Sometimes photo missions just don’t go the way you would like them to. Warbird Digest photographer Scott Germain shares what it sometimes takes to get the photos that illustrate this magazine.
Not exactly your typical airshow, a cruise on the S.S. John Brown offers the opportunity to step back in time to relive what it was like for thousands of U.S. Service who set out across the high seas to meet the enemy. Steve Chapis had the opportunity to sail aboard the preserved Liberty Ship and brings the experience to readers of Warbird Digest.
Few airplanes invoke the memory of the 1940s air racing more than Bob Odegaard’s F2G Super Corsair. Scott Germain sat down with Odegaard to discuss restoring and flying the machine. Paul Bowen provided the stunning photographs.
In October 2007 aviation lost one of its greats with the passing Richard Becker. Shortly before he passed on, Scott Germain interviewed the veteran racer to find out what it was like to fly the Super Corsair around the pylons in Cleveland.
Ron Fagen has added another stunning specimen to his collection of fighters. This time in the form of a P-38 Lightning. Scott Perdue shares the history of this particular P-38 and the man whose memory it now preserves.
One of the most popular aerial displays at U.S. air shows is the USAF Heritage Flight. Putting the ingredients together for this emotionally stirring tribute (the announcer’s script, music, and well timed formation passes) is perfected annually at the Heritage Flight Training Conference.
Jim Russell recently revisited with the crew of the Commemerative Air Force’s B-25 “Yellow Rose.” For many years this group of dedicated individuals has operated the vintage bomber at airshows across the United States.
