48 Hour Photo Comp - USAF 75th Anniversary

Post by PeterR »

Looking for your three best images relating to the upcoming 75th Anniversary of the United States Air Force. Could be taken at a previous anniversary event (eg RIAT 2017), feature a USAF Heritage Flight, or simply be a nice shot of a USAF aircraft. I look forward to seeing lots of variety please...

These are not in the competition as I will be off the electronic grid for a week or so, but my take on the brief-

Image2016 Tucson-22 (1 of 1) by Peter Fenwick, on Flickr

I know this is a Navy bird but shows a great anniversary scheme as an example-

Thought all the G models were built in Texas and delivered to SAC :) even with a financial contribution from HMG
