A Year In Aircraft Photographs
My interest in the history of aviation is fairly new. I have had favorite planes for quite some time, most notably B-17 bombers, and my favorite era of aviation is definitely Second World War. This makes the USAF Museum in Dayton a perfect place to visit. I went to EAA AirVenture for the first time, and the USAF Museum in Dayton, Ohio twice this year.
This has been an interesting year for B-17s. While I visited the wreck (and total loss) of one right here in Illinois, another B-17 (the Memphis Belle) has finally reached a state of restoration where it’s wings are now attached.
I selected 12 photos which I like from all the aircraft photos I took during 2011, and you can see them below:
