Finally caught one of ATSI's A-4Ns under its own power.  Unfortunately, he flew a straight-in approach.  Typically they shoot a few touch-and-goes before landing.

Fabulous Shot...  Was this from the "hump" near the GA Terminal?

Thanks Jay.  It was shot from that same area, just from a ladder near the fence.  A lot of the time I'll have my ladder up on the hump just for some extra elevation and a little different perspective.

I've only managed to catch CH-53s at Willie once, and that was last summer when a pair of Echoes from HMH-764 (then disestablished) overnighted en route from Edwards to AMARG.
