Publisher's Description
[...] Like all artists, Tom’s stock-in-trade is to see what others overlook, to capture the essence of something that eludes the rest of us. With these photographs, he has done just that. He has succeeded in looking beyond the aluminum, steel and paint portrayed by the calendar photographers, to capture the true soul of these aircraft- a soul that is inseparable from the men that flew them in combat. These images are powerful because they embrace, rather than gloss over, the context with which these planes were created and flown. They pay tribute to the men who took them into battle, and they capture the emotion of an era that was routinely characterized by desperate life and death struggles. To do anything less is to only tell half the story. [...] As you view these photographs, don’t be surprised if you feel like you’re looking back through a crack in time and can hear the distant echoes of history calling. It’s not your imagination - it’s the power of great photography! William E. Hamilton (Former Planes of Fame General Manager)
