Operation Snowbird Continues at DM

Two more snowbird squadrons are schedule to visit Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson, Arizona for training over the next few months. The squadrons and dates are as follows:

April 6, 2014 through April 18, 2014 – 12 F-16’s from the Texas Air National Guard

April 23, 2014 through May 17, 2014 – 10 A-10’s from the Michigan Air National Guard

During Operation Snowbird, Davis-Monthan AFB hosts squadrons that are based in locations that can have winter climates that are not ideal for flying. Operation Snowbird gives participating squadrons a chance to fly under the more ideal weather conditions of Arizona, while taking advantage of Davis-Monthan AFB’s close proximity to gunnery and bombing ranges.

Steven is from Long Island, New York and now resides in sunny Mesa, Arizona. Steven’s love for aviation began when he was a child with a fascination for WWII aircraft. This love of aviation was further fostered by his uncle, a long-time Trans World Airlines (TWA) employee who had a passion for all forms of aviation.

Steven’s interest in photography began when he was 16 years old when he received his first SLR camera, a Minolta XGA. It makes sense that eventually his passion for aviation and photography would merge into a love for aviation photography.

In addition to being the web designer, webmaster and chief editor of Aviation Photography Digest, Steven has been published in numerous magazines worldwide.

Steven has an M.S. from Boston University and uses Nikon photographic equipment.

Steven is a Nikon NPS Titanium member.
