Air Pirate Wanted Poster - by Drake TigerClaw
"Drake TigerClaw, Laura, Taipa, Sherry, Daku, the other characters and planes, are from
 the fictional universe of Wild Aces. Most of Wild Aces takes place in a world on par
with the 1920's to 1940's. The stories are mostly pulp adventures having to do with wars,
air pirates, adventurers, and other shenanigans like you might find in old comics.
The planes are loosely based on real aircraft and many of the ones drawn so far
 are produced by the fictional Sky Ordnance Co."

"The White Skull" by Roy D. Pounds II 
From his sf story, Lords of the Air. A flying tiger pilot is shot down by The White Skull -
a mysterious airplane with a mirrored canopy that challenges all in its airspace.

Laura Sheiling - famous 19th Century adventuress
