Thanks Gary! I was out for the QANTAS #VH-ZNC delivery and the Dreamlifter arrived so I couldn't resist a few fotos. I love your fotos and will need to plan a road trip to RNO for some spotting with you.

5 stars is not enough

I think the tail is actually a Tiger Moth - and there is an identically marked one behind it - what appears to be VH-RA- markings suggest Robby's SAir Service agricultural planes at Parafield where the pic was taken

I believe so - would be nice if better scan was available to read the wording on the tail
The RC-3 Seebee is possibly VH-WWA and the Anson is VH-DOB ex VH-RAS VH-DJB and W1532 It was WFU 6/1962 coincidentally when the pic was taken

Hiya, Leland. An outstanding catch!! The click is worth 5 *s, another 5 *s for it being the D Lifter, and still 5 more *s for you being the kind of spotter who is willing to tolerate anything and to go out at anytime to get the capture. I've met several who like to claim they are spotters, but if all the WX conditions and photograph-snapping factors aren't absolutely perfect ... or ... if they can't drive right to the location and sit in their vehicle between planes, they sure aren't interested in spotting. If you ever get down in my area, I'd enjoy meeting you and hosting your visit to do some spotting. (Both Thumbs Up and a Tip of my RNO cap to you).

I was allowed to take a complete series of closeup photos of the process as this big freighter was being unloaded. It was my first-ever opportunity to observe and capture, from just outside the safety zone, the unloading of a heavy freighter and I am sincerely grateful to everyone who granted permission.

N927NN was supposed to depart for its next flight around noon but when I arrived at the airport at 5:50 AM the next morning it was still here. I was unable to learn why it had not left the previous day. It departed about 45 minutes after I arrived, at 6:38, and made a RNO-DFW trip.

If this is the same Robert Pryor...Hi Bob...we were on the same crew in the 62nd at Barksdale with Greg Smith (AC). I was Radar and Dave Naquin was Nav (I think I've got those names right). Don't remember the EWO or Gunner. Was at Barksdale 74-80 and Wurtsmith 83-86. Retired in 94 at Wright-Patterson and now living in Georgia. I've got a great picture (somewhere) of our crew (with wives) at a party at Greg's house...good memories!

Great picture of the BUFF Dale...what a beast it was...and is!!

Tail strike!

Written on 2018年01月23日 by shrudini

Interesting aircraft. This is an Antonov AN-74TK-200, which is based on the military AN-74T transport. This particular aircraft is an airliner by designation.
Interesting to see that large of engines mounted above the wings.

Thanks Mark. That is a spotter-friendly part of the airport known as "the holes" because the fence has several lense-shaped opening designed for photographers.

@Chris, thanks for responding. I agree you are not violating any rules, but I do think your activity runs afoul of the expectation of good conduct on this site. Do you see my point? Look at N332NV here. We have 16 total photos, two by others and 14 by you. The photo tagged here is atrocious and barely recognizable. The color is so off that livery almost looks like the yellow and brown from UPS. Some of your contrail shots are interesting, but did we need seven from the same pass on 1/17/18? Rather than just uploading the totality of your photos be more selective. The ones that are blurry should be chucked immediately. Multiple ones in sequence should probably be paired down to the best one or two.

If you'd like, please feel free to join the discussion about it, I shared that here: https://discussions.flightaware.com/t/chris-collinsworth-photos-overrunning-photo-section/30651/6

Again I am not coming at this from a point of ill will towards you and I understand if you don't have access to an airport; I lived in a rural location until a few years ago and my nearest airport was a two hour drive each way that I could not justify. I am a bit frustrated but would like to help educate you on best practices for posting. Just because something is not breaking a rule doesn't mean its a great idea. While its not a picture contest, the intent of FA photos isn't to be a dump of every photo you've ever taken of an aircraft. I have well over 100,000 aircraft photos that I have taken in my catalog, but I have only shared 30 on here. If I dumped dozens/hundreds of the same aircraft I think you would see many more people upset than appreciative. If you scale back the quantity I think you will find that most people would be a lot happier and appreciate your best shots.

Chris. Thanks for your constructive criticism. I'll start paying for attention to what I post. I know my pictures are the best. But it is not a picture contest. I don't live in an area with a major airport around me with in 100 miles and love taking pictures. So I'm stuck to high altitude pics. FA rules don't say only take one or two pictures of each plane. I always follow FA rules. I have a lot of folks on here that like what I do and have been on here 5, 10 years. I cant please everyone but I can please a few. Thank you though.
