My first air-to-air shoot!  My shots didn't come out as good as I had hoped, but it was still a lot of fun taking them.

We were en route from Mojave to Fox Field.  A big thanks to Bob "Stambo" Stambovsky with Stambo Aviation for taking me up in his Piper Lance and making this a possibility.

Here's another AzAP exclusive, you will not find this photo posted anywhere else!

Looks pretty good to me. I especially like the mountain background.

I totally fell behind my camera yesterday and really came away empty-handed as far as solid, sharp images of the B-17's low pass goes.  This is the best one out my series - looking forward to a re-match.

Was great seeing everyone out there and finally getting a chance to meet Jay and Mitchell.

Very nice images by all who came out!

Since we're documenting this bird, I'll add some Nose Art shots that were actually taken a couple years ago:
