Using silkscreen printing, enhanced with bright day-glo colours and a mid-fifties atom age design provides for a striking and memorable image, with neither an aircraft nor the Speedbird logo in sight.

This is the larger and scarcer format of this poster, 25" x 40". It was also issued as a 20" x 30" poster.
