This collection of photographs were taken during the production of the feature length film, FLYING BOAT.
In FLYING BOAT, pilots and mechanics are brought together who have restored, fly, and maintain the last few airworthy examples of the flying boat, a magnificent aircraft from a long lost era of adventure and romance. The aircraft featured were restored and brought back to flying condition after being decommissioned and sitting in neglect for decades in the Tucson, AZ desert known as the Boneyard. These aviators share a camaraderie and reflect upon their experiences and aspirations as to why they fly them today. With the capabilities of landing and taking off on open ocean, land, and even snow and ice, these venerable machines inspire dreams and speak to fantasy.
