View Full Version : 50th Anniversary Collage remembering those who are no longer with us.

Hi everyone. I know this is short notice, but a project was suggested to me this morning so I'm taking a crack at it. I'd like to put together a photo collage of all the pilots/crew members/aircraft that are no longer with us. We figure we're "missing" an entire two rows of aircraft and their pilots. I'd like them to be represented in some way for the 50th.

If you have pictures I can use, please email them to me at sandra@pit-lizards-ultd.net

For the professional photogs: If you give me permission to use a photo, you have my word it will only be used for the collage and then the digital deleted.

I'm hoping to have everything in by Thursday AM so I can have photos printed and the collage together to take to Stead on Friday morning.

I don't want pictures of just the airplanes, but candid shots of pilots and crew members that have passed. And if anyone has pictures of Art Scholl and other performers, that would be great too. So, if you have pictures of Levitz, Lloyd Hamilton, Crocker, Bud Fountain, Lefty, Cliff Cummins, the Red Baron, and any other aircraft, pilots and crew, please send them to me. Howard Pardue's daughter was kind enough to send me a dozen pictures of Howard, so I've got them posted on FB and have people voting because I couldn't decide which ones to use. lol

Thanks for your help. Without you, this won't happen.

P.S. I've been asked to add air race photographers as well. So if you've photos of fellow photographers who have passed away, please send those as well.

I've been asked what will happen with the collages after race weekend. NOTHING will be sold. Not the photos that I use, not copies of the collages. I don't intend to make copies of them. I'm going to offer the collages to Steve & Karen Hinton for the PoF museum. If they don't want them, I'll donate them to RARA.
