Aviation Nation 2009 – More Pics From Another Great Day
I seem to recall promising some more plane Pr0n a while back
Yep, I finally got more film developed – three rolls from Aviation Nation 2009 and there’s actually a few I consider to be somewhat acceptable images amongst the ones I managed to goof up along the way
Now, I still feel like I’ve been run over by a fully loaded C-5 Galaxy, so I’m going to keep the commentary short and mostly confined to the captions. I hope y’all don’t mind. Just remember that you’ve always got the comments to fall back on for questions and I’ll answer them to the best of my ability
Yep, we all parked at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway and took buses to the flight line on the air base. I thought this was a pretty cool pic due to the snow and the Shelby facility in the picture
And this is what we saw upon leaving the buses. Base Ops is on the right and that’s an F-15E Strike Eagle in front of the C-5 Galaxy. Keep in mind, I still want an old, worn out C-5 to convert into a house in the middle of nowhere someday
Sponsored by Fry’s Electronics, the Patriots jet team flies L-39 Albatross jet trainers made in former Warsaw Pact countries.
Yeah, Kath, these are for you 8) We can’t get enough of the C-17, can we ?
Just a few of the static displays at Aviation Nation 2009. Gotta love the kids with the Cessna
Who can spot the two HUGE modifications to this airplane?
You’ve just gotta love the cackle and crackle from the round engines on a B-25
I thought I might have heard Glenn out there complaining about too much Air Force stuff and not enough Navy :lol: Here’s hoping some good pics of a Super Bug and a Wildcat can keep him from driving over here to yell at me in person
As a nice break from the flying pictures, I think this C-130 works quite well :) Keep in mind that the first C-130 flew in 1954 and we’re still buying brand new ones today. Sure, they’ve made improvements, but still nothing better has come along in all that time.
Last, but not least in anyone’s book, we have some pics of a plane I’m sure Buck will like and Glenn will remember, too. That’s right, it’s the mighty F-4 Phantom :twisted: This one will likely be a smoking hole in the desert or a home for fish before long – the HD shows that this bird is based out of Holloman AFB in New Mexico and the only Phantoms they have there are the QF-4 models which are remotely piloted and used as full scale aerial targets. They all can’t go to museums and the government has only let one get into private hands, so I’d rather see ‘em take one last flight that will do someone in the military some good instead of becoming soda cans.
Anywho, that concludes today’s exhibition of plane Pr0n :) I hope y’all liked it and I promise we’ll have more before long – probably once I get paid again and I’m feeling a bit better than a desert roadkill rattlesnake in the summertime
Have a great night and wish me luck at work tomorrow everyone
