Available to the public for the first time, this wonderful collection of paintings, exclusively displayed here at the Southern Museum of Flight for the first time, depict actual declassified CIA missions. The originals are on permanent display at the CIA Headquarters in McLean, Virginia. Each scene was exhaustively researched and recreated by world-class artists such as Dru Blair, James Dietz, Jeff Bass, Stuart Brown, Gareth Hector and others. Each piece of artwork is complimented with a seperate panel of information about the mission and the artwork itself.
