My son is a pilot for the US Marine Corps. He just finished his training and is now certified to fly the Cobra helicopter. I’m documenting his journey and experiences in beautiful albums from K and Co.
Here are three simple pages from one of his Marine photo albums.
His Primary and Advanced flight training took place at NAS Whiting Field in Pensacola, Florida. We took this picture when we went to his winging ceremony. The Florida map is from a free doodlebat font called Ding Maps available here and here. (and lots of other places too. Just do a google search on Ding Maps font.)
Next is a title page for the photos he had from his Primary Flight training, where the pilots train on fixed-wing airplanes. The marines are not permitted to bring cameras in the aircraft, so I asked him what the name of the plane was that he was flying. Then I did a google image search and found this fantastic photo! I downloaded it and printed it out. The map is an outdated, obsolete flight map that was headed for recycling.
This last page is an example of how to include memorabilia on a scrapbook page. Before the winging ceremony, the pilots can have their wings blessed in a special service. This is the title page for the photos we took during the Blessing of the Wings. The stained-glass window in the chapel was so beautiful and unique! Where else but on a military base would you see Jesus sharing the stage with ships and planes?
