This beautiful painting was done by artist and KR pilot Herb Bull. The painting was presented to Jeannette Rand at the 1992 KR Dinner held in Oshkosh.

The following is a description of the painting as recalled by Jim Faughn: "This presentation took place at Oshkosh in 1992 and it was the night of the same day Herb Bull died in his plane at Oshkosh at the flyby. Herb was a very good artist and wanted to do something special to cap off the 20th anniversary. He also put together a great slide show which is part of another story. What I remember of the people in the picture is: Upper right corner are the Rand kids and Kens Parents - Ken and Jeanette in upper center with Jeanette's mother on the left of Jeannette - Upper Middle left is Dan Diehl and Jeannette - Lower Middle left is Steve Bennett - Lower Middle Center and bottom is Ken and ? working on the amphibious KR - Middle Right is Ken and Stu working on the first KR-2 - Bottom Right is the year Ken took Oshkosh by storm with the KR-1 and KR-2. This was a trailer Ken built just to trailer both planes to Oshkosh. Jeanette said they had a lot of looks along the way. You can tell it is the early 70's by the dress of the family in the lower right."

The photo below is of Ken Rand flying his open cockpit KR-1 N1436.

And here is Ken flying N1436 after he converted it to a closed cockpit KR-1. N1436 is now owned by EAA and is on display in the FAA building at Oshkosh Wittman Regional Airport located in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Click here to view a tribute to Ken Rand.

The following photos are of the EAA Memorial Wall in Oshkosh, WI. Thanks to the generous donations of a few KR Netters, we were able to have Ken Rand Inducted on the Memorial Wall.
