Note: Taken at the 2006 Goodyear Balloon and Air Spectacular held at Goodyear Municipal Airport! I dedicate this shot to my Grandfather, who is the inspiration for this shot as he helped to defend freedom during WWII in this type of aircraft! ...
Note: You would think that there would not be that many swimming pools in people's backyards in the Buffalo area! This shot proves otherwise! WN flt 2768 turns base for rwy 32 at BUF over Cheektowaga with a large number of swimming pools shown
Note: This shot was taken from inside the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum looking out to one of the cargo ramps at the Hamilton Airport. In the background, are another CargoJet 727, a UPS 757, and some storm clouds
Note: Canyon Blue as seen in a somewhat happier setting just days before it had a televised emergency landing at LAX on 9-21-05 after it's nose gear malfunctioned. Fortunately, it appears everybody made it out okay. I give some serious props...
Note: The skies in the background are an angry pink as we get ready to push flt 553. My only regret is that there wasn't any lightning in the background, but I figured this might do. Shortly after we pushed this bird off of our gate, it began...
Note: After flying around the field for all to see at the Geneseo Airshow, this Harvard is taxiing back to her position on the "ramp" where fellow jp.net photographer, and current co-worker, Marty McGuire guided her to her spot on the grounds. ...
Note: The Rising Sun is affixed just under the cockpit 18 times showing that this a/c had some experience during WWII. Let's just hope that after all of the events of today are done, we can all stop putting kill markers on every plane out there...
Note: Here's a front to back view of the C-47 that was fully furnished like a penthouse before the inspection that fellow jp.net photographer (and current co-worker) Marty McGuire talked about! I say that if you're gonna furnish something like...
Note: Here's the C-47 that was temporarily turned into a flying house for a short time before the inside was gutted for the Geneseo Airshow! Now it's providing shade for those in attendance who have decided not to take the heat! Oh by the way,...
Note: For whatever reason, I absolutely love the new c/s that UPS has. It'd be nice if they could bring a few more of these to The BUF from time to time. As far as I know, this is the first time for this beauty (or is it a beautiful beast) in...
Note: Ahhhh yes!! Nothing like that new airplane smell (which for me is "heaven on earth")!! This new "semi-grouper" paid its first visit (as far as I know) to The BUF. This one is getting ready to go out as flt 553 to ATL on a hot and hazy...
Note: This shot taken about 2030 on a clear evening at The BUF! Note that there are no a/c at all in this shot. This was taken just ahead of the evening rush of inbound flights. Hey Mac, can we get a few airplanes here please?
