These last volley of images are terrific Harvey, Scott and Joe. I'm particularly fond of the images you've all taken of the static aircraft, especially the somewhat "derelict" platforms.

Like Joe, "Really digging this one, the graininess definitely adds something to it.", your post processing of "FALLEN STAR" is superb Scott. In my opinion, your conversion to a monochrome image helps my eye to "see" the composition you've framed. The multiple cylindrical shapes of the fuselage, turbofans, and fuel tanks are wonderfully bifurcated by the wing, horizontal stabilizers, and tail fin; thus creating a very interesting "geometry" to the final image. Great work.

Thank you Joe and Jeff! I generally haven't liked the Jetstar in Vietnam camouflage but the faded dark paint worked well in this case by simplifying the shape and giving it an old worn look.

That's actually the "Euro 1" camo scheme that was more of a late-70s-to-late-80s wraparound pattern.  One of my personal favorites, especially on the OV-10. 

Have you seen any shots of NASA Dryden's old Jetstar, N814NA?  Absolutely gorgeous.

Joe, you are correct. Temporary lapse. I was thinking of some photos I'd seen recently on the net of C-140s in the Vietnam style camo. The scheme I liked best on these was the old bare metal and day glow orange. Don't think I ever saw one except in photos.

Cool photograph of the Canberra Scott. Is the "squat" stance typical or is there some "atrophy" in play? The sun has not been kind to this unique airplane.
