This photo is a follow up to my last post of the TBF Avenger plane, Pacific War Memories. , flown into the Battle of Midway on June 04, 1942.
This is one that will be framed and hung on my wall within the next few weeks! In my opinion, it couldn’t have come out any better. Before I take any photo, I can see it in its final form, edited, blemishes removed, or in this case, highlighted. This picture is so powerful, it shows the souls of the Airmen who flew it into the Battle of Midway. The engine is the heart of the plane, but in this case it’s more than that, it represents the heart of those who trusted it to take them safely back to their families. It is a machine of epic proportions, a machine that can be used as a weapon or as someone’s saving grace. It can bring heartache or happiness, all depending on the way you look at it.
