Sad to see the IBERIA A340 being parted out in the back ground.

Have some 20 year old photos of this plane when it was painted white and flown by Lefty in Burnet, Texas, where it was based for years. Will post them later when I can find them. Very happy Red Bull got her flying again.

Cliff ... Thank you again, my friend.

Alien ... Hey Tom, I'm seeing him again soon (he will be flying a T-34C) and I'll ask him the story behind the "Yardsale" moniker. I'll be posting a couple more snaps of this Bug when he visited here last weekend; however, the sun was straight up and pretty harsh (and the on-airport-grounds temp was right near 100 F) so the shots aren't the very best (rather "heat hammered" and "sun stroked"). Normally, I wouldn't put 'em up but this occasion was so special for me that I'm going to get them into my FA folder anyhow. And Thanx for the compli, Tom.

there was a "blimp base" here at one time,and it was such fun to drive by and watch the operations..that was several years back and now there is a lowes and a big parking lot on the site! sad...

Imagine going back in time to a Pacific island during World War 2 with a modern day camera. Except for the pilots helmet, that's pretty much what we would have seen.

Kobe, yes BUT - it has handled a DC-3 that came through a few years ago before I started aircraft photography, and there've been a few older Apache's and Twin Bonanza's that have landed there as well during some of the Fly-In's.

RNO calendar shot, Boss! 5x5! - what do you mean amatuer? and why only 100 pics?lol

Written on 23/05/2017 by Tom Vance

Gman................!!! You outdid yourself on this one! Goose bump time reading this! The "Sharpshooters" were in RDD early May 2017 with 4 ships but didn't see ship 255. I need to know what "Yardsale" is...I love the cockpit nicknames as I can see "DJ LAchasse -Squirrel" LOL...! But can you find out why "yardsale'? I have photos of long ago friend "Grinch" I'll dig out later and post. 5 on the 5 on this one.

Written on 23/05/2017 by Tom Vance

Is it a trick of the lens or does the vertical stab look to be canted off to the port side about 5 degrees?

Written on 23/05/2017 by Tim Marks

Thanks Richard! I didn't recognize what type it was when I took the photo, but later found out it's pretty rare.

Written on 23/05/2017 by Brian Carlin

The complete lack of any people in the photo makes it slightly unnerving.

That's a great shot from the pressurised C414 cabin...

My son Christopher was in charge of the project repainting and deacalling the uppermost aircraft in the photo to celebrate Canada's 150 th anniversary as a country. The work was done at the Trans West shop in Prince Albert Saskatchewan Canada to match the old trainer with the new for celebrations across Canada.

Written on 22/05/2017 by Bill Mallinson

Gary, we can only imagine the pride you felt and how this event has printed a truly significant "once in a lifetime" moment upon you!!!

Perhaps words are totally inadequate in any ability to convey it all... and likely so, our friend, those images just might be the most treasured "aircraft spotting" photographs you'll ever capture!

My congrats to You... and my kudos to the Major!!!

My "formal" salute to him... and a sincere tip of my hat to you!

Certainly, a job well done to you both!!!

Greg and Cliff .. Hi, guys. TY for the comps. I should have worked on this shot instead of just cropping and then uploading the digicard original, but in this instance I'm going to make an exception to my usual rule of only posting one pic of a specific a/c so since I'll be posting a couple more of this Bug, the next ones will have been edited a bit. This was a super special afternoon. Lorne was in my LA class for all but one of his HS years. He had called to tell me he would be coming into Reno at noon from Seattle (in all those years, his first-ever return back to here in an F-18). I can't truly describe my feelings when the flight of two came directly overhead and then broke left ... exactly at noon. And then to see him in the two-seater ... as instructor! ... a wonderful sight!! Then, when the two Hornets had parked and shut down, he came over and his first words were, "Hi, Mr. S." Here he is ... a Major in the Marine Corps, an F/A-18 pilot, and a warbird instructor at Miramar ... and he is still calling me "Mr.". I had quite a chuckle over that. I told him those days were long ago ... it's first names now. Gotta say, guys ... I've snapped hundreds and hundreds of military metal aircraft, but getting captures of 164203 with Lorne up front is the BEST military warbird snap I'll ever take. (Wave)

Roland - by late in the war our bases in England were not nearly as vulnerable to attack, so camo no longer needed as much from that standpoint, and the bomber formations had such a massive visual signature from the exhaust contrails that camo did not really matter much in the air either. I suppose if you were a straggler flying alone you would want camo, but for the most part late in the war it was just not as necessary.

Kobe - Okay... I'm not an expert on this one, but I do know this Sikorsky was a "heavy lift" helicopter in service with the U.S. Army and was used in the Vietnam War and saw use afterwards.

It was also designed to carry mission specific pods, such as medical, photo lab, communications, etc. Many, if not all, of the CH-54 helicopters were eventually transferred to Army National Guard aviation units and all have now been retired from U.S. military service.

Erickson Air-Crane bought the FAA type certificate and manufacturing rights to this helicopter from Sikorsky in the early 1990's.
