Mike Lynaugh has once again set out on a journey of over 6,000 miles capturing images of some of America’s greatest aviators. This year Mike’s travels brought him up and down the East Coast and to some of the premiere aviation events in this part of the globe.
This book is a visual diary of the places Mike has traveled to, and the people he has met over this past year. The pages enclosed within capture the spirit of aviators past and present who have demonstrated their skills in pushing the limits of both their aircraft, and human endurance.
For over a century, aviators have taken to the skies to showcase their mastery, entertain those who share a fascination of flight, and to defend our freedom over battlefields far from home.
This book is intended to be an extension of that passion of flight. Please take a look back through the past year and relive the memories as seen through Mike’s eyes.
From 2001 - 2005, Mike lived in Washington, D.C and photographed some of the most powerful people in the world as a photojournalist covering events at the White House, Pentagon on Capitol Hill. He has been a witness to history, and privileged to be able to record it through his lens. Mike currently lives in Akron, Ohio with his wife Kristie where he freelances for multiple news organizations. Mike is a credentialed photojournalist and an active member of the White House News Photographers Association.
