So it’s been one of those good fun weeks, or at least the start of the week and in light of that i thought it only fitting to have a fun Wednesday blog. Now you could say that this was inspired from watching Red Tails but there isn’t much out there that isn’t as much fun as flying with a B17. These big beauties just command the sky. They might not be the fastest or have the elegance as certain other flyers but they have an overwhelming awe to them.
The one up above is flying of course with his little buddies over the Arizona desert. Interestingly enough both of these photographs are of the same plane, same area outside Phoenix but due to the different months the planes were photographed and the drastic change in weather from clear skies to rain, they look so entirely different. That’s the one thing about photographing polished aluminum planes that still gets me is just how different the plane can look when you start playing with variables. That metal just reflects everything. It makes it fun!
