Aviation Photos 6
Today's theme is... pictures of airplanes facing to my left.
Newark, New Jersey
A lot of folks ask if I snapped this shot while the airplane was in the air. If that were true, I'd have been hanging onto the rear of its engine while the airplane cruised at 35,000ft and this blog would not be in existence.
Oftentimes, while on vacation, I like to pop by small regional airfields to see what sort of stuff I can find. The owl perched on top of this Grumman Tiger's prop caught my eye.
An old DC-3 painted in the livery of Pacific Southwest sits derelict on the ramp of Chino Airport. I love these classic transports.
Los Angeles, California
Wish I could've traded places with the photographer at the white car you see at the edge of the runway. Chose the right spot where this heavy Eva Air B747-400 chose to rotate on its long haul towards Taipei.
More to come.
