I finally got my pictures edited from my trip to the airport yesterday. Early morning clouds in the east made lighting difficult for the first part of the visit, but they finally cleared and I ended up with a nice blue/cloud sky. For most of the year, we have southerly winds and the aircraft take off to the south. But Thursday we had a stiff breeze from the north, and things were turned around. So instead of planes touching down in front of me or waiting to take off, I could catch them as they began to lift off, or slowed after landing (look for thrust reversers and spoilers deployed on top of the wings). The Dornier 328 (Taos Air) was a new life bird for me, as well as the Northrop F-5F aggressor I shared yesterday.
As always, the shots look better on my website, where you can go through a slide show (and they’ll be in the right order). Thanks for looking!
