Tora, Tora, Tora, 50 Years Later

Airplane Photo

  • Venue:   Kalamazoo Battle Creek International Airport
  • Location:   Kalamazoo, Michigan

Its Pearl Harbor all over again as (4) replica Japanese Zero's bear down on the flight line at the annual “High On Kalamazoo” airshow in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Put on by the Confederate Air Force, the “Tora, Tora, Tora” show recreates important air battles of WWII complete with vintage WWII warbirds as well as replica Japanese airplanes. The replicas were built from post-WWII vintage North American T-6 Texan trainers.

This particular photo was printed on matte paper, which leaves a slight ripple pattern in the scanned image. The GIF-conversion software seems to have picked up this pattern which resulted in the speckles in the image. The original photo is much clearer and sharper.
