Twentynine Palms’ most beloved lawman, Jack Cones, will be forever airborne in this 16-foot by 60-foot tribute. Elected in 1932, he was the law here until his death in 1960. He earned his lofty nickname by patrolling his 2,800-square-mile jurisdiction in a Piper J-3 Cub. Mural artist, Tim O’Connor of Twentynine Palms, came to admire the constable after hearing stories of Cones’ exploits while taking flying lessons at nearby Cones Field in the early 1970s.
