When I received an enquiry from Cindy asking me if I was interested to photograph the landing of the last flight of her pilot husband, I could not say no! UPS Pilot Captain Dave Driscoll is retiring after a long and successful career flying planes for UPS and as a tribute to his distinguished career, UPS arranged a water canon salute as his flight arrives in Memphis Airport.
I reach the UPS facility early morning, finish the security process and a UPS vehicle escorts me to the runway where family, friends and colleagues of Capt Driscoll are waiting. Soon the flight lands and the water salute begins. This has been an amazing experience for me photographing this unique event. You can see a few photos here.
Are you a pilot, retiring soon and want to memorialize this occasion with photographs? Talk to me!
