If you use any of these photos for commercial purposes I assume you'll discuss that with me.   Note: To see an actual-size high-resolution version of a particular photograph, click on the image.  You will see the full image in a separate window.  These were shot with a Nikon D70 – lens AF-5 Nikor 18-70mm 1:35-4.5G ED or AF Nikor 70-300mm telephoto.

On April 14 the local staff of Just Above Sunset was on a press flight. At ten that morning the editor and Just Above Sunset columnist Bob Patterson flew out of Torrance Airport on a media flight in a restored Boeing B-17G bomber from WWII. The link will explain what this was all about. These are a few of the 132 photos we snapped.  An expanded album of the photos – twenty-three shots – can be found at A Flight to the Past: Thursday, April 14, 2005 

 

Bob Patterson in his World’s Laziest Journalist column this week describes the flight.
