I am a lifetime EAA member who lives in Alabama. I recently got engaged and in the wedding planning, the topic of what to do for the engagement pictures came up. As i live and breath aviation (i have been flying since 13 and my senior pics were with the172 i was flying), my fiancee came up with the idea of doing photos at an airport with a vintage aircraft and us in period attire. This was a great idea as the airport my plane (Cessna 172A) is based at is a grass strip with a wealth of vintage aircraft. The problem we soon came to find was that as the wedding is in Indianapolis, so is our photographer. It is not feasible for the photographer to come to Alabama or for one of the local vintage planes to go to Indiana.
I was wondering if anyone knows of someone who has a vintage aircraft within an hour and a half or so of Indianapolis that might be interested in helping? I would expect to compensate them for the use of their aircraft. Here we were looking at using a Stearman, but any WWII or pre WWII aircraft in good condition would work great!
Thank you for your help!

See www.amhf.org. This is one of only three aircraft ever to be on the national register of historic places.
