WWII Era Warbirds

Rate this Entry
This past week I had the fortunate pleasure of being able to shoot some pictures (well, a lot of pictures, actually) of three key aircraft from the WWII era: the B-17 Flying Fortress, the B-24 Liberator, and the P-51 Mustang. All three are cared for by the Collings Foundation, and they tour them every year in order to raise money for the upkeep of these amazing aircraft. In the just under two hours I spent around them on Monday, I shot in the neighborhood of around 1100 pictures, completely filling a 16gb card, and starting on an 8gb card, and completely drained one of the camera batteries I had. But I was able to get some really nice shots of the warbirds, in addition to some photos of other aircraft that were in the area at the time...
