Thought provoking

Back in September 2016, I embarked on a crazy weekend which involved a 728 miles round trip in 47 hours which took me to the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Museum, East Kirkby for the opportunity to photograph a Lancaster bomber at night.

Backed up by some resilient and patient re-enactors, the scene was set to create some thought provoking images.

As was all too often the case during WW2. airmen, young men, would head out east over the North Sea never to return
The RAF lost a total of 55,573 killed out of a total of 125,000 aircrew: a death rate of almost 45% percent. 8,403 were wounded in combat & 9,838 became prisoners of war.

Thought provoking images indeed, my only crib is the way they stage all the props in the same place, makes it look set up (even though we know it is)
When I did a shoot there I tried to tell them not to do it, only to be shouted down by 200 angry photographers, I must be in a minority.
