1st Annual Air & Space Photo Contest
The Sun Highlighting a Formation of Eight Aircraft

"My dad worked a lifetime as a mechanic at Republic Aviation, now Fairchild, in Farmingdale, New York, throughout World War II and beyond," says Chapter. "I can remember my excitement in the 1940s when I was about 8 years old, living next to Mitchell Field on Long Island, and running outside as I heard airplanes landing and flying low right over our house. Later, I was fortunate enough to work on the Apollo Lunar-Model program as an engineer, never losing my interest in aviation and space. Now retired from aerospace, with a major interest in photography, I never miss an opportunity to attend local air shows here in Colorado."
