This is the infamous N757A “Catfish”, the first Boeing 757 ever built, later extensively modified for use by Lockheed Martin as an F-22 sensor and avionics testbed. It’s been on my “to catch” list forever, so it felt really great to shoot it landing at PMD yesterday.






Now we need matching picture of the CATBird, the sensor and avionics testbed for the F-35.

Not sure what's happening there Carl, but the top two photos are just all plain grey  ???

Okay. How about now?

 :smiley: all showing now Carl.

Interesting bit about the Catfish being the first 757. Didn't know that.  :smiley:
Apparently BPK/BigPlaneKits is about to release a 1/144 757 from new moulds. Jolly good news. I was secretly (or not so secretly) hoping for Zvezda, but... hey... any new 757 is more than welcome.

Also, here's the Chinese testbed for their J-20 (which is kinda the Chinese F-22 equivalent), using a Tu 204 (which is kinda a Soviet/Russian B757 equivalent) as a basis.

Is that low "nap of the earth" flying or very fast taxi-ing?

I've checked my end, it looks fine (I mean, for someone of my years)  ;)

It might depend on the browser. I don't see photos on this page if I use Firefox.
I happen to have Opera and MS Edge, too, and they display the photos OK

Thanks perttime ... not displaying in Firefox would explain it. (Someone had mentioned Facebook before and I'd wondered if it was that.)

But then, to be perverse, Carl's "binary Voodoo" shows up just fine  ;D
