By Philip Jaeger, Director of Operations
The Museum hosted our first Photo Contest this year. It was more of an experiment than anything else, but we were astonished by the number of amazing entries that were submitted. Oftentimes we hear that our airplanes can be difficult to photograph because they are static objects and the Museum is made up primarily of windows that can cause unusual lighting situations. But, some of these photographers made these planes come alive.
I hope you enjoy looking at them, and make sure to keep taking photos for next year’s contest!
