Note: Seen here is a unique overview, taken from atop the SIA Cargo building: Right to left: the LAX lights, the old tower, the "Theme Building", and 'new' tower, all under a typically beautiful SoCal sunset. Seen in the foreground on the...
Note: This F-16AM comes back from one of the most thrilling performances I have seen to date. These officers really know how to put on a great show for the crowd, demonstrating their great skill, daring, and control of this craft.
Note: Not the vapor fest that we had in '07, but this F/A-18C did its best to show us that Prandtl–Glauert singularity, or vapor cone as some would call it. Interesting effects as well can be seen on the tops of both cones: rainbow coloured...
Note: Seen taking off for the flyby that would include a B-1, a B-52, a C-130, a KC-135, a C-17, 2 F-16s, a T-28, a F-22...WOW. This is strangely my very first BUFF launch shot. What a day. This marks my 500th shot for JP's DB. What a great...
Note: Now on static display at the Century Circle area just outside the west gate of the base, this very first YC-15, predecessor to the C-17, sits awash in the glow of a glorious sunrise here in the cold, cold desert.
Note: Part of the SAR from Yuma MCAS, this HH-1N is seen here during a demo of a pickup of an injured comrade. The medic actually 'flies' under the bird, using his arms to stabilize him/herself so that they and the basket carrying the injured...
Note: Painted to look like a Japanese torpedo bomber, this Texan flies past the "Wall of Fire", which was supposed to break a world record...10,000 feet long, 40 metres high, and burn for 5 seconds...don't think it quite made it, as this one did...
Note: Not often seen together flying in formation, let alone doing a break just before landing in the evening sun lit up from below by the cold, hard desert. Seen here are 2 of the 4 'bones' which participated in the 09-02 Red Flag event. On...
Note: Not often does one get to see what is behind the curtain on a Raptor. Seen here on the ramp at Nellis, she undergoes some TLC. The OT designation seems to put her at U.S. Air Force Air Warfare Center, Nellis AFB, Nev. (ACC), but there...
Note: Seen during Red Flag 09-02, This B1-B, which was converted to a block D, launches from 3R with full burners. Seconds later, those of us who were 150 feet off of the runway were bathed in the very hot exhaust...kinda nice on this cold,...
Note: Under extremely rare conditions here at KLAX, this original ATA plane, then Delta plane is seen here vacating 25R with a very faint rainbow behind her. We had really heavy rains here, which caused these beautiful conditions.
Note: First shot on JP.net in her new colours. New to this airline, she is seen here vacating 25R bound for the Far East. Nice to see this one flying out of KLAX. Formerly JA402A, and then for a very short time N200FQ, she is now seen here in...
Note: This F-15E-47-MC Strike Eagle, seen launching from 3R under full afterburner for an afternoon Red Flag 09-01 sortie, is based out of SJ (Seymour Johnson) NC. She is part of the Strike Eagle 4th Fighter Wing based there.
Note: Now this one is great...Wearing the number 402 on her nose(which has nothing to do with the reg), and with only a smudge of a logo for the squadron markings (VX-30 Bloodhounds, based out of KNTD), she apparently was used for the Blue...
Note: A closer look at this plane on the day of her ultimate death. She is rolled a bit to port due to the fact that the wings have been torn from her. All salvageable parts have been removed, and just the bits that are no longer good remain. ...
Note: One of the very last pictures we will see of this plane, as she was cut up today. On the left the jaws of doom rip a massive piece of aluminum from the upper fuselage, having already dispatched the wings, and the mid portion of what once...
