Additional Product Information

John Knudsen ''Jack'' Northrop [1895 1981] was a prominent American aviation pioneer and aircraft industrialist who began his aviation career in 1916 as a draftsman for Lockheed Aircraft and later served as the chief engineer on the Lockheed Vega transport. In 1939, after working for many of the aircraft builders of the era he founded the Northrop Corporation. Northrop designed and built many noted aircraft but his true passion was the flying wing of which he produced a number of different design types which are now truly understood for how advanced they were for their time. Jack Northrop never gave up on the flying wing design and in 1976, he communicated with NASA about his belief in the low drag high lift concept in the flying wing and was advised by NASA that his idea did have technological merit and they had not abandoned it. Shortly before his death in 1981, he was given clearance to see designs and hold a model of what would later become the Northrop Grumman B-2, which shared many of the design features of his designs from 40 years earlier. Listed for auction is a photograph signed by John Knudsen Northrop. The photograph is a color matte finish mage of a vintage Lockheed Vega aircraft and the autograph is signed ''Congratulations and Happy Landings to Lockheed Vega Enthusiast Dave xxxx, ''John K. Northrop'' in black felt tip pen. The photograph measures 10.00 x 8.00 inches, it has trivial edge wear on the outer white border otherwise it is in fine condition. The autograph is authentic and the photograph is attractive and will be a nice addition to any aviation collection. We have listed a collection of military, aviation and astronaut autographs. .
