Good luck Gary. I have been employed in aviation for 40+ years and its always been more like a daily dose of adventure than a job :)

Written on 17/04/2021 by Dave Sheehy

Howdy, Dave. TY for the *. Will post the CAG's "Vader" bird. And "Guess what?" I was offered a job yesterday. For a well known aviation company. But one huge problem. I MUST agree to be paid. I told them I don't accept pay for my photos and they said then I don't get the job. PERIOD. NO IFS, ANDS, or BUTS. And their offer is, ah, well, let's just say, I made 'em repeat it just to be sure I wasn't hallucinating. Dave, I always said I'm an amateur who does not and will not accept $ for my photos, but GEEEESH!! This isn't chicken feed they're offering. And it's not just the pay. I've always felt super fortunate to have the access to the numerous airports and air bases that I have around here. I have 'contacts' up the Wazzoo. But if I take this, I'll have 20-25 times as much access ... and more "contacts" ... across the country. I've got a short window of time to consider and either go Yea or Nay. But no matter which way I go, I am 1000% certain I owe my Thanks for this dazzling opportunity to a couple of super excellent guys at FlightAware who supported me, taught me, and encouraged me way back a dozen years ago when I first joined and submitted my first photos. And I also owe an equal amount of gratitude to the many friends I've made here (FAR too many to individually name at this moment) who have been my ultra-most-loyal viewers, encouragers, and followers. Without FA, and without the awesome friends I've made here, this would NOT have happened. So, those of you who have e/mail connections with me will hear more, but for the many, many of you who I can only talk to via this Comment, I simply cannot express how very, very appreciative I am to have such fabulous friends. Four years ago, when I was invited to be a photographer on the RNO ramp with the international media when AF One arrived, I believed there would never again be anything as wonderful for me as that momentous opportunity. But I never saw THIS coming. And here's the BEST part. Before I discovered FA, I was all hell-bent on getting my pics into JP. The snobs at JP rejected my submissions - 50 of them - without once ever offering any truly sincere suggestion(s) on what I needed to do to make my photos acceptable to their panel of professionally superior photographers. So I joined FA. And, as I stated above, I was supported, encouraged, and taught by the FA person who was a screener back then. As it turns out, if my pics had been accepted by JP, I'd never have joined FA ... and I'd never have gotten this chance.

With the sun rising earlier and the daytime temps going higher every day, the heat coming up from the open airport grounds makes getting undistorted long-range shots somewhat more difficult. So I just move closer.

5* Gary and looking forward to seeing the CAG bird.

Had the pleasure of examining one of these up close at an airshow. Stood underneath in a very slight rain. This was years ago. Not likely to get a chance like that these days.

757 is a classic and great angle here, wow! 5x

Written on 17/04/2021 by Tom Vance

Classic Gman I was 6th grader on this snapper, and before leaving Seattle 1964 above BFI for California, we got to watch West Coast Airlines F-27s roll in and out of BFI old terminal. Great memories and I wanted a camera but was a tad too young, plus $$ was an issue until we moved to CA and dad's new job. I never saw Mohawk having never been back east in my life, but you are right, the Electra in the background ads to this timeless scene. all 5 just for the Turkey time story!

Written on 17/04/2021 by Tom Vance

I never knew Midwest used this aircraft, 5X and great oldie!

wow..? Last time in Vegas for me driving was the 70th Anniversary US Airforce at Nellis AFB airshow 2007 - the changes in the skyline in the City is remarkable. Was this snapper taken from the D gates? Most of the buildings taller than the MGM Grand were not there in 2007.

Written on 17/04/2021 by Tom Vance

very cool Gman - I wonder how much these cost - not that I'd buy one but it would be interesting to see how many they have on order. 5*****

The size of the landing gear legs is amazing! Takes a lot of room to keep those props clear. Excellent photo of a very interesting airplane.
