The Battle of Midway was the turning point of World War II in the Pacific, leading to eventual Allied victory. At the very start of that fateful conflict came an ominous confrontation. At 7:00 AM on June 4, 1942, Grumman TBF Avengers of the VT-8 squadron on their maiden combat flight were attacked by Japanese Mitsubishi A6M Zero fighters. A-T-I was the only Avenger to survive the encounter.

American Airlines First Officer and top aviation artist Craig Kodera honors all the courageous men who fought and died that day in the limited edition fine art print “ONLY ONE SURVIVED.”

In addition to the artist this print is individually signed in pencil by the two US Navy airmen who survived:

  • Avenger pilot ALBERT K. "BERT" EARNEST (ENS Earnest was awarded the Navy Cross, a gold star in lieu of a second Navy Cross, and the Purple Heart Medal for his actions on 4 June 1942.)
  • Avenger radioman-gunner HARRY H. FERRIER (Radioman 3 Class Ferrier was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross and a Purple Heart Medal his actions on 4 June 1942.)

Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
