When it comes to capturing planes mid-flight or spinning your way through propeller smoke rings, taking shots at dusk when shadows cast across control towers like swift lines sketched with chalk on graffitied canvas--mastering that perfect camera angle is what makes for stunning airplane photos. From military and commercial airplanes to helicopters and gliders. For this photo contest, we invited you to show us how you capture aircraft in a creative way with chances to win a Vanguard camera backpack and more.
