Legendary Spad XIII decked out in US Army squadron camouflage. WWI ace Eddie Rickenbacker’s own.
Eddie Rickenbacker was president of Eastern Airlines in the 1950's, and was the most famous American pilot during the Great War (1914-1918). Skilled in air-to-air combat, he shot down 26 German aircraft.
The Spad XIII was French built, and the machine of choice for the U.S. Air Service's 94th Squadron.
