BURLINGTON NC, OCTOBER 19, 2016 - Jay Selman

On a perfect October day in 2016, I enjoyed the rare privilege of photographing three WW II bombers of the Collings Foundation. I could not have asked for a more perfect weather day. I was riding in the back seat of an SNJ as the bombers departed Burlington NC (BUY) on their way to Statesville NC. (SVH).  We circled BUY as each of the bombers took off, and joined up while in a shallow left-hand 360-degree turn. I had one chance at each of the bombers. I did the best with what I had to work with, including some tremendous flying by Jim Zazas in the SNJ. Here are my best efforts with some extremely rare subjects.
