For the 2018 calendar edition it was decided to expand the lineup to include male pilots. The aim was to make a calendar with twelve pilots who had all battled with cancer in some way. Unfortunately the project had to be put on hold, as the organisation became unmanageable due to cancer affecting several members of the organising committee once more.
Eight of the pilot portraits were scheduled to be made in Las Vegas by a fellow pilot who was also a photographer, with the remaining four being produced in Belgium by me. Since I had already scheduled one of the portraits with Julien, we went ahead and did the shoot anyway.
