"I had been shooting this and other aircraft for several hours, and the sun was going down," says Ford. "I saw this image, and as I was shooting, these people walked into my shot. I was a little upset at first, but they make the shot work. I imagined the father saying to his kids, 'Your grandfather flew one of these,' and the kids looking up in awe."
