“Always Forward”

The Composition The idea behind this composition was to bridge the past with the present. This piece is actually two photographs digitally stitched together. The singular element that allowed both photographs to meld is the damaged B-24 Liberator in the background. It is only fitting that the bomber became the linkage in this artistic endeavor as our unit today has ties to both fighters (302d Fighter Squadron) and bombers (our numerical designation namesake, 477th). Combining these photographs paint the picture of what it was like to fly and maintain planes of WWII in a deployed location.
