Picture of the Week
It's not often we pick a 40-year-old photo as a winner but Robert E. Hall has shared a rather remarkable experience in his life and this is undoubtedly only one of dozens of photographic treasures in his copyrighted album. A PR mission to fly the flag (in the form of custom-painted A-4s) over every major national park must have been a great way to spend springtime in America in the bicentennial year of 1976. Thanks for sharing Robert.
A-4 Special Mission
In April of 1976, I led four A-4 Skyhawks on cross country to photograph aircraft with a bi-centennial paint job in front of every major U.S. national park. The above photo is one that I took from my A-4 aircraft while flying wing on the aircraft in front of Mt. Rushmore. Copyrighted photo by Robert E. Hall.
