Vantage Point: The aviation photography of Jon Pece

Spirit over Kansas. This B-2 refueled with us on a training mission over Kansas. The contrast is somewhat low...maybe because this is a low visibility aircraft. Nikon D800, 24-70mm. Photo and caption by Jon Pece

What are your thoughts on the new era of drone photography? Do you think drones will ever be able to replace photographers as well as pilots?

The perspective of a small recreational drone differs greatly from that of an airplane, and it opens up so many exciting possibilities to photographers for a fraction of the price and complexity of a manned aircraft. I can't imagine many people lining up for flight on a pilotless aircraft any time soon, but I can imagine unmanned aircraft filling many roles yet to be imagined.
