Wrapping up the series of Douglas promotional aircraft series. I believe there were 20 of these all 7" x 9" and suitable for framing. There is artwork of the aircraft on one side and a description on the other.
This one is the Nike Missile system. What is not mentioned on the backside with the description on the backside is that the missiles had nuclear warheads. These were anti-aircraft missiles and a nuclear warhead cuts down on the need for accuracy. Some did have conventional warheads depending on where they were placed.
Filling out the last two photos are a pair of Cold War warriors. I believe photo 3 is a B-47 and of course #4 is a B-52.
