When we started our event, we knew there were certain collections we just had to add to our list. One of those collections is the Lone Star Flight Museum in Galveston, TX which houses an exceptional collection headlined by their immaculate B-17G "Thunderbird," which will be our headline photo subject as well!
In Addition to "Thunderbird" we have a huge selection of aircraft to shoot including P-47 Thunderbolt, F6F Hellcat, F4U Corsair, F8F Bearcat and Spitfire. Coupled with some great backgrounds around the bay and march areas this will be a workshop for the history books!
