Beautiful !! This bird is so photogenic

Written on 24-06-2017 by Angel Vee

Cliff, thanks for the info! It took a little searching for me to find just the serial number, also this was from the 2015 Keesler AFB Air Show which you remember I posted from. I recently remembered this was there and here it is!

Not a 747-200, this would be a -8.

You're welcome, Leslie... and I enjoyed reading your comments. That's a very nice looking 172 Skylane and I hope your restoration goes well for ya'll. I have always liked the Cessnas built before "Omni-Vision"!

Most all the ag aircraft I see now are turbine powered. I was north of town (and 87I) yesterday and couldn't help but notice one very large field that had a cotton crop growing in past years, but has been planted with corn this year.

As to your Dad's Thrush aircraft he operated, I certainly miss hearing the sound of those older radial engines.

super Foto

Casey, given your photo location at Kessler AFB, this might be one of the Fairchild-Swearingen RC-26B "Metroliner" aircraft operated and supported by the 186th Air Refueling Wing, MS ANG, at Key Field ANG Base, Meridian, MS. ANG units in Florida and Texas have also operated the RC-26B, so it might be supported by one of those units.

According to Joe Baugher's information, this RC-26B, USAF s/n 94-0264, was originally built by Fairchild-Swearingen as a C-26B Metro III, with c/n DC-862B. It was later converted to a RC-26B variant.

And all these years I thought that was a chase photo of an early Phoenix firing!

Thanks Cliff, I'm basically doing a flying restoration, it needed some attention as my Dad lost his medical about 10 yrs ago. He ran a 1976 Thrush S2R with a P&W R1340 and loaded many times where he is standing in the picture. When the boll weevil eradication program was implemented he was running 3 Thrush and sometimes 4. I'll post more pictures when I can dig them up.
I posted 87I but we still have the airstrip and hangar he worked from. It was a good area for ag work but with cotton crops basically gone from the area and corn taking its place its less opportunity to do ag flying here now. Plus with bigger ag planes now that can ferry further faster it is not conducive to old aircraft like he had.

I busted an eardrum for this shot. Loudest thing I've ever heard. If anyone wants to check out the video find it here:

Yeah. I'm thrilled the Iranians are still flying the Tomcat. Great.

Nice shot

Written on 24-06-2017 by Scot Wattawa

Yep, she's an MD11. The reduced span of the horizontal stab (compared to the DC10 stabilizer) confirms it.

This is my favourite everyday t-shirt. I know there are others I could wear, but e v e r y s i n g l e t i m e , this is what I reach for, for comfort and fit, each and every time.

I was one of the guys to work on the first F-4's when the AF got them in Feb 1963. We got 27 F-4B models & trained on them until the first F-4C showed up on 22 Nov 63.

Who labels this stuff? Too bad the label isn't correct.

I don't have a photo of Wardair's 747 at CYWG but I do have PanAm's 747 at CYWG in the early 70's. Will post this weekend.

Does indeed belong to IAG group, but it's actually a budget carrier based in Spain.

Used to watch those Phantoms take off from Da Nang Airbase on night missions to the north. Afterburners glowing for a few minutes after takeoff was something for a young soldier to see!

Looks like a cross between a Vickers Viscount and a Boeing Dreamlifter. Also, a sausage with wings.

met a bird in flight !

Written on 23-06-2017 by xavier legay

Was this the one out of Indy Metro?

Written on 23-06-2017 by William Baldwin

Don't know where it came from or where it was going, but it wasn't on the ground long enough to cool the tires. Fastest pit stop I've ever seen a military bird make at this airport. I don't think they even shut down the starboard engine. Here and gone! Was most definitely in a hurry.

Written on 23-06-2017 by Gary Schenauer

looks more like an MD-11

Written on 23-06-2017 by Mark Henley

Sometimes an aircraft just has to look menacing to do the job. The F-4 was that kind of aircraft. So fortunate to have a number on display around the country including here at Tinker. Beautiful just does not describe that plane.
