It's great that you have ramp access cos these shots are so worthwhile.

Fantastic opportunity and nervous/thrilled - superb shot and thank you for the background story.

Hello --- This was my first aircraft --- I know it has been through several owners, I bought it as the second owner back in 1984 and sold it to the Manager of the Houston TRACON. Glad to know it is still flying --- Andrew -----

A GREAT flying aircraft, and it was previously owned by an EXCELLENT person and pilot. Thank you Greg for a great aircraft. Andrew ---

Hey, great catch of the Kalitta "9." Five Bravos for this ..... (Wave)

We get our share of "gloomy" here, too. Makes it difficult to get a clear shot (esp white fuselage backed by solid gloomy clouds). You nailed this one well. Five filled ....

Gavin and Rich ... Thanx, guys. I was "in place" where I thought I needed to be but it has been many years since I spotted at KBUF so I was working from distant memories and I got it wrong. I had not positioned far enough along 23. And by the time I realized it was not going to rotate as it went by me, it was way too late to try out "new" camera settings. It was still way too dark and the Dog was blazing away from me. I did change the f-stop (that was the only adjustment I dared to make in the few seconds I had) and I tried to keep the panning steady. Guess I pulled it off OK.

Must have been fantastic to see both Doc and FiFi together. I'm jealous ...
.... but thankful to you for sharing these excellent snaps. 5

Great shot of Doc, Ken. I've seen FiFi and had an opportunity to photo her and tour thru, but to the best of my knowledge Doc has not visited N Nevada. (I might be wrong but I think I'd have heard it was coming.) I'm hoping Doc is nearby here someday. Full Five ....

Five star photo series here, Darryl. And I esp like this one with those foreign-flag liners in the background. I have to travel quite a bit to get to an airport where I can see those. (SFO, Las Vegas, San Jose, and LAX are my best opportunities.) A couple years back, RNO was supposed to start getting Thomas Cook heavies, but the deal fell through. Anyway, I enjoy viewing your shots as they are always great pics plus they always have something of interest in the background. * * * * *

Gavin, Darryl, dicky, and skylab ... Thanks to each of you for commenting.
@dicky11 ... I most definitely appreciate your insight. However, in this particular case, I think the helicopter is a B212. Built around the same time as the helicopter model you mention, the B212 was / is the civilian version. Of course, you may have more detailed background info. In any case, it makes little difference because when the reg number (N212DF) of this copter was entered into the appropriate box, the FA program autofilled the Aircraft Type box with the "B212" code. Nothing I could do about it. That's the way FA works. (Wave)

Gavin, you commented .... " which in those days, wasn’t unheard of…if only."
I can assure you with 100%++ certainty .. it still IS possible. I'm a nobody but just two days ago all of my various RNO access badges were approved for renewal. I don't know how to pilot an airplane, I've never owned one, I'm not an aircraft mechanic, I have never worked in any aviation-related profession, and except for my membership here in FA I have no "social media" accounts or memberships, my photog skills do not qualify me to claim professional status and they earn me not one cent of cash; yet I have access to over a dozen commercial and military airports and I can get access to others with one phone call. Trust me, my friend, it still IS possible. For proof, just view my folder. I'm a nobody but that begs the question - how can a nobody like me get the wide variety of close-in pics at so many different airports that I get? Gavin, my friend, it IS still possible.

Unbelievable!! What a shot!! How SWEET is THAT?! And how lucky were all the folks in that crowd? And where were you that you were able to have elevation enough to be above them to get this stunning scene? 20 stars for one of the very best clicks of the Queen that I've ever seen.

Written on 09/08/2020 by Gary Schenauer

All of these close head-ons are terrific! The tight airborne inbound shots are ultra-terrific but even these ground snaps are superior. TY for sharing these many premier pics, Gavin.

Written on 09/08/2020 by Gary Schenauer

Perfection! Absolute perfection! Congrats x 10!

Written on 09/08/2020 by Gary Schenauer

Awesome capture angle. And (and always from you) a primo pic.

Written on 09/08/2020 by Gary Schenauer

Superb capture.

Written on 09/08/2020 by Gary Schenauer

Excellent capture! Delta's Dogs may be gone now but this shot is an outstanding way to keep the memory of them alive. A "Five;" worth "Ten."

Written on 09/08/2020 by Gary Schenauer

Caught at the very instant it is going airborne. Perfect timing! Bravos!

RWB -- Once again I am late to the party. Was at RNO taking pics of the introduction of the new CEO and President of the airport; the previous CEO/Pres retired. Also was out at a couple other area airports. So now I've got to get caught up on the newest posts. Starting out with yours -- and this one. And naturally, I'm viewing more 5 * clicks. Love the early evening sunlight shots. Tip of my cap and *****+!

Written on 09/08/2020 by Gary Schenauer

I was literally boxed in by moving aircraft. There was a jetliner taxiing north toward my location on Alpha (visible at right), this paxbird coming at me on Bravo, and a Southwest just rolling out after landing on the runway (visible in distance at left). I'm 100% positive I'll never be granted permission to get another series of pics from this point of view, so I will always remember how fantastic it was to get this snap and I am tremendously grateful to everyone who made it possible.

Thanks Mike. I never really take notice. I like to see what people think or their stories because a photo has jogged a memory.

I'd guess somewhere in North Texas, just looking at the pic and given that it is an Air Tractor.

First placed in service in Oct, 1995, this Mad Dog served the same master, Delta, from the beginning to the end of its entire 24 year "lifetime." It was retired into storage at the end of last year (Dec, 2019).
