Truly Wings Over Miami ~ a B-17 adventure in photos

Every now and then a person has the opportunity to do something that is really fun and special.  Photographer Mike Downs spent quite a bit of time with Wings Over Miami this past week snapping photos. No surprise to us, he even scheduled a flight on the B-17 that he was so happily photographing. So, over the next few weeks, you will see new photos up on Facebook and on this website compliments of Mike. The first photo is Mike’s plane as he leaves on his first B-17 Flight. Bet he didn’t think we noticed him leaving us behind!
