Breaking Free – The Aerial Photography of Judson P. Brohmer
This collection of internationally celebrated aerial photography represents the legacy of Judson Brohmer, one of the top aerial photographers in the world. Judson Brohmer began compiling this book himself before he was killed in an F-16 photo chase mission for the US Air Force on July 17, 2001. His friends, some of the best test pilots in the world, comment on his photographs and on the most advanced machinery ever flown.
This book gives a glimpse of the amazing relationship between the pilots, the machines, and the artist with a camera. Their teamwork, trust in one another’s skills, passion for flying and for excellence bind them together. They challenge us to break free from mediocrity, dare to pursue our dreams with passion, live our lives to the fullest, and leave behind a legacy that points to something higher than ourselves.
Breaking Free covers some of the most advanced machinery ever flown: X-35, F/A-22, F-16, F-15, F-117, SR-71, B1-B, B2, and many others. Also includes a fully mastered DVD of breath-taking aviation footage narrated by the best test pilots in the world, never before released to the public.
