Testimonials & Reviews
I spent a long time wandering through the planes, photographing the amazing aircraft and the environment. I wondered if my grandfather had flown any of them, and felt I connected with him as well as my own family history. I also felt as if I had accomplished an uncompleted task on my father’s list as well.  Scott B on YELP
