as Chief of the Air Corps in 1935 and, on September 21, 1938, perished in an air crash at Burbank, California. Henry H. Arnold succeeded Westover as Chief of Air Corps on September 29, 1938. Arnold rose to command the Army Air Forces immediately prior to the American entry into World War II and directed its hundred-fold expansion from an organization of little more than 20,000 men and 800 first-line combat aircraft into the largest and most powerful air force in the world. He additionally moonlighted as a silent film stunt pilot and was portrayed on film by actor Walter O. Miles in the 1977 American made-for-television biographical film The Amazing Howard Hughes, starring Tommy Lee Jones as Hughes. In 1946, Hughes performed the first flight of the prototype U.S. Army Air Forces reconnaissance aircraft, the XF-11, near Hughes airfield at Culver City, California. The XF-11 crashed in Beverly Hills, destroying three houses. Hughes was rescued by Marine Master Sgt. William L. Durkin, who happened to be in the area visiting friends. It is rumored that Hughes sent a check to the Marine weekly for the remainder of his life as a sign of gratitude. In fine condition. Exceptionally rare, signed three major figures in the history of American aviation.
