Some of my favorite aviation photos from the year.

First one is of the B-17 Sentimental Journey, which has been in a few WWII movies.  I converted this one to a black and white photo and was selected by Arizona Highways Magazine Facebook page for their Friday Fotos.  This was taken at the Luke Air Force Base air show during the Tora! Tora! Tora! demonstration, replicating the attack on Pearl Harbor.
