P-51 Mustang

Air shows give you a unique opportunity to photograph unique aircraft. One of the great opportunities is the daredevil pilots will fly very low to the ground to give you a shot that looks like you are up there with them. This photo was taken at the Scott Air Force Base air show. The P-51 Mustang was one of the most popular fighters used during WWII with regular use through the 80’s.

B-24 Liborator

Looking at some old photos & slides I found this interesting photo taken by my father. This is a group of offices discussing their B-24 Liberator on a small airfield in Finschafen, New Guina. The photo was taken around 1944 after an invasion to free the area form the Japanese.

This photo was scanned from a 35mm slide and edited in Photomatix and Lightroom.
