If there is one universal truth to working in the field, no matter which field that is, it’s that camera gear gets dirty. We try our best but it ends up happening no matter what. Fingerprints, smudges, oil, sunblock or whatever it’s always something. Well when it comes to working with planes it’s usually oil, […]
