Here's a fine example of some atmospheric contrast:

First shot: taken when the CH-47 (w/ Canadian civilian registration) was landing.

Second shot: taken when the same CH-47 was departing a short time later.

This was up in Madras, OR.  Between the landing, and subsequent departure, the winds shifted, resulting in the smoke being blown towards the airport.  I'm guessing the Sierra Pacific 737-200 charter out of KIWA is taking crews up to this fire.

Great video.  It is almost 7 min long of just the tanker making the 3 drop passes.  Not an annoying 30 piece that they showed on the news.  Cameraman zooms out on 3rd pass and you can make out the lead plane guiding the tanker in for the drop.

HIGH ROLLER

Shot during mine and Dunny's frustrating trip to Winslow and Show Low at the height of the Wallow Fire last summer.  P-2s and P-3s had been flying out of Winslow all week long, and the day we went, everything was grounded due to very poor visibility over the fire area.  Tanker 7 was the only heavy tanker that we saw in the air that day, and we actually missed the landing because we thought it was landing on the other runway.  Had we stayed put, we would have caught touchdown and taxi shots.  On top of that, we both left our ladders at Winslow, only realizing this once we were in Show Low.  Such a frustrating day.

Neptune Aviation Tanker 07 KPRC 19MAY2012 by KE7WOX, on Flickr

Taken a few days before the city and the USFS started cracking down on people hanging out at the end of the runway, as they were really afraid that they were going to have an engine failure and a subsequent emergency drop right on top of the crowds.
