Aviation Photos 6

Continued from Aviation Photos 5.

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.



Fryeburg, Maine

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.



Chino, California

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.

Very nice photos. Also check out the film "Wings of Their Own" about girls who fly.

Mary, the film looks good, judging by the short clip I saw on the website. Here in Singapore, the barriers women are facing in the aviation sector are slowly erroding though our flag carrier, Singapore Airlines still hold on to antiquated notions and does not employ women on the flightdeck. I hope that policy changes soon. All the very best on your film.

Wow! I love the photos Mr Sanguine. They are of such great quality that I can only aspire to, at this stage ;-)
