Ted Wilbur is a naval aviator, combat artist, editor, and writer with more than thirty years of experience. His paintings hang in the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C., and are a part of the U.S. Navy’s permanent collection of art. Many of his works are also owned by private collectors. Designated a Naval Aviator in 1950, Captain Ted Wilbur experienced his first flying assignments in night fighter and attack squadrons. He served in VX-3 (Special Weapons) and in VS-26, and was a plank owner in VRC-40, the first designated COD squadron. He was officer in charge of fight support missions in the Mercury project. Additionally, his broad experience in carrier operations includes a total of more than six hundred landings aboard thirty-six aircraft carriers, and more than 5,000 hours in both single- and multi-engine aircraft. Wilbur had additional assignments as a Navy Combat artist covering Projects Vanguard and Polaris, the manned space program, and nuclear submarines. His paintings and articles have appeared in both military and civilian magazines–Naval Institute, Proceedings, Time, True Magazine, and Saturday Review.
