Lt. Cmdr. Butch O'Hare by John Reardon

This is the little Grumman Wildcat that Cmdr. O’Hare flew the day he shot down five Japanese planes on one mission and won the Medal of Honor. I got to see this aircraft (or one painted to look like it actually) in the terminal at O’Hare Airport. Oh, and yes, the airport is named for the famous Navy ace. I did this drawing about ten years ago which you can tell by the crinkling of the paper.
