    Some great photographs can be found at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum Collections Division.  The photographs show the finished version of Eric Sloane’s Earth Flight Environment as well as some images of the artist at work.  I did not realize that there is another Eric Sloane mural, hidden currently behind a wall, in the Age of Flight section of the museum.  From the photograph, it looks like a great mural.  Has anyone seen it in person?
