Default B-24 at Zamperini Field

There was a tribute to Louis Zamperini this week in his hometown of Torrance CA. During the tribute his son took a ride in this B-24. The same type of plane he was in during his fateful flight over the Pacific on May 27th 1943.

More information.

Never heard of him. Great story. Nice shot of the aircraft.

Nice shot of the aircraft. Nice angle and nice prop blur.

Thanks Jehan and Robert. Prop blur was my goal during this shoot. It's been something that I've never really paid attention to until I posted some plane pics here and received some useful CC.

As an active aviation photographer, I still find capturing prop blur on fixed wing aircraft and choppers to be extremely challenging. To capture good and keep the rest of the aircraft sharp is difficult. It is easier when the aircraft are taking off and the RPM's are much higher: You can use a faster shutter speed and still capture a good blur. Even on jet aircraft, there are times when I will slow the shutter speed down to capture the spinning turbines inside. Here's an example: http://www.airliners.net/photo/Ameri...116e85a5406146

The blur of the turbines together with the jet wash provides a sense of the massive thrust coming out of those massive engines.
