B-17 Flying Fortresses

Here are more than 30 of the B-17s I have photographed over the years. I consider myself very blessed to have had such an opportunity to record these vintage planes and honor the brave veterans that flew the Flying Fortress into troubled skies in World War II — heroes, one and all.
