The Locals

Our first experience when arriving at the game preserve, outside from the drive in from the airport, was a couple of very interesting birds that look more prehistoric then just about any other birds that we saw. The Southern Yellow Billed Hornbill was one of many different Hornbills that exist in the area and is […]

It’s all about the Little Guys

One of the biggest challenges I have with a blog is figuring out how to prioritize which posts go up when. The more you travel the harder it is to get current posts up. Well I was thinking about this and came to the conclusion that I wanted to do more Africa posts seeing as […]

The Super Guppy

Here’s my fun Friday post. At Wings over Houston I had the great opportunity to go inside NASA’s Super Guppy. It’s just an amazing plane that has such an irregular look to it that it makes you scratch your head and ask, “how does it fly?” Seriously it’s funky looking, but it actually has a […]

The Perspective of Scale

While I was out shooting one morning with Dad he brought up the issue of putting these planes into perspective as far as scale goes. If you have never experienced being around any of these aircraft, which I recommend everyone goes and sees them at some point, then it is hard to grasp the actual […]

How Much Light is Needed?

You set the alarm to get up early only to find that the destination is socked in with a blanket of clouds. You check the weather and decide to wait a bit before heading out. The field was still covered, nothing getting in, nothing to do but make lemonade with the clouds that have definition […]

A Couple of Vietnam Favorites

I’m still enjoying going through images from the last month and that’s sorta fueling these random blog ideas I have. Since Yesterday I did a couple Korean Era jets, why not switch over to some Vietnam Era ones today. This first one I had never seen fly before and that’s the F-100 Super Sabre. The […]

The MiG 15

I have never been much of a jet guy but the MiG 15 is definitely one I enjoy seeing. This Korean Era fighter was truly a worthy competitor in the skies during the fifties. This Russian fighter was famous early in the war as being one of the best fighters out doing most other straight […]

Recreating History

I love when I can recreate history. Being around these amazing planes always brings back feelings of the olden days where Aviation was the pinnacle of technology. Of course most of the images we see back then are in black and white and so naturally why not carry on that tradition. One of the rarest […]

The Caretakers of History

A few years back when Dad and I were getting started in Aviation, we met a group of individuals that had such a passion for flying and preserving the history of flight that they have become family. The Texas Flying Legends Museum, based out of Ellington Field, Wiscasset MN, and Minot ND, is home to […]
