Tuskegee Airman Harry Stewart

Opportunities to be present with such great people are always not to be missed. At the Palm Springs Air Museum yesterday to photograph and video Tuskegee Airman Lt. Col. Harry Stewart. By the way, he is 95 years old. Here is a very fun minute…

How do you solve one of the unforeseen problems of enduring a 6 1/2 hour mission in a fighter aircraft? You might never have thought of this! Explained by Tuskegee Airman Lt. Col. Harry Stewart.

Yesterday at the Palm Springs Air Museum for the West Coast World premier of the Colonel’s book “Soaring to Glory: A Tuskegee Airman’s Firsthand Account of WWII”, along with author Philip Handleman.

The Colonel flew forty-three combat missions as a Tuskegee Airman in World War II. For his flying prowess with the famed 332nd Fighter Group, known as the Red Tails, he was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross.

It was a standing room only event and his book was a sell out!

B-17 Flying Fortress Flying!

Pretty cool! I was shooting a World War II B-17 Flying Fortress from a Red Tail P-51 Mustang for the Palm Springs Air Museum. It was the famed Tuskegee Airmen in those Red Tails that escorted the B-17 bombers into Germany on some of the most dangerous missions of the war.

The first sections of the video shot on a Fujfilm X-H1 Body with the Fujifilm XF 100-400mm lens. The wider view was from a GoPro Hero 6 Black.

Come on out yourself. Fun photo ops too.. B-17 Flying Fortress at the Palm Springs Air Museum! Saturday and Sunday Oct 13 & 14 from 10am – 1pm for flights and interior tours in the afternoon.
