B-29 Superfortress "FiFi" Cockpit

B-29 Superfortress "FiFi" Cockpit

The cockpit of the Boeing B-29 Superfortress "FiFi". This photo was taken at Mather Field, Ca. during her west coast tour. FiFi was on display all weekend allowing for several flights and photo opportunities. Sunrise photos were void of clouds that would make a more dramatic looking sky, but still, the photos were good. Camera used was the Canon 5D Mark III and a Tokina AT-X 16-28mm F2.8 PRO FX lens. I used a Canon ETX-530 strobe to balance the interior/exterior lighting.

P-51 Mustangs Lightning & Rainbow at the Reno Air Races

The P-51 Mustangs in a wild thunderstorm at the 2013 Reno National Championship Air Races. Bob Hoover's 'Ole Yeller' has a rainbow and Clay Lacy's P-51 with lightning is one of those very rare moments in photography. This photo is in the December 2013 issue of the Smithsonian Air & Space Magazine. Printing on Kodak Metallic Paper really highlights the lightning, polished props, and rainbow.
