The Douglas SBD Dauntless dive bomber was America’s most powerful weapon in the war against Japan. The Dauntless sank more enemy ships than all other weapons combined. It did a great deal to turn the tide of the war early on, sinking one Japanese aircraft carrier in the battle of the Coral Sea and four more at the battle of Midway.
>This is one of the many things I love about being a commercial photographer. I got a call from the U.S. Air Force and asked if I wanted to take a Blackhawk helicopter on a scouting/shooting mission across the incredible terrain of southwest Idaho.
A couple of hours later I am strapped in, doors open, blade wash whipping, engine thumping, canyon chasing. It was an incredible experience I won’t forget. Shout out to Tony Vincelli and all the personnel at Gowen. It is a honor to know them. I got some great images I will be posting soon. http://www.youtube.com/get_player
