Poetry in motion - great catch.

Written on 05/24/2022 by Gavin Hughes

Certainly worth the wait and a great shot to celebrate the occasion.

Written on 05/24/2022 by Gavin Hughes

Brilliant Uwe. An interesting background you've got for a while.

Written on 05/24/2022 by Gavin Hughes

Wow, at least one saved from the scrap heap. Most interesting attempt at a water operable jet fighter.

Written on 05/24/2022 by Gavin Hughes

Superb shot - perfection in motion.

Braving the conditions I see John - neat set of pics.

The FAA...look up there in the sky, is it bird, is it a plane, no it's a...a...uh, dunno what it is.

Men like fighter planes, including me.

I learned to fly in this very airplane in 1968. I was a member of a flying club at Tri State College in Angola, Indiana. Rented it for $5.00 per hour, wet. Can never do that again!. This was my favorite bird! Will dig up and post some pictures of it during that time.

Gulfstream 550

Thanks, Robin! But these days only two Mi-24 were participating, so you're right - two in a row.

This is an experimental electric powered aircraft built by Beta in Vermont. Laughing at the FAA since the registration certificate classifies it as a balloon.

Thank you Gav!

Thanks guys!

Written on 05/23/2022 by Hensley Garcia

Thank goodness for those dedicated to keep these pieces of history flying and thank goodness for the good photographers such as you who get good photos of them.

Written on 05/22/2022 by Gavin Hughes

Thanks John. What a pity it doesn't/can't fly. Still you can't have everything and at least you get to see it. (Checked out your other pics).

Written on 05/22/2022 by Gavin Hughes

I note your usual standard of excellence with your latest pics Daniel. Always a pleasure to see.

Written on 05/22/2022 by Gavin Hughes

What a superb set of pics TM but I love this in the 'spotlight'. Well done.

Making a low pass over the crowd during the 'Wings Over Solano 2022' Event at Travis AFB.

Written on 05/22/2022 by Gary Schenauer

Thanks Gavin and agreed. I am glad to see 747 service back here at Logan.

Thank You Uwe!

Gavin, no, this airframe is not "Operational" in terms of transporting people. It is actively used as a mx training aid for A&P technicians/students at Vincennes University which has an aviation college extension facility/hangar at the IND airport here. This beauty pops out of the hangar a couple of times a year. She is in immaculate condition on the inside as well. I think I have some flight deck photos posted on FlightAware. Thanks Gavin!

It's quite easy to visualize the bombs dropping out of the racks and falling away from Semper Fi's belly.

Gavin ... Yep, the sun is not in an optimal location. Travis has parallel runways (21L-3R and 21R-3L); however, although they ARE parallel, they are offset. 21R actually begins just east of where 21L ends (at the 3R end of the other runway). When Travis has its Open House events, the crowds are permitted on to the apron that is east of runway 21R-3L because that runway is closest to the apron; thus, the takeoffs, landings, flyovers, and flybys all are performed on - and over - that runway. In the early morning, the sun comes up in the SE but by the time the opening ceremonies take place and the air performances begin at 11 AM, the sun is high and a bit SW of 21R-3L ... while the public is on the apron just east of that runway with the sun above (and in front of) them. So, as you noted here, when the air performers pass by, the shaded (unlit) side of their aircraft often faces the crowd as seen here. There isn't anything that can be done about it so photogs just have to compensate. Later in the afternoon, after 2:30 PM or so and until the event closes, the sun has moved more to the WNW and better illuminates the performing aircraft.

very nice Leland!!

Written on 05/22/2022 by Uwe Zinke

Once you’re flying, might as well raise the gear if there’s not enough runway in front of you to land and stop.

Written on 05/22/2022 by Peter Fuller

nice shot John!!

Written on 05/22/2022 by Uwe Zinke

I thought it was two aircraft, but, it's three in a row on taxi ramp. Cool catch!

Written on 05/22/2022 by Robin Rebhan

Thanx, Gav.
(And as an added bit of info .... Maj Wolfe was assigned as the USAF's F-35 Demo Team Commander in 2020 and is the first female to ever be appointed to that position. And I like her name >>> "Beo" Wolfe.))

Written on 05/22/2022 by Gary Schenauer

Thanks Jeffrey! I believe N501DA and N502DX operated out of BOS on 5/20/22.

Heavenly picture

As an additional note about this photo: My EYES might be fooling me????

Written on 05/22/2022 by dicky11

I'm pretty Damn Sure B212's have TWO engines, namely PW PT6T-3. This picture is of a B205 or UH-1H with tall skids. I know this aircraft is under the flaws of the FA nomenclature & I believe the serial number also belongs to a B212 but this is not it. Someone help figure this registration out. Maybe call Eagle Copters.

Written on 05/22/2022 by dicky11

Size matters, this 747 looks weird. I like the full size ones, this one is too short.

Written on 05/22/2022 by Micky ch

Thank You for the comment/vote and yes there are small aircraft out there.
