Well some of you might be wondering why if this is the first plane I ever photographed Air to Air then why did it take me so long to put up on the sight? Well the simple answer is a photographer you never know when an image is going to be needed for something and when should it be held in reserve. That was the case. The original flight shots, which this one isn’t, I had a plan for but now are not going to be used for that purpose. That happens.
Well the T6 Texan was the first plane i ever did an Air to Air with and it seems a rather long time ago even though it was only 2 years ago. The shot seen here isn’t from that shoot, this one was taken this past April at Fantasy of Flight during an Air to Air workshop. The plane actually belongs to Stallion 51 and we lucked into having it for the shoot, seeing as we were down one plane. It turned out to be one great shoot, the Texan was a great subject over the Florida landscape. But if you want to see some of the shots from the first shoot you’ll have to go to the gallery.
