Man’s Art Takes Off

LAKEWOOD, Col. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Airplanes have caused one man’s career to really take off.

For 33 years, Joe Milich – who grew up near an airport – has been creating pen and ink drawings of aircrafts, amassing 1,100 pieces in the process.

His aviation art has been featured in TV shows and movies, and hangs in buildings around the world, including the Pentagon.

His most prized piece is a rendering of a TBM-Avenger signed by former President George H.W. Bush – the very plane the prez flew when he was a pilot in World War II.

Other autographed works include a drawing of a Fokker Triplane signed by Charles Schultz and a Bell X-1 – the first plane to break the sound barrier – signed by Chuck Yeager.

Milich is currently selling his artwork – the largest collection of aviation illustrations ever – to pursue a land-based endeavor: Oil based paintings of classic automobiles.
