"Wright Field," a 6 x 15 foot canvas painted in 1945 by Sgt. Stuyvesant Van Veen, portrays the World War II flightline of Wright Field, now Area B of Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio. In the upper left, a semi-transparent representation of the older portion of Wright Field can be seen, while in the upper right an allegorical figure of "Flight" reaches heavenward. The painting was once displayed in Building 126, the World War II Engineering Division Headquarters. The painting was later accessed into the Air Force Art Collection and is currently in storage at Joint Base Andrews, Md, where it is a candidate for future restoration. In August 2010 contractors began demolition of Building 126 to make way for a new base Information Technology Complex. (U.S. Air Force photo)
