The ideal is to shoot from a platform that has a removable door, window, or in the case of the B-25, a removable gunner's tail cone-and yes, I am harnessed in. The B-25 has two additional shooting positions-from the removable emergency hatch located behind the wing and from the nose gunner's position, where you must shoot through glass. Shooting through glass limits the quality and angle options. When you shoot through windows you must keep the camera nearly perpendicular to the glass to minimize distortion and reflections, and wear dark clothes and dark gloves. The B-25 is the ultimate photo platform because it flies at about 170 kts, which is fast enough for any corporate jet to keep up with and still maintain a clean wing, without forward slats deployed or flaps needed to slow-fly with the B-25. The B-25, or platform plane, is usually in the lead. The job of the pilot of the lead plane is to work the radios, fly smoothly, and not run into anything out there that might ruin your day-towers, another airplane, cumulo-granite etc. The job of the target plane, or the plane that has formed-up on the lead plane, is to not run into the lead.
