Default Pics: B-2 bomber & nasa 747 sc

The B-2 "Spirit Of Alaska" did several flyovers during a recent airshow

A few days before I was out at a jobsite just near the airfield, when the Shuttle Carrier flew its approach, did a fly over, then a touch & go, and then its final touchdown NOT a good pic, sorry ... but it was great to see it fly !!

At the airshow, I was at a corporate chalet, which provided lunch to some of the crews of aircraft flown in for the show. A couple of men from the NASA crew sat with us, and after showing them the pics of their fly-in, they offered me and my son a cockpit tour of N911NA. We were able to avoid the large crowd waiting to get in (public tour was just of the main hollow-cabin), and spent some time in the cockpit as my son (4) asked what every knob and switch did :lol: It was a great opportunity to see more that the average bear:lol: So I would like to thank Arvid Knutson for taking time out for a personal tour. THANKSyes!. He also gave us some nice high quality photo.


NOTE: the Yolk has the old NACA and NASA's logos
This is Arvid Knutson and my son along the tour.Thanks Arvid

Some great shots. I actually got to see her bring in "Discovery" to Barksdale AFB a couple years ago. One of those "probably never see that again" chances.

Excellent Pics! The Zoom Shot Of The 747 Is Not Your Fault. Note The Atmosheric Haze Coupled With The Heat Wave. The Best Lens Or Photographer Wouldn't Get Better.
