May 25, 2005 - David Baker’s “Canopy” (Grey Study), a painting of an open T-6 cockpit, was awarded Best of Show in the 30th annual EAA Sport Aviation Art Contest. Baker, EAA 778913 and a member of EAA Chapter 35, hails from San Antonio, Texas. His subject was a Navy grey T-6 on static display at an air show held in Fredericksburg, Texas a couple years back. Baker, who works as a medical illustrator for The University of Texas Health Science Center, was awarded $1,000.

  • Barry Ross, of Fairfield, Iowa, EAA 243921, Open category, for “Lilienthal’s Glider,” a depiction of Otto Lilienthal soaring with one of his gliders, being inspired by the flight of an eagle.
