Photograph signed: "Robin Olds/BGen USAF (Ret)". B/w, 8x10. In August 1944, Robin Olds (1922-2007) became an ace after his first two combat missions, claiming two FW-190s on the 14th and three Me-109s on the 25th. He ended WWII with 13 victories. In September 1966, Olds became commanding officer of the 8th Tactical Fighter Wing at Ubon, Thailand. In 1967, he shot down four MiGs. General Olds is the only ace with air-to-air victories in nonconsecutive wars. Promoted to Brigadier General, General Olds became Commander of Cadets at the U.S. Air Force Academy in 1968. Olds, who retired in 1973, was married to Hollywood actress Ella Raines from 1947 until her death in 1988. Image slightly grainy. Minor surface scratches and striations (not evident head on). Fine condition.
