Classic Aircraft Photography

Took this photo at the Military Aviation Museum in the USA to thank the owner of the museum and aircraft Jerry Yagen for all of the photo flights I was able to do there over a five year period.
From left is an Fw 190A-8N, Me 262 and a Mk IX Spitfire, the photo was taken from a Grumman Avenger.

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

Air Chief Marshall (Rtd) Mark Binskin made his debut flying the Canberra:

Interesting it was with a Canberra given his background was with A-4s and Mirages and indeed, the Canberra had left service before he joined the RAAF.

Mind you, Mark Skidmore flew the Boxkite and it was well before his time ;)

I knew they were running out of space for new airports but to put one BETWEEN the buildings ???

Yeah, and then having to hoist the aircraft up to their 23rd floor hangar space  :P

Well, Skates was an F-111 Pilot and has flown the Meteor........


The Vampire was also due to fly until they had a problem.

On a test flight apparently a fire extinguisher came loose and punched a hole and started a fire.......

Phoenix International, just to the left of 'downtown'.  Calgary is getting nearly as bad.

Yep, and was a test pilot.  Mind you chatting with him a few years ago he said that the box kite was the scariest thing he has ever flown.

Jupiter last night - the small black dot on the left is the shadow of Ganymede (first moon visible on the right) the other moon further out is Io. The pinkish spot on the lower right limb is the Great Red Spot. It was cool (57F/14C) last night but starting to get foggy and the atmosphere wasn't very steady, so the image is a little fuzzier than normal. Taken with a Celestron Nexstar 6SE and a small astro camera. The faint square pattern on Jupiter is an artifact of the image processing:
