Howdy, Dave, and Thanx. Was a bit difficult ... they would shoot past me and within just a couple of seconds, as I spun to stay on them, the lighting changed dramatically because the setting sun went from in front of my left shoulder to coming from behind my right shoulder. It was a challenge that I enjoyed. If you have a sec or two tomorrow, check back in the evening. I'm going to post two, but because I'm hosting a visiting spotter during the day, I'll post one very early before I leave and the other later in the day when I get back home. Touching down only a few yards away; the wonderful aroma of burning rubber was all around (lol).

Outstanding series of shots given the lighting conditions! 5* Gary!

Gary, you're welcome and thanks for the backstory on these shots... and the Southwest N7820L landing at KRNO too. I'll be waiting to see the others not yet uploaded!!!

When I positioned here in the NTZ between 16R and 16L, I initially had concerns because the sun was going down just a bit to the left of this view which was going to create a strong backlighting situation. However, a few adjustments of the M settings to brighten up the shaded sides of the inbounds (which were facing me as each aircraft using 16R went past) served to decrease the "silhouetting" and resulted in good clean captures. Of course, with the wide-open light settings, I was very careful not to trigger the shutter for each brief instant when, while panning along as the birds came by, the camera was aimed directly at the sun . Overall, in over 90 minutes of clicking from this angle, the strong sunlight only caused me to lose seven shots (and no damage to the camera), so I was way happy with the location, and I'm going back to it again next month.

Hiho, Cliff. Sure did. As you know, I usually just do "one-a-day" posts, but for today and the next couple, I'm going "overboard" (lol) with two-a-day because the captures from this spot were super close. Also did some snapping from the catwalk on the top of the green end-of-approach / start-of-runway approach lights scaffold just near the 34L-16R overrun. Will share those some other time.
TYVM for your compli. Check out the other shot (SW) I'm putting up now. PS ... Click FULL on both for best Q.

This plane was flying over Detroit River in Detroit, Michigan. It is from the Yankee Air Museum at Willow Run Airport, in Belleville, Michigan. I shot this picture while standing on the Central (Miller) Parking Garage on June 26, 2017 while attending an event for the Ford Fireworks.

Gary, that's an "up close and personal" encounter in this superb photo capture!!!

Your proximity to the PAPI paid rich dividends!

Perfect!

Nice and close compared to my shot. Great shot.

I was in Windsor, but basically Michigan haha. I will keep an eye out for more of your photos. I will be uploading more as well.

Written on 2017/06/27 by Craig Hendry

Hey, you were in Detroit, Michigan also yesterday. I will upload some of my pictures from there as well.

Written on 2017/06/27 by curtisabolt

I was positioned between the parallels (16R and 16L) and just a few feet to the right of the PAPI (Precision Approach Path Indicators) for 16R. The location was absolutely perfect. Several arrivals touched down directly next to me.

Thanks David. Indeed it was. There are always plenty of other opportunities to see the Thunderbirds fly.

Fiona Hunt - This Air Canada Boeing 767-300 photo has an incorrect Canadian civil aircraft registration entered.

It should be C-FOCA, which corresponds to Air Canada's FIN (Fleet Identification Number) as marked on this aircraft, which is 640.

Here's the correctly identified photos of C-FOCA as showing on FlightAware:

Piedmont was bought by US Airways in 1989. US Airways merged into American Airlines in 2013.

John, you're very welcome and thanks for the kind words. David Gold is certainly one of only a few who can lay claim to ownership of a B-17!

Written on 2017/06/26 by cliff731

Thank you very much Cliffe l.learned very much from your posts..
Who would have thought the only B17 in U.K. is owned by David Gold!
Fair play.

This Bell 407 helicopter has flotation gear installed on its skids.

The FAA Registry indicates it belongs to the "Empire State" of New York... and the "Division of State Police".

Written on 2017/06/26 by cliff731

Rick... thanks very much for the kind words and I do enjoy your photos uploaded on the FA site. I hope you'll consider adding those single T-38 photo captures too.

By the way, that very nice Embraer EMB-135LR showing in the foreground would just so happen to be owned by and registered to McKee Foods of Collegedale, TN... the "Little Debbie" bakery folks!!!

Written on 2017/06/26 by cliff731

Yep. I've got some singles of them, and I may post them later. But I've already got several T-38 shots up on the HSV FlightAware page. Always appreciate your comments, Cliff!

A very nice photo capture of the B-17G, G-BEDF.

Here it is showing the port side's "Sally B" nose art.

The starboard side nose art of G-BEDF is painted as the "Memphis Belle".

Written on 2017/06/26 by cliff731

A very nice close-up view of G-BEDF, showing the starboard side "Memphis Belle" nose art.

This B-17 was originally assigned USAAF s/n 44-85784, as a Lockheed-Vega built B-17G-105-VE with c/n 8693, according to Joe Baugher's published information.

Mr. Baugher further provides this additional history:

"B-17G built by Lockheed-Vega Airplane Company as part of pooled production... converted to EB-17G and to ETB-17G. Sold to Institut Geographique National of France as F-BGSR. Sold to American users as N17TE but never taken to USA. Moved to Britain and re-registered as G-BEDF. Currently flying as *Sally B* with B-17 Preservation Ltd of Duxford with false tail number 124485 (Memphis Belle). Used in remake of film *Memphis Belle*".

Richard is correct. If you look at some of the other photos, you can clearly see that it's a DC-10-30 as it does not have the MD11 winglets.

Written on 2017/06/25 by Brian Carlin

John mcGeoghan - I believe there is one (1) example of a B-17 showing in the U.K. Civil registry... "G-BEDF", which is a B-17G model.

From the U.K. Civil Aviation Authority website:
