Mostly primer for now--the primary paint color will soon be over the entire airplane.

How many gallons of paint does a big plane like that need?

Looking forward to seeing it out on display again.

That is cool you were able to get out to the Selfridge Airshow.  I grew up a few miles southwest of the base.

Looking forward to the Coolidge Fly-In season...  October can't get here soon enough.

Been experimenting a little with stitching together multiple images. I've started off with just two images so far to test it out but I'm hoping to try with even more images in the future.

Looking good Jonathan....

Atlas Air 747-481 N263SG departing from Sky Harbor on August 2, 2017.

Wonder what it was transporting....  Arizona Cardinals to Canton, Ohio for the Hall of Fame Game perhaps.

If anyone has any pics of N503RT, a 1959 Aero Commander 500, I'd sure be interested in them (new or old).  My family owned the aircraft in the 80's and kept it at CHD.  I have heard it's been spotted still in the local area.

This shot circa '85

DJ,  It is still at Chandler, in one of the hangars.  Ask around where Don Pew's hangar is there.  My husband, Len, can't remember what the hangar number is but could show you if you ever run into him out there.

An immersive 360 aerial over the 'boneyard' captured October, 2015.

Of interest is the placement of the tail sections of the B-52s.  As part of the 1991 START (Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty) between Russia and the US the tail sections of the decommissioned B-52s are to be placed at a 30 degree angle to and aft the remaining portion of the aircraft and left for at least 60 days.  This serves to allow the Russians to verify by satellite that the aircraft had been destroyed.

Such a cool image DJ...

Great shot Jeff, this is a pretty rare event. I'm glad you were there to capture it, perfect location.

As always, thank you for the kind words my friend.  It was an honor to be there and a very special experience for me.

Well done Jeff....
