I realize that his is just another addition to my galleries, something that I’ve been doing a lot lately but i wanted to add to of favorite aircraft, the P38 Lightning my all time favorite plane and the P51-C Mustang down at Fantasy of Flight. I have photographed only two P38’s, 23 Skidoo and Glacier Girl. Both were at the Reno Air Races this past September and I had the fortune of photographing them. Each plane has a great history, a history I’m still learning.
This particular P51-C is painted in the colors of Lee Archers plane from the Red Tails. It just so happens to have the armor plating in the cockpit is signed by Lee which makes the plane just that much sweeter. The plane has an amazing paint job and the one morning we were able to photograph it we had some amazing fog. After some time of processing images it seems right as the next one to add.
