Warbirds through a boy’s eyes

Published September 15, 2019 / by Steve Berentson

What an unforgettable day I had Saturday with my 9-year-old grandson Jake at a “Warbirds Weekend” event hosted by the Heritage Flight Museum. Jake and I shot hundreds of photos during a series of flights featuring vintage aircraft. Pictured here is Jake’s awesome shot of a T-6 Texan and an A6M2 Zero replica flying past the hangar in close formation. Pilots were brothers Greg and Alan Anders, sons of museum founder Bill Anders, who also flew that day. To enjoy more of Jake’s photos of the Texan and the Zero, go to “In the News” section of this website under “Warbird through a boy’s eyes.”

About Steve Berentson
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
