Unfortunately some negativity towards our photography/video has come out, as new page followers come to this page there is the belief that we will always post the perfect shot or greatest video edit. We are group of volunteers who's first duties are to the aircraft, veterans and guests. Depending on the needs of those mentioned we may go a day without, and that's fine with us. The quality of the media is last on our minds as we are using our cell phones mostly. When Whiskey 7 comes in it may be that we have a quick video or a chance at photos, but as she comes to a rest it's time to work... Pins, blocks, chocks, fuel, oil, tow bar, tow vehicle, ladders, log books, walk around and oh there is oil on the cowling so where are the towels or rags. We may get lucky and take a photo that people love or we may stitch a video together from 3 different phones with an app on our cell. What does this mean? The planes first, last, always and if there is time maybe we shoot video or pics. We are stewards of a history larger than ourselves and we are proud, yet humbled that we have the honor to be part of bringing it to you. We thank you for giving us the ability to do so and now a chance to grow. As to pics and vid quality, Wait, be right back, there's some oil on the cowling. Cell phone in pocket, pass me the towels......... ... See more
