Photoshoot from the Belly of a Warbird

Air-to-air photos taken from inside a TBM-3 Avenger catch pilots from Spruce Creek Fly-In flying in formation.

Photographer Gary Rosier lay "bent up like a pretzel" in the belly of a TBM-3 Avenger to get these shots from the window below the gunner turret, making for a unique perspective. "Very windy and noisy, but so cool!" Rosier said.
