Sacramento County Sheriff STAR 8 N277JK is an art print from an original illustration. (This is not a photograph) Meticulously detailed, the helicopter is set against the winged STAR insignia, and the description text is bordered by the tactical patch and sheriff's star. While similar to STAR 7, there are subtle differences that make this aircraft different including wire strikes, a Nightsun instead of a TrakkaBeam, altered antenna placement, and crew.
Perfect for award presentations, the office or home, or as a gift for that helicopter fan.
Printed on high quality, heavy weight Luster paper using a 12-color pigmented, archival ink system.
