I am pleased to announce the grand opening of BGEN Bob Cardenas's website where he is offering a series of litho's for sale. A project mostly done by Aviation History group co moderator Kevin Taylor, and somewhat by me. <G> A tip of the mad props beanie to Kevin, the website artist.

They are being sold at slightly above production cost and are, I believe, beautiful pieces. They highlight 3 events of his fabulous career:

(1) As Mothership/Launch pilot for yeager on his Sound Barrier flight
(2) As Chief USAF test pilot for the YB-49 Flying Wing program
(3) As Commander of the 18TFW during Viet Nam.

He signs these and inscribes them to you - all the information is on the site.

Also check out his biography and some photo's you may not have seen before.

here it is:

Appreciate any feedback direct - as well.

Cheers!

Nice website with the most pertinent informations and a very useful "service" part re: autographs and photos.

I think there is another nice shot Bob Cárdenas sends out occasionnally, showing him with the YB-49 (I think) over Washington DC. That might be a nice addition if ever you think of enhancing the site.

Thank you - yes I have that shot and a few others. Didn't want to overload my volunteer webmaster but in the future certainly.

Nice site, Al.

Has BGEN Cardenas authored a book on his career?

Thanks for the kind words - ALL credit goes to my friend and webmaster, Kevin Taylor.

No he's not written a book but wouldn't it be a great one?

Cheers,

Al

It surely would Al. BGEN Cardenas mentioned a book to me once a few years ago but hasn't brought it up since (despite mucho prompting ).

General Cardenas is such a great story teller, and with so many stories to tell... It seems like a no brainer for him to have a book published.
