Very impressive close-up.

Incredible! With all those birds around!

That is a BEAUTIFUL Seabee!!! I owned a Seabee in the early 70's and still have a soft spot in my heart for the type. This seaplane has all the good stuff. Wide spray rails, extended wings, Dobbinspeck wingtips and best of all a GSO-480 instead of the Franklin. I wonder if the inside is as nice as the outside.

Crisp and clear shot of this deadly beauty.

My all time favorite aircraft! I too was at that air show and took several shots with my brand new Olympus OM-1, none of which could rival your shot as I was just learning how to use that totally manual SLR 35mm film camera.

I also had the pleasure of working on the Space Shuttle Program for the last 20 years, 1991 -2011. I operated and maintained the shuttle simulator at NASA Ames in Mt. View, CA. I had the pleasure of meeting and working with all of the fight crew astronauts. Three training periods every year, all the astronauts would fly out from Houston to practice landing the shuttle in our simulator. They practiced approach, landings and roll-outs normal landings day & night at several different landing sites. But they also practiced emergency landings such as blown tires, brake failures, gear collapse, icy runways, partial drag chute failures, and others. That was the highlight of my career. The shuttle retired in 2011. And It just wasn’t very exciting after that. I retired one year later. We were lucky, Will. We got to play a small part of one of mankind's greatest achievements. I still miss that.

Music from the scenes of the Deathstar in Star Wars movies plays in my head when I look at this picture.

Excellent photo. Evokes quite an emotional response!

Fantastic shot!!!

Written on 08/17/2018 by Helio Bastos Salmon

As a layperson, this plane just looks wrong. Its fat little body looks like it's in its 2nd trimester, and the back wheels are at an odd angle, which is disconcerting. Those slanty engines on top of the wings (aren't engines supposed to be under???) are plain scary. I'd never fly in that thing.

Great shot though!

Written on 08/17/2018 by Nat Sam

I could write an entire chapter of a novel just using that shot as a starter alone! 5 stars!

Written on 08/17/2018 by Nat Sam

Great shot, Peter Thomas! Love those Boeings. Such beautiful birds.

Looks like a -200 to me also; round #2 inlet vs. slight oval on -100.

Saw one of these take off at Beale back in 1973 (74?). After clearing the airfield, it went into what was very close to a totally vertical climb and was quickly a disappearing speck in the blue sky. Awesome!

Written on 08/17/2018 by Neil Klapthor

Fixed. Thanks!

Written on 08/17/2018 by Eric Davis

Eric - I think you have a "typo" on this one. It is a 172N Skyhawk from 1977... :-)

Before the first glide flight of the Enterprise, the four NASA astronaut pilots who would be conducting those flights spent time in the KC-135 Flt Sim at Barksdale AFB, La. I was assigned to that simulator. Col Fullerton, senior pilot of the group, was the only one of the four to have experience flying anything larger than a fighter. With his time flying the KC-135 he felt it would be an ideal training aid and the pilots used a NASA bird at Edwards. But to get the others familiar with the plane, they needed trainer time. For months we kept a weekly block on our schedule for them and they would fly in from Houston, spend up to four hours in our sim (or CPT, really), then fly on to Edwards and get some time in the real thing. We really enjoyed meeting them and being a small part of the program. NASA started using our sim for more projects after that, including the testing of winglets on aircraft. For a period between 1976 and 1980 NASA test pilots, veterans of the YF-12 program, according to their shoulder patches, would fly in from Houston once a week and use the sim, then they would conduct tests with a KC-135 fitted with winglets.

Number 17 is a Grumman F4F; #54 is a TBM or TBF -- insufficient markings to be certain
