"Sirius Business"

 

Completed 2011

 

Painting dimensions 24" x 30" acrylic on gessoboard

 

This painting depicts Paul Mantz and cameraman Elmer Dyer filming a scene for the 1940 film, “Men with Wings,“ from a Lockheed Sirius 8C, one of many camera aircraft operated by Mantz.
An ex-United Airlines Boeing 247D masquerades as the Falconer “secret bomber,“ pursued by two Army P-12s (Boeing Model 100s). The Sirius was modified with a 360-degree camera mount in the rear cockpit, an enlarged windscreen, and removal of the turtledeck fairing (the aircraft was originally delivered with enclosed cockpits that interfered with filming).
