I woke up this morning to a nice surprise, one of my older (Aug 2004) aerial photos being used for a news story about a fleet of UK Tornadoes being sent to aid in the fight against ISIS.

This happens from time to time when there is a military aircraft related story.  Sometimes you're given credit, sometimes not, but it's very cool to see my imagery still getting some play some 10 years later.  Here's another one from earlier in the year:

The images also pop up in books and magazines:

And have even made the cover of a set of DVD's:

They also pop up often in military and aviation related blogs and forums and I've even seen clocks and other merchandise with my photos being sold throughout the web.  I'd love to say I'm making some decent money off these, but since they were taken during my military career, they are the property of the DoD.  

Oh well.

It's still cool to see and I'd like to think it's a testament to the quality of the work I did then that the imagery is still relevant today.  Thats what I'm going to tell myself anyway!

Here's a gallery with more of my aerial work, including some of the images seen above:
