Canadair Challenger (N5G)


"Priester Five" (PWA 5) is captured here blazing by just a few feet away from my spotting position on taxiway Charlie as it climbs away from Reno Tahoe International's 16L to make a short midmorning flight to Concord, CA (KCCR).

This is an absolutely gorgeous Challenger, and for the first time in over a week the sky was cloudless and blue and the morning sun was in a perfect location. The conditions could not have been any better to get outstanding clicks of this fabulous aircraft as it came screaming past me.

Great snap Gary! 5*****
"5" stars on this one, Gary... and a fairly new registration change on this aircraft for N5G.
Nice Pic, thanks for shearing...

Awesome picture Gary! I was the Captain on this flight. Was wondering if I might be able to contact you regarding getting the file for getting the picture printed, etc.

Roy, Greg, Dave, Cliff, Sparkie, and Ryan T.... Your comments & complis are very much appreciated, guys. TYVM. (Wave)
Ryan T. >> Twenty-eight photos in the complete set ... taxiing past me on Charlie; then approaching, passing, and climbing away from me while departing on 16L. All shots are in both max res JPEG (original right from the card - unedited) and also RAW data formats. Saved on recordable disk for you. Also, signed photographer's release authorizing your full use of all photos on the disc. Email me at with a snail mail addy and it will be enroute to you within 72 hours. Glad you liked this shot -- you'll like the next two in the series after this one -- just the Challenger and the Sierra Nevada -- no terminal or ground objects. That is one awesome aircraft!!!! (Tip of my spotter's cap to you)
