    I was working on this composite last fall and the whole while was thinking of a friend I had known at the Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome for the past 30+ years. He had been diagnosed with stomach cancer and the outcome was certain. When an aviator dies, they are said to have gone West. The base photo was taken facing west, so the Aerodrome's Spirit of St Louis replica was headed west, through the storm but you can clearly see smoother skies coming. It seemed like a metaphor for his struggles, stormy skies but death would bring calm and peace. A few days later, I learned of his passing......on the day and near the time I was working on this shot. I've dedicated it him, smooth skies and tailwinds, Jim!
