Back in January, when AzAP first started (we were only a group on Flickr and we called ourselves the Arizona Spotters), we took our first group trip to Pima Air & Space Museum.  I had arranged a private tour of the Restoration Hangar for our group.  An unexpected part of the tour was being able to climb into the cockpit/nose and the tail of their Convair B-36J Peacemaker.

Being able to get inside of the B-36 was a chance of a lifetime.  And the Flight Engineer panel (below) is still one of my most interesting pictures;

The B-36 is almost all put back together.  Then they have to figure out where they are going to move it to - and how to get it there.

It would be an amazing move to watch, but my guess is that it is going to take more than a day to accomplish.

According to the Pima website - the B-36 Peacemaker that has been undergoing re-assembly and restoration will be moved to the display line today (Wed, July 1st).

http://pimaair.org/project.php?rid=1

(outboard propellers and jet pods will be added once it is on display)

And no - this is not a picture of it ready to be put on display.  ;)

Last time I was down at Pima, I spent some time just keying in on some of the aircraft details.  This W&B placard from the Budd Conestoga caught my eye so I did a little stark processing on it.

Holy Cow they made quick work of that since I was there in April.  They really must have made hay with the "cooler" early summer temps this year.

The mottled gray SLUFs just look better than their Lizard Skinned Brothers.  Thanks for posting this.  One of my close friends and retired Navy Rear Admiral flew the SLUF before he came over to the Dark Side to fly satellites with me.  He had some great stories about flying the Corsair IIs for carriers.  It had big shoes to fill when it replaced the Scooter.  Thanks again for posting this image on the forum.  It's great.

Doug was telling me they're open later, which opens up a lot more options in terms of good lighting (light on the Swiss Hunter should be phenomenal in the evening, as well as the B-36).

Today at PASM they moved the P-51D from the restoration hangar to Hangar 4 for display. I will post more photos tomorrow after they install the gear doors, pitot tube, etc.

Double check before you go down.  From the material I have gotten from PASM about the evening hours - only the Hangers are open late - not the actual grounds.

Jack was telling me the same thing yesterday.  Pima After Hours is hangars only because there are no lights out on the grounds.

FYI, they kicked me out of the hangers at 5:00 pm sharp last Monday, so I don't think the hangers are open late.  The sign at the front of the museum says Museum closes at 5:00 pm.

Had a nice little visit to the museum this last weekend, my wife's company had their holiday party at the museum.  Didn't actually have much of an opportunity to venture outside.  I did manage to sneak away from the party for a few, but the overcast didn't help much.  Here's about the best I could manage.

Very nice shot(s), Dave.  The one thing I have always hated disliked about PASM is that most of the aircraft are left outside in the elements, but I know it would be too hard to put them all inside to protect them.  This has bothered me since my first visit there when I was a little kid.


Title: Re: Pima Air and Space Museum, Tucson, AZ
Post by: Joe Copalman on December 07, 2010, 02:31:17 PM
True, some aircraft do look rather sad, but you have to measure that against the sheer volume of aircraft they have on display and the relatively benign weather.  Sun-bleaching and pigeon crap are much better than salt air, hurricanes, tornadoes, and all that other stuff.  And hangar museums aren't all they're cracked up to be.  Look at the fire at the Yankee Air Museum a few years back - they lost A LOT of rare aircraft when the hangar burned down.  And the PASM restoration team does an outstanding job of refurbishing the aircraft they have on display, even if there's no way for them to ever get caught up to what the elements do to the rest of the collection.

That is all very true, and it does seem like they are doing a better job of restoration/maintaining the last 10-15 years.

Matt/Joe

I agree with you both.  I just look at the beautiful job that they did on the B-36J.  That restoration is beautiful and the aircraft they have indoors are very nicely done.  I was not trying to disparage the museum or their efforts in maintaining this enormous collection of aircraft.  I was just lamenting the fact that weather and time does take a toll on these beautiful and historic airplanes.  The March AFB museum is another outdoor venue, but I think their birds are in much worse shape.  That being said, I do think  it’s definitely an aviation museum worth visiting if you‘re in the Temecula area.

Face it ,we would all like to see all these planes flying again but since that is obviously not practical we settle for second best ,seeing them in the flesh and I think Pima does a pretty decent job considering where a majority of their collection comes from ,they are saving from being scrapped ,I had watched a video on youtube recently that made my skin crawl and I think you guys should see ,I wont describe it but watch and you will see why I am upset at what they did..................

The ground crew was a bit cavalier about the danger points of that Tomcat.  When he walked behind that Tomcat with the engines still running, I thought he was toast.  It was sad to know that the Cat was being put out to pasture.

That's how they do it on the carrier deck.  You put your hand up, and if it gets hot you duck down some more.

Wow!  I was just down there and they didn't have that one on display.  The last MiG-23 I saw was at Dayton.   It was in rough shape and being prepared to go into restoration.  This one looks great.  There is a MiG-27 at March AFB museum,  The -27 being a ground attack version of the -23.

Title: Re: Pima Air and Space Museum, Tucson, AZ
Post by: jslugman on May 04, 2011, 01:31:02 PM
My guess would be no since he was a retired 5-star when serving as President.


Title: Re: Pima Air and Space Museum, Tucson, AZ
Post by: bilwor on May 04, 2011, 04:18:28 PM
I have photos of Columbine II both inside and out when it was being restored a Ryan Field, Tucson in 1990. Only Columbine has the 5 stars, as he used it when he was Supreme Commander of Allied Forces in Europe. The other two Columbines were when Ike was President and they were Air Force 1s. I don't know what year you saw the Connie Chris, but my guess would be you saw Columbine II.
 
From Wikipedia:
"The presidential call sign was established for security purposes during the administration of Dwight D. Eisenhower. The change stemmed from a 1953 incident where an Eastern Airlines commercial flight (8610) had the same call sign as a flight the president was on (Air Force 8610). The aircraft accidentally entered the same airspace, and after the incident the unique call sign "Air Force One" was introduced for the presidential aircraft. The first official flight of Air Force One was in 1959 during the Eisenhower administration.

]Eisenhower also introduced four other propeller aircraft, the Lockheed C-121 Constellations (VC-121E) to presidential service. These aircraft were named Columbine II and Columbine III

Two Aero Commanders were also added to the fleet and earned the distinction of being the smallest aircraft ever to serve as Air Force One. President Eisenhower also upgraded Air Force One's technology by adding an air-to-ground telephone and an air-to-ground teletype machine."

Hold It, Hold It, Hold It! Bronco007, Scott or whatever your name is, everyone on this site knows I'm a recovering Ansel Adams addict. Posting this kind of fine art b&w imagery simply makes my recovery that much harder. To make things worse, you actually used an analog camera and film - Holy Edward Weston!

Seriously my brother, to pull that image out of the often distracting background of Pima is no small feat. Well done  ;)

Jeff,

Thanks for the kind words!  Just to clarify, the Fujifilm X100 is in fact a digital camera. It's got a 12MP sensor and a fixed lens (35mm equiv). The sensor has a 1.5 crop factor. Best of all it looks like an old rangefinder. This was my first post to AZAP. Still trying to figure out the user interface.

More from Pima. This one was taken a week after the KB-50.  Storms were once again moving into the area.  I didn't spend any time removing things, in fact there is a father and child near the nosewheel along with the ubiquitous signs.  The signs are strategically placed to foil any serious attempts at photography.  This is the second photo I've posted on AZAP.  I'm slowly trying to remove the "newbie" from my posts...At this rate it might take a while.

Thanks Matt for the nomination of the KB-50!

Continuing the discussion above, I typically try to frame my shots at PASM in a way that allows for easy cloning of the signs and whatever other objects might draw the eye.  This was also shot when traffic on Valencia was pretty much non-stop in both directions and on a wider shot like this, I had maybe 2 seconds max to get it without any cars in the background.  Really wishing I had gotten a bit more creative on this trip, but it was pushing 110º and the light was at its worst at that point in the day.

Yet another shot from last summer.  I remember seeing these in Yuma when we'd pass through on our way to San Diego for summer vacation.  There would typically be one parked roughly near where the SAR Hueys are now.  To me they seemed to be a very elegant aircraft.

Love how the sky just pops in your PASM shots.  Are you shooting with a filter of any sort, or are you doing all the work in post-processing?


Title: Re: Pima Air and Space Museum, Tucson, AZ
Post by: Scott Youmans on November 24, 2011, 09:56:36 PM
Thanks Joe!  I'm pretty sure I was using a polarizer on this and with many of the shots taken down there this summer.  Some post processing involved too. The Polarizer is great for those Tucson summer skies.  You've probably seen this for yourself but you have to be careful when shooting with a wide angle because the sky is not affected uniformly by the polarizer.  I botched quite a few shots due to that when shooting film.

Post by: Scott Youmans on November 27, 2011, 10:58:15 AM
Thanks Matt! Hot as it is, July, August, and September are among the best times to shoot there.  Of course there can be spectacular light at other times of the year as well but it's harder to predict.  I would be glad to host a tour and throw in my two cents worth if requested.  We have many very competent photographers in our ranks but I probably have had more than the average amount of "opportunities" to learn from my mistakes while shooting at that location.

If there is sufficient interest we can discuss specifics as we get a little closer to summer.  In the meantime I'll run it by the museum to get their input.

Title: Re: Pima Air and Space Museum, Tucson, AZ
Post by: Joe Copalman on November 27, 2011, 02:01:02 PM
I'd definitely be up for that, especially considering how "slow" things are relative to the fall/winter/spring months. 

I think my biggest problem shooting there is that I tend to see only the obstacles and the clutter, rather than the opportunities.  Looking at your shots, Scott, I don't even notice the signs, yet when I shoot there, I agonize over shooting from an angle where I can be sure of an easy clone-job to get rid of them and other potential distractions.   


Title: Re: Pima Air and Space Museum, Tucson, AZ
Post by: Scott Youmans on November 27, 2011, 03:04:39 PM
Composing as you suggest, so you can clone out the signs, is definitely a good strategy and one I used on the book project quite often.  Depending on where they are sometimes I just leave them in.

When you mentioned seeing "only the obstacles and the clutter, rather than the opportunities" you've hit on what I think is a key issue with composition whether it be a painting or a photograph.  I find museums like Pima are among the most challenging situations for that reason but even under "normal" circumstances it can be a challenge to see potentially good compositions within the range of possibilities.  One thing I see people doing a lot is avoiding anything that's backlit. If you look at the paintings of Keith Ferris you'll notice that almost everything he paints is backlit and he can pick any view he wants.  Another common misconception is that things look best with the sun directly behind you.  That often leads to a flat featureless photo.  Much better (usually) to have the light more around to the front (of the aircraft) so you can see the contours of the fuselage, nacelles, tail, etc.  This was the case late in the day at El Centro, very nice.  Avoiding overcast altogether isn't always the best strategy either.  Depending on the situation, the lack of distinct shadows can be a real advantage especially for monochrome.  While I'm yacking here's one more, avoiding people in the shot.  Sometimes it really helps to have someone there. It gives a sense of scale and especially in the case of views looking down on an aircraft, such as a photo taken from a lift, it prevents the aircraft from looking like a model.

As I mentioned earlier we have a number of accomplished photographers in the group who no doubt have their own opinions and have developed their own style and successful techniques.  I'm still learning as I go.  I've had to learn many things more than once.  I hate when that happens. :-[

All good points Scott.  I often find it fun shooting at museums just because I end up with images and compositions I would not have originally thought of before being on site. You made a good point about people, your use of them in the museum book and other official photos is spot on, especially that jackass that wondered into your B-36 photos! ;)

With this next post (CH-21C) I've moved out of my "corner" to the other edge.  I don't know what it is about this old helicopter that intrigues me.

Scott, I couldn't agree more.  With a few exceptions (the Hunter immediately comes to mind), I gravitate toward the more "textured" aircraft there.  I think they tell more of a story.  I also like some of the scrapyards in the area for the same reason - you get the weathered look of the AMARG birds, but without the spray-lat and often without the inventory numbers.

AFAIK, KB-50s were B-29s with jet engines added outboard to increase cruising speed so they could service the early Century-series fighters.


Title: Re: Pima Air and Space Museum, Tucson, AZ
Post by: Joe Copalman on January 09, 2012, 11:22:36 PM
Kinda-sorta.  The B-50s were new-build aircraft based on the B-29, but with different engines and some structural differences.  Given SAC's thirst for A-bomb-capable bombers at the time (late 40s, early 50s), it wasn't until after the B-50 had given way to the B-36 and B-47 that conversion to KB-50 tankers really got underway. 


Title: Re: Pima Air and Space Museum, Tucson, AZ
Post by: Scott Youmans on January 10, 2012, 09:32:45 AM
As Joe mentioned the B-50 had different engines which were R-4360s like the B-36, C-124, some C-119s, and the C-97 which was based on the B-50 airframe. Interestingly that engine also powered the F2G. Other than the engines/nacelles, the most noticeable difference is the much taller vertical stabilizer. I always thought the B-50/KB-50 was a nicer looking aircraft than the B-29.

From 28 January through 31 May, Pima Air and Space Museum is hosting an art exhibition called "The Boneyard Project."  The deal is that a bunch of artists have painted scrapyard aircraft and radomes in their own personal styles.  The exhibit opens Friday, but here are a few things I can post.  Even if "graffitti" and "street art" aren't your thing they are quite interesting to see in person.

It got pretty creepy before I decided to head inside.  You think you're safe because the lightning is a couple of miles away and then there's that instantaneous flash/bang that causes one to reconsider!

The B-36 shot was taken after the peak of the storm which had passed just west of the museum.

Thanks Jeff!  It really was literally cool.  It had been typically very hot and sticky but once the outflow from the storm hit things cooled off nicely, and of course that beautiful desert smell came along with it.  At a certain point it became advisable to sit things out in the nice new snack bar!

Jay, I admit it!  I've become obsessed with deleting files.  It's a curious internal struggle to let go of even obviously redundant images.  There's a little voice saying "maybe this one has some redeeming quality I have yet to recognize".


Title: Re: Pima Air and Space Museum, Tucson, AZ
Post by: Joe Copalman on May 30, 2012, 08:57:32 PM
Scott, I'm going through a similar process.  13,000 images deleted since May 21st.  Lots of older stuff, so much of it redundant, but also going through and getting rid of "keepers" that I know I will never do anything with.  Those are the ones that are hard to get rid of.

It's the forward section of a -97 of some flavor, but it's just a cockpit, removed from the rest of the fuselage.  It was one of the Boneyard Project pieces, but is off display now near the Hannah hangar.

It's definitely the 129th Rescue Squadron (as they used to be called). Here is their symbol, and it's still visible on the tail of the airplane.

Ken, Just a thought from the peanut gallery.  I think it's a good strategy for deemphasizing the clutter.  I wonder how it would look to leave just a little color in the background.  The stark difference between the color and monochrome tends to give the brain a clue that something has been manipulated.  Worth a try maybe.

Shooting this aircraft from the front was also a good strategy considering the canopy situation!

Thank you very much Chris!  Mother nature has a real knack for improving airplane photos.  You can even leave the airplane out and still have a pretty nice shot!

Ken, Just a thought from the peanut gallery.  I think it's a good strategy for deemphasizing the clutter.  I wonder how it would look to leave just a little color in the background.  The stark difference between the color and monochrome tends to give the brain a clue that something has been manipulated.  Worth a try maybe.

This is what I like about Lightroom - you can control hue, saturation, and luminance on individual colors, allowing you to de-emphasize background colors (usually yellows, oranges, and greens) while making your subject "pop" a bit more, yet still look more or less natural.

"There's . . . SOMETHING . . . on the wing!"
He's actually holding one of those speed wrenches.  Kind of looks like he's pointing at something, perhaps where a bird left its mark.  This was posed for Chad Slattery who was taking photos from a very tall (over 100 feet!) lift at the time.  Top part of lift has been conveniently removed.  His photo was on the cover of Air & Space a few years ago.

Post by: Scott Youmans on July 09, 2012, 10:51:15 PM
Thank you very much Jeff.  Was thinking of you when I posted it.  I keep running across this image as I browse my photos and am always drawn to it.  There is something about this once proud aircraft just sitting on some old tires and pallets that pulls at the heart strings.  Even in its deteriorated state it remains dignified.

This is the same T-33 that is now on display indoors at the museum.  It was in a few movies during its Hollywood career, thus the "Fallen Star".  Photo was taken with a Nikon 80-400 on a D3 at about f/6.3 and 310mm.  The somewhat soft background was a result of the focal length and aperture.  I really wanted to like that lens but I found the zoom to be very stiff and the edges to be soft.  Nicely made though.  I've seen many excellent photos taken with the same lens so maybe I had a bad copy.

Avro 696 Shackleton M.R.2-AEW.2 Mr McHenry  RAF WL790-8 N790WL
The Shackleton carried the “Orange Harvest” radar warning receiver (RWR) an ESM (Electronic Support Measures for detection and classification). .  This could give the bearing of any radars which illuminated the Shackleton;  the receiver for “Orange Harvest” looked like a giant spark plug and sat on top of the fuselage.

Would almost like to see the interior of the "Shack" removed from the aircraft and brought indoors (maybe put it in a simple metal tube of approx the same diameter as the fuselage) so visitors can better appreciate the Cold War tech that was used.

That's actually a really cool idea.  There are quite a few aircraft at PASM with interesting "guts," like the EC-135 and EC-121, where it would be cool to see what the actual workstations looked like.  I'd imagine that removing these from the aircraft would be pretty difficult, not to mention costly though.  Still a great idea.

I have walked past this aircraft countless times without giving a second thought to shooting it.  Really trying to wrap my head around what kept me from shooting it, as it is incredibly photogenic, and an excellent candidate for the fisheye treatment.

Messrs. Youmans - I always enjoy the dark and brooding images you've captured at PASM over the years. Assuming it is during the monsoon that you're getting these great angry cloud formations, they make for great b&w conversions. Well done sir.

Post by: Scott Youmans on December 18, 2013, 04:28:58 PM
Thank you very much both Joe and Jeff.  Both of those were photos were taken during August 2011.  Since I couldn't make it to Pima for the night shoot I thought I'd drag my net through some old folders of photos taken there. In the case of the F-80 I was going for that aluminum skin appreciation look. Joe has a nice shot on the PASM night thread of two vertical stabs that I really like but failed to comment on in a timely fashion.  Love those bare aluminum aircraft skins. I'll miss aluminum aircraft.  The monsoon is hands down my favorite time to shoot there or just about anywhere for that matter.


Title: Re: Pima Air and Space Museum, Tucson, AZ
Post by: Joe Copalman on December 18, 2013, 04:54:44 PM
One great thing about this night shoot was that the orange glow on the horizon could be captured far longer in the reflections on the skin of a few aircraft than it could with the naked eye, and longer exposures only amplified it.  I didn't notice it during the previous two night shoots the way I did during this one.  Definitely something to look into next time around.

Great series of images Scott. Of course, the black and white Connie is excellent. The framing you employed strikes a wonderful balance between the aircraft and the elements. Your position on the B-36 really gives the viewer a unique perspective of this cold war leviathan. The early morning light adds both warmth and soft contrast to a terrific image.

From the Inside Out - B-36 interior

Wow Scott, this one got by me. Not sure if the lens you used is contributing to my observation, but the B-36 interior looks rather "roomy" compared to a B-17 (the only such interior I've been in). I also love the exposure and color balance you achieved. I'd appreciate any EXIF you'd be willing to share.


Title: Re: Pima Air and Space Museum, Tucson, AZ
Post by: Scott Youmans on January 31, 2014, 05:31:23 PM
Thanks Jeff, This shot was the result of a rare moment of foresight years back when the shots were taken. I took a number exposures to get both outside and inside exposed properly. The years went by and I stumbled across the series the other day and decided to use the HDR processing tool in Photoshop to merge two of the images.  The result was fair at best so I brought it into Lightroom and tweaked the noise and contrast etc.

In regard to the size of the interior of the B-36, it probably does look a bit bigger than it really is but it is clearly a LOT bigger than a B-17 or B-24 and there are multiple compartments, some larger than this one.  Being a huge fan of the Jimmy Stewart movie, Strategic Air Command, I had great fun sitting in the cockpit making engine sounds.  Thankfully no one was around to make fun of me. Checklist complete!

I'll add some EXIF data later when I can access my computer.

EOS-5D, Canon 24-105mm f/4L IS set at 24mm, ISO 400, shot exposed for interior was 1/4 sec at f/11, exterior shot was 1/125 sec at f16.  Aperture priority most likely.  Probably switched to f/16 for exterior shot to make sure outside was sharp.  Not the best strategy to change apertures for a series like this.  Not sure why I shot at ISO 400 since the camera was fixed.  Probably just left it where it had been set prior to these shots.  Nothing too noteworthy here.  Just took a series of shots about two stops apart and picked the ones I thought would work best.

Thanks for the EXIF info on the B-36 image Scott. Makes sense and helps me better understand how you achieved the final image. Congrats on the subtlety of your HDR processing. For me, it is a very well exposed image and draws my interest into this rarely seen interior.

Moonlit Nightmare - 8/20/2011

As I'm on a night photography jag lately, this image certainly got my attention. The subject is very interesting and your framing makes the most of the "Nightmare". The broken nose gear laying in the foreground is a terrific element. It appears that the coup de grâce was applied to the forward section of the fuselage. Lastly, your traditional cyanotype processing really fits the "Moonlit" tonality of the conversion. Very well done Scott.

Thank you for your comments Jeff.  That Connie (Warning Star) sat out there for quite a while more or less intact.  I had taken quite a few shots of it while it was still in one piece.  When I returned and found it had been cut up it was pretty sad.  I always thought the RC-121/EC-121 were impressive looking aircraft.  In the early to mid-sixties there were quite a number of them lined up along Buckeye Road which ran along the south side of NAF Litchfield.  Here's an example seen under better circumstances.

GANNET REVISITED
(https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7331/14186919114_9571162b3f_b.jpg)

To quote an old whaling captain; "He tasks me; he heaps me". Working on this image has been challenging. I've been trying to find the proper balance between the last warm rays of light and the cool hues of evening.
I also wanted to maintain the illusion of the Gannet disappearing into the darkness of night. While I've reached a point where I'm sufficiently satisfied to post, I'm sure more work will be forthcoming

I really like it.  Much more than the monochrome, actually.  I mean, it looks obviously messed-with, but the result is still an engaging image.

I'm on the fence Scott. Love the toned monochrome, but the moody color version is a wonderful alternative. The warmer tones of the color image is appealing to me versus the cooler tones of the monochrome. The monochrome also seems "flat" compared to the color. I'd take a nice print of either version.

Nice ones, Scott.  You always make it out for the right weather!
Thanks John. Tucson has always been my favorite destination this time of year. Much more predictable thunderstorm activity than Phoenix and great places to hang out to experience them.  Some of my earliest pictures were taken in Tucson this time of year.  Photos asides, I just like being in that environment.  The cool air coming out of the storms, the dark sky, the smell of wet chaparral, distant (hopefully) thunder, and of course all of the mothballed aircraft at DM and the outlying yards.

Humble suggestion from the biggest dummy in AzAP, start a section of the museum for unrestored aircraft. For me, there is something to be said about an old warrior with all its scares, callouses, and wrinkles. But maybe I'm just thinking about how I look in the mirror  ;D

I'm clearly a dilettante when it comes to this aviation photography thing. The most technical volume in the modest stack of reading material on my night stand is the owners manual for my iPhone. Something I've avoided reading for nearly two years for fear I won't understand anything beyond the on/off switch.

I've been looking forward to the Kestrel's roll out for quite some time. Working with the Marines at FRC East at Cherry Point I was able to help the Museum obtain some needed parts and technical data.  The rear (hot) nozzles were ultimately donated by the Marines who also provided the technical data to remove the outriggers from an AV-8A or C from AMARG and install them on the Kestrel.  The early development history of this aircraft starting with the original P.1127 is fascinating.

It is a stacked image--I am not sure why the 4 segments, though.  It is a lot more than 4 images.  Hopefully over time as I play more that will make more sense!

John,

You might take a close look at the images in your "stack." Check for 3 frames that were either underexposed or maybe a gap in time. I've shot a bunch of ISS passes with multiple exposures and I get the same sort of gaps between frames - due to the speed of the ISS and the time required to recycle the shutter.

And, since they are evenly spaced maybe it's your intervalometer being whacky? Or maybe your buffer? I bet it can be identified and corrected.

Good luck!

Cold Warier - EB-47E

In addition to the wonderful quiet light and dark weather/mountains in the background, I love the framing of this photograph Scott. The pano crop and placement of the EB-47E off-center left is terrific. The angle you've chosen creates an superb "echelon" perspective between the fuselage, port side engines, and fuel tank. Your post processing treatment of the image adds a cool metallic "patina" to the aircraft that fits perfectly (IMO) with the blue tonality created by the weather. The standard PASM canopy paint can sometimes be a distraction for me; especially in daylight photography. But it blends perfectly with the overall tone of this image. Was it raining on you at the time or was the storm staying north of PASM - the B-47 looks wet. Lastly, was this a summer or winter storm? It has a cold winter look to it, but I might be misjudging.

Side note: I've always found the small "bubble-style" canopy on the Stratojet to be a very unique design element for such a large aircraft. Not something I'd expect to find on a strategic bomber. To give Boeing credit, not that they care about my opinion, I think it works aesthetically on the B-47.

Post by: Scott Youmans on December 30, 2014, 09:13:59 PM
Thank you all!  This was taken during a monsoon storm and as I recall it was still raining lightly at that point.  The "cold" look is more the result of the dark clouds and processing than actual temperature at the time although it was relatively cool with the storm.  This was the same storm that yielded the B-36 shot with lightning in the background. I probably didn't use the best judgement staying out there as long as I did with the lightning getting close.  Got kind of creepy at a certain point and I hightailed it out of there!  Taken with a Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 at 170mm at f/3.5.
Jeff, I agree with you about the bubble canopy. It's pretty cool on the B-47.  As you probably know the prototype B-52 also had a bubble canopy but I think the side-by-side cockpit layout was ultimately a better choice for that behemoth.

Thank you Jeff! This post was inspired by your recent A-4 shots with which I was similarly enamored.  I don't think that particular F-86 is there anymore but I could be wrong.  John B. might know if it was part of the recent F-86 restoration.  Photo taken with an EOS-20D and 28-135mm.  The early (digital) days.

Beautiful! Love that aluminum skin in the dusk light.  One of my favorite aircraft too.  I remember when that C-124 was still on base but parked near a road along with some other aircraft.  Kind of an early celebrity row back in the sixties.  Close by were a while bunch of single-seat Voodoos. Here she is back in 1979.

Thanks Scott. I'm told that the C-124 was nicknamed "old shaky" and that long flights were not considered comfortable. Love your old photos.

I'M GOING TO TWEET ABOUT THIS SUNSET

As you might imagine Joe, I love the tight framing you choose for this image. IMO, you've captured all the unique design elements of the T-37 without going "wide" and photographing the entire airplane. The low (signature Copalman) angle helps emphasize the distinct shape of the canopy yet you've kept it below the horizontal lines of the T-tail - a nice touch. Finally, I like how the Tweet is in quiet light while the Catalina Foothills are vibrantly illuminated by another great Tucson sunset - it creates a wonderful contrast. Well done sir.

It hardly seems possible that F-16s would be going to museums and converted into target drones.  I remember when the F-102s and F-100s were being converted to drones in the late seventies and early eighties and those aircraft seemed pretty old to me then. In reality they were only twenty something years old.  The F-16As are older than that now!  Even some of the Cs and Ds are over thirty years old.

It looks like the VC-137 is nearing completion and it looks beautiful.  You all have been very busy with your restoration projects and the results are impressive.  Thanks for posting progress photos.

...another man's treasure.

Scott, I really like the framing and your use of depth of field to isolate the primary subject. I especially like how you've composed the image with your primary subject "off center". Your monochrome treatment is an excellent choice for this image as I assume the color version would be much less interesting. How about sharing some EXIF info on the shot (camera, lens, settings, etc). I'd also like some info on the subject since I am definitely unsure of what this "treasure" actually is  ;)  ;D

Once again, well done.

Thank you Jeff!.  Dave's got it. It's the end of a constant speed propeller blade. The bevel gear is part of the mechanism that controls the pitch. Shot with a Nikon D810 and 24-120mm f/4 VR lens set at 65mm. ISO 400, f/4, 1/320th sec.

Non-Flying Boat

PASM may well be my favorite place for aviation photography. IMHO, the unrestored or aging aircraft are the gems of the museum. Scott, your portfolio of work that encompasses these little seen aircraft is tremendous. Heretofore, your "FALLEN STAR" (http://azaerophoto.com/forum/index.php?topic=30.msg33543#msg33543) image has been my all-time favorite. That being said, "Non-Flying Boat" has gotten within a "nose" of surpassing it. The monochrome/sepia treatment is a wonderful touch.

Our brother Scott Youmans was kind enough to let me tag along on a trip to PASM. My hopes were to get some images with those classic Youmans monsoon thunderstorm backgrounds. It was an epic adventure that reinforced the old adage which teaches; 'mess with the bull, you get the horns'. While we got some nice background storm clouds, we also go the rain - in buckets. We were on the west perimeter when the rain hit somewhat unexpectedly and with authority. Initially, we hid under the sizable wing of a KB-50J and were doing a good job of staying dry until the storm quickly increased in intensity and the wind began to swirl with impressive velocity. No matter what we tried and where we hid, we were getting soaked. We moved from one large aircraft to another in the hopes of avoiding the worst of the storm - denied! Scott's Nikon D810 not only got hammered by the rain, it also got some grit/mud on it as we rushed for cover. I can only guess how much rain fell in the 30-45 minutes of the worst of the storm, but it definitely had to be in inches. Making our way to the PASM cafeteria building for refuge was no easy feat. Several "crossings" of heretofore unknown rivers/washes of moving water were required. In the end, Scott literally washed his Nikon under a stream of running water in the PASM cafeteria bathroom - thank goodness for weather seals.

I shot this image (and numerous others) using my vintage Asahi Pentax 50mm f/1.4 lens mounted on my 5D3. While I learned the hard way that the Vello adapter does not create a reliable weather seal, it sure renders some interesting images when shooting at f/2.

Epic tale.  I ran into downpours like that twice during Angel Thunder, once up in Winslow and again out at Playas with Valinski.  Luckily we had some shelter at Playas, but with rain coming down during some of the more active portions of the scenario, I had no choice but to be out in it.  Definitely tricky shooting in the rain, especially with mud involved, but my gear held up awesomely. 

Looks like you guys had a great time down there in spite of the rain.

Thank you Scott. Getting some of those airframes wet from the rain really changes their "look" and (as you well know) added a whole new dimension to making photographs at PASM. We need to encourage John Bezosky and associates to add a "rain shoot" to our established "night shoot" photocall. It might not happen often, but when it did...    ;D

I really like the unique angle and framing you used on the KB-50J. The perspective you choose creates an echelon feel to those monster props that contrasts wonderfully against that massive shaft of rain in the background. I also like how you've extended the pano crop to capture the 'cool' silhouette of the Catalina Mountains and monsoon clouds. The overall quiet/wet look adds a whole new dimension to this historic tanker.

Wonderful image-making Scott. Your framing of this shot creates a very unique and interesting perspective of this airframe. BTW, normally I regret infecting others with peculiar habits. However, I'm glad I was able to peak your interest with the Takumars. That little tank looks terrific on your Fuji.

Originally viewed this on my iPhone. Way more impressive and interesting on a large monitor. For some reason I always thought this hulk was another aircraft type but it sure is a B-47. Not a particularly common version I don't think. Maybe John can clue us in on what version it is. It always amazes me to see what was once a highly advanced front line aircraft just rotting away like this.  Fortunately there are a good number of B-47s preserved around the country including the very nice example at Pima.

Originally viewed this on my iPhone. Way more impressive and interesting on a large monitor. For some reason I always thought this hulk was another aircraft type but it sure is a B-47. Not a particularly common version I don't think. Maybe John can clue us in on what version it is. It always amazes me to see what was once a highly advanced front line aircraft just rotting away like this.  Fortunately there are a good number of B-47s preserved around the country including the very nice example at Pima.

Thanks Scott. While I'm the least qualified AzAP member regarding aircraft identification, I also thought this might be a unique airframe. As seen in my photo below, it has two "glass" panels on the side of the nose cone. It has these on both sides. When I "Google" images of the B-47, the only examples I could find with that trait was the XB-47 prototype and a B-47 at Edwards with a very pointed nose (designation unknown). Of course, I have no confidence in any of these findings, but I'm hoping they spur John and others to offer correction and/or clarification.

Looks like its the second of ten B-47As (49-1901).  Sitting next to it is the B-45 Tornado (47-0063) nose I was thinking of.

Scott I am absolutely in love with that Mystere shot.  I'm guessing that's another Takumar image?

Post by: Scott Youmans on July 13, 2015, 12:40:05 PM
Thank you Joe! Yes, taken with a 50mm Takumar at f/2 on an X-T1 body (1.5x crop). The bokeh is nice but in retrospect I wish the canopy was in slightly better focus but it would sharpen up the background too.  There are some issues (in my mind at least) with the editing so I might have another go at it.

I really like both of your Mystère edits Scott. In fact, I believe your framing and composition is so strong it would be an excellent image with many types of post processing. That being said, your second "attempt" is my current favorite. The desaturated look is ever so slightly more appealing to me.

Thank you Anna and Jeff! I was originally going to go for a monochrome redo but decided to keep in a hint of color and play down the contrast a bit. I wanted to retain at least a little more of the actual look. If only the smell of the rain soaked desert and the sound of distant thunder could be piped in somehow.

As always, your kind words of encouragement are appreciated Harvey. At least 50% of the credit for the Mystere image goes to our compatriot Scott Youmans. He allowed me to use his new Sony A7RII to make the photograph. An absolutely terrific camera that renders images in uniquely wonderful way. The Globemaster II has been one of my favorites for a while now. The fine folks at PASM have it positioned perfectly to reflect the warm light of a setting sun. Mix in some monsoon fun and all I had to do want trip the shutter.

Mystère IVA - Variation X

I really am liking "Variation X" a bunch Scott. The low angle really helps to isolate the image and I think you absolutely nailed the perfect amount of DOF control - the Maestro of the f/stop.

Jeff, I failed to see your note on "Variation X". Thank you! Considering the scramble to get a number of shots while the light was good I would attribute a fair amount of the success of the shot to luck.

Stunning, Jeff! I was going through my dad's old photo stuff and found a Mamiya/Sekor 50mm f/2 lens. "Your" lens and adapter are on the way, with the M42 adapter showing up tomorrow. Gonna try the Mamiya lens and see how it does, then compare it to the one you have. :-)

Brian, pretty sure my father had that lens along with Mamiys/Sekor body (until I commandeered it!). I'll be curious to hear what you think about that lens.


Title: Re: Pima Air and Space Museum, Tucson, AZ
Post by: Brian Corbett on September 02, 2015, 02:21:28 PM
Scott, I have the Mamiya/Sekor body that goes with the lens, along with a Pantech (?) 28-80 f/3.5 and a TON of filters for both lenses. Also have a Vivitar flash and a couple cable releases. It's been a long time since I've shot B&W film, but I just might have to get back into it using some vintage hardware. :-)

Scott & Brian - You both are waaaaay to kind to this old man. First and foremost, we had some exceptional lighting conditions. Combine that with a unique airframe, terrific old glass, and Scott's new A7RII and all I literally had to do was trip the shutter.

That Mamiya/Sekor lens looks very interesting and a quick search online reveals lots of positive comments and images. I'm looking forward to your work with this lens Brian. If I had not already leveraged all my extra cash in Takumars, I might go hunting for one on eBay  ;)

Hey John, I really like these progress photos of the Blenheim. What a unique airplane.

I know I tease you about not painting some of the older airframes, but I have a serious suggestion for your consideration. Has PASM ever considered inviting a custom hot rod shop to come and paint one of your aircraft? If not, I suggest you give these guys a call - http://www.roadkillcustoms.com/#axzz3lpHtWWHE

You could give them a go at one of your funky British airframes and I'd bet they'd do some seriously cool work. Not sure what you'd call an airplane that's been "restored" by a Rat Rod shop, but it would sure be cool  ;)  ;D

I have no doubt that the results could be interesting.  It wouldn't be impossible--but it would have to be an airframe brought in from a scrapyard by the rodders.  In a sense, that is what the "Boneyard Project" airplanes were about.  It would be expensive for them to do with little or no payoff in return.

Just playing around with an old image and liked the results.  This was my second attempt at night shooting... :P  Processing is a challenge...for  sure.

I was playing around with the filter gallery in PhotoShop to see if I could make one of the night shots look a bit more dramatic.  Just trying to learn more about the tools.

Just curious, John... How old are most of the paint jobs that are being redone? Any originals? You guys are going to town and doing a fantastic job!!

It varies and it varies wildly from airplane to airplane.  But, most (but not all) of the airplanes that have been here since before the 1990's have likely been repainted at least once.  For example, the F-105D arrived at PASM in about 1983 and it was repainted in about 1995.  So, this is the second repaint since it has been at PASM.

There are many variables at play--paint formulations, gloss versus flat finish, light colors versus dark colors, as examples--that make the age of paint jobs differ from airplane to airplane.

It varies and it varies wildly from airplane to airplane.  But, most (but not all) of the airplanes that have been here since before the 1990's have likely been repainted at least once.  For example, the F-105D arrived at PASM in about 1983 and it was repainted in about 1995.  So, this is the second repaint since it has been at PASM.

There are many variables at play--paint formulations, gloss versus flat finish, light colors versus dark colors, as examples--that make the age of paint jobs differ from airplane to airplane.

I figured as much. What kind of paint is being applied now? Acrylic urethane or something similar?

There were few made in the first place--60 or so by most accounts--so the number remaining on display is very, very low.  (I only know of two other on display.)

This one is owned by the USMC.  It had been on display at the National Warplane Museum, but USMC shifted the loan over to us.

It just about fills out our line of US Navy fighters.  :)

On it leaving NWM: Since that is business between the USMC and the NWM, I am not aware of the discussions between them about the aircraft and the aircraft loan.  I doubt it is anything out of the ordinary or anything dramatic because if it were it would have been all over the internet by now!

It's always struck me as odd how similar the Phantom and the Banshee look, yet they still look so different.  The FH-1 reminds me of a jet version of the Yak-50 - just a bare-bones single-pilot scarecrow of an aircraft.

Can't wait to see this one on display.

I mentioned a while back I had a bunch of older photos I wanted to post. Earlier this year I needed to look back at photos I had taken over the years and I bumped into quite a few I had never done anything with at all.  So, I decided I will post them in this thread for now from time to time (as time permits!).  They aren't sorted at all and the oldest are from 2006.  There shouldn't be very many duplicates, so most of them are almost new to me!   :)

This evening shot is very nice John, very good balance with light and composition.

I have a question about the F-104 that was just finished. In the shop it was very shiny. Outside it looks more natural without the shine. Do you folks use a degloss of some sort to knock down the shine. It really looks good, you guys do great work. Thanks

It is probably just dust settling on the airplane--it doesn't take long for it to start collecting!

Damn, I've got words, I have all the best words.

And that Kiowa shot is sick.  Just started reading 'Danger Close' by Amber Smith, who was a -58D pilot in Iraq and Afghanistan.  So looking forward to it, no books on the Kiowa Warrior out there despite it being such a crucial contributor.

Just a few pics from back in February while we cleaned up the Ilyushin Il-2 windscreen and cockpit glass and plexiglass.  These really are quickie snapshots as I took these while I was working with all of this stuff.

A couple of months before this I had found that very hot water was the most effective cleaning agent, so we got ourselves an electric stove and first soaked the glass and plex as the first step.  (Both the glass and plex were then polished soon after these images were taken.)

Rylan and I recently spent a fun, hot afternoon down at PASM.  I'm currently hooked on taking photos of the artwork on military aircraft and vehicles, and I'm calling this project The Art of War.  I know it's not the most original title, but it seems fitting.

Anyway, here are a few of my favorites from our recent visit.

For that airplane we expect to have used approximately 20 gallons of ADC Gray when it is all done.  Plus, we'll have used a similar quantity of primer under the paint.  So, repainting an airplane of that size is no small undertaking!

Love the older images from the AMARG....

Thanks, Anna!  On the same topic, I have noticed I have relatively few AMARG images considering how many times I have been over there.  However, shooting through an orange-brown tinted bus window tends to ruin a lot of images!  Maybe that is part of why I have relatively few images...  So, I am glad to have a pre-PASM image of the Harrier.

What is black, green, and white all over?
