Harvey - wonderful framing and strategic use of a shallow DOF to achieve a really terrific image. Are they building a new hanger at the field? Doesn't look like the same location we photographed from a couple of years ago.

Thanks for your comment Jeff, I really do appreciate it. You know I should have actually posted this to the Gila Bend Muni Airport. They couldn't use the hangar at the Aux field, it was being occupied by a vehicle that doesn't allow close up viewing. They moved over to the Muni airport just for this time. It actually was a better location to shoot these guys. I could walk up and down the taxiways and walk out beside the runway for their departure and arrival. I wouldn't mind if they did this again.

Cool shot Harvey.

Was there a precautionary/emergency landing by a Luke F-16 while you were there? I was at Luke in the afternoon and heard something on one of the radio channels about a plane that landed there. I think they said something about an EMU, but I'm not sure that's what he said.

Thanks Chris, my friend said an F16 landed there with an in-flight emergency about an hour before I got there. There were a few Luke birds there for different reasons. By the way I wanted to thank you for the heads up on the Virgin Atlantic 747 landing at GYR a couple weeks ago.

You're welcome Harvey. I check GYR on FlightAware often. It's kind of a difficult place for photography, though. At least without breaking several traffic laws. Grin

Great light on that F-16D. Nice to see a background free of man made structures.

Thank you Scott, I agree that there are some great backgrounds that are clutter free in Gila Bend.
