From the internet, you could try this place. They may have released the print. It's worth a try:

Frames-N-Graphics Warehouse 6301 Colleyville Blvd Colleyville, TX 76034-6226 (817) 488-5511

Also, you might check the backing of the print. Seems like a lot of real people in that sketch and I would think their names might be on there somewhere..

all those faces are familier, alright, they are the crew and namesake of the Memphis Belle, as noted on the nose. They match the photos of the crew on my painting by "whats his name" the one with the Belle over France and Fw190s out the wazoo and the pictures down each side. I bought this from Ben Drew at a local gun show here in Atlanta 10-12 years ago
