About the photographers

  Bruce L. Vinal Jr.

Bruce  has had a passion for both photography and aviation since the early 1970's. Bruce would frequently ride his bike from his home in Acton Ma. to Minuteman Airfield in Stow to watch the airplanes take off and land. When Bruce received a film developing kit as a gift the families bathroom was quickly turned into a makeshift darkroom.
  Today his Father, Bruce Sr. and his Son, Bruce III are both fixed wing pilots and he  is a student helicopter pilot. Through close relationships developed over the years with pilots in the airshow industry as well as the Military Bruce has had the opportunity to fly in and photograph a wide variety of aircraft.
  With friends and family having served our country in WWII, Bruce is particularly interested in photographing Warbirds. Capturing images of these National Treasures on the ground, or in the air whenever possible, for future generations. 

 Bruce's photos and writing has been featured in several aviation publications including - The Atlantic Flyer, Sport Aviation, Smithsonian Air and Space On Line and Siivet Wings Magazine including two cover shots.    Contact Bruce

Bruce In His Element

Bruce L. Vinal III

Bruce knew aviation would play an important  role in his life  from the first time he took charge of an airplane. At the age of 13 Bruce took a Young Eagles flight at the Fitchburg Airport (KFIT) and shortly thereafter began taking lessons, soloing on his 16th Birthday.

In the Fall of 2014, Bruce entered the aviation program at Bridgewater State University and quickly earned his private Pilots Certificate. In the Summer between his Freshmen and Sophomore years Bruce is working towards his Instrument rating putting him one step closer to his goal of becoming a commercial pilot.

   Bruce  also attends airshows and fly-ins with his Dad and has begun to take on a bigger role in the photography end of Aerial Perspectives. We look forward to Bruce one day piloting the photo ship for our Air to Air work.
