1st Annual Air & Space Photo Contest
Four of the five Lockheed P-38s flown at the Planes Of Fame Airshow, Chino, CA. May 2013.

"I went to the 2013 Planes of Fame Airshow in part to photograph this gathering of aircraft," says Croft. "It is rare to have the privilege of standing next to a huddle of P-38 Lightnings as they seemingly reminisce about old times. Among these four of the world's remaining seven operational aircraft—giants of their day—one is confronted with the realization that the term 'Greatest Generation' applies not merely to men, but also to their machines."
