We had a great time with everyone who came to our meetup at the Jefferson Memorial to watch the World War II warbirds fly over D.C. on May 8. Thanks again to the wonderful Colonel Scott Willey, who told us all about what was flying over. We got a couple of you lucky ducks VIP access to the roof of the tallest building in Rosslyn, and tons of you scattered around D.C. getting whatever sights you could. Here are the best shots from the #WW2Flyover:
This Friday May 8, WWII planes are flying over the National Mall. To enjoy the sky parade, Exposed DC is hosting an event around the Jefferson Memorial. Photographing airplanes flying in the sky can be complicated—timing is everything. To help anyone bringing their camera down to the Mall, I asked aviation photography expert, Chris Williams, who also taught our Knowledge Commons class at Gravelly Point last fall, a few questions about his craft and to share a few tips about capturing great aeronautical images.
