I did manage to catch some fleeting vortices Sunday morning, after the fog had lifted.  Here's a 757 that's in the sun, but he's headed right into the fog that's still lingering about mid-way down the runway.

The first Boeing 757-200 N757A, which now serves as the F-22 Avionics testbed, at Air Force Plant 42 at Palmdale on February 13, 2006


The F-22 Avionics testbed has the nose of an F-22 mounted on its forward fuselage. A sensor wing is mounted above the cockpit. F-22 electronic warfare (EW) and communication, navigation and identification (CNI) sensors are mounted on the sensor wing. A simulated F-22 cockpit is installed in the cabin.

757-200 converted to freighter by Precision Conversions at AeroTurbine in Goodyear, AZ.
Modifications included adding the cargo door, winglets and upgrading the panel.
Precision is an Erickson Aviation company.

Excellent work Jay. I'm a big fan of the 757 platform and you did this one and Precision Conversions proud. Did they do the paint also? I've always liked green on airplanes. BTW, I assume you were a tad warm working this assignment  Wink

This was a complete overhaul including full paint.  Oh, and they installed the internal cargo handling equipment as well.  AeroTurbine is quite the facility.
And yes, this was a pretty rugged afternoon of shooting.  Had to have been nearly 120 degrees on the ramp that afternoon.

Nice balance between the interior and exterior...even with those open windows in the cockpit, bet it was still like an oven in there.

Was that winglet image taken from a cherry picker?  Betting a ladder tall enough for that shot would have been a little too unstable.

Excellent set of shots.  The one with the AeroTurbine logo in the frame is awesome, but the winglet close up is just such a cool perspective.  That thing is gargantuan.

Thanks...

If you look at GYR on Google Maps, you'll see that AeroTurbine actually has quite a bit of real estate north of their northernmost hangar.  We had intended to roll it as far out there as possible and point it more toward the southwest, but airport operations rolled up and said we had to back up into the alley because the north edge of AeroTurbine's ramp was being used as an active taxiway due to airport construction.  That didn't leave me enough room to back up far enough to get the whole plane in one shot without a LOT of clutter behind it.

Well, you certainly used that clutter to your advantage.  The aircraft itself is frame-filling enough that nothing behind it really competes for attention, and the only thing that does is the AeroTurbine logo, which I'm imagining they didn't have much of a problem with.
