These photographs were taken around the world by Bill Stafford, retired President of the Trade Development Alliance of Greater Seattle.  Stafford has traveled the globe in his work positioning the region as an international leader. Since his retirement in 2011 from the Trade Alliance, Bill has led photographic tours to Cambodia, Vietnam, Nepal and India. Bill is now a senior consultant with Nyhus Communications, a Senior Advisor to the Trade Alliance and a Board Member for the Future of Flight Foundation.

The photos in this show represent countries that bring visitors to the Future of Flight, countries where our region has business relations and in whose skies our locally manufactured planes are found. They are part of a collection previously exhibited at the MOHAI Museum in Seattle and the Reykjavik Cultural Festival in Iceland.
