The Night of the Cabover

“Hey, post something with longer star trails” the guy said. These are about 15 minutes worth.  I could do longer, but really, I have other pictures I need to be taking! Abandoned on the outskirts of Mojave, CA.  This was done shortly after dark, so there’s still some vestiges of weirdly warm ambient light infusing […]

Kingman 1996

Here’s a special treat for all the aircraft nerds.  It’s a 1973-vintage Continental DC-10, mothballed on the tarmac at Kingman, AZ, shot in July, 1996.  18 years ago, this month!  I recall it being about a million degrees and a million % humidity, with some refreshing rain on the hills, just out of reach.  Look how close I could […]
