      He’s wearing a parachute. No big deal.

    • Rick T says:

      The pant legs don’t look windblown and the parachute on the guy in back should be blown up on his back. Plus, no exhaust plume from the engine.

      Something about Aviation Photographer’s Mates will do anything to get a picture???

      Staged on the ground.

    One of my favorite stories about the early days of the Pacific theater in WWII, was the story of a J2 nicknamed ‘The Candy Clipper’ rescuing boys from Corregidor right under the enemy guns!

    Too bad I never learned how to fly, I always wanted to fly a Grumman amphib, either a Goose or a Duck like this one.

    Nice example of darkroom magic.

    Since the first enlargers, clever people have been able to do fun shit like that.

    Hell, even I could superimpose images when I had my darkroom. Nothing that nice, though.
