I try not to bore with my fetish du jour, currently plane spotting, but............

every once in a great while something so striking and beautiful comes along.........

I was researching the arrival of Jill Biden to Tampa this week(she came in after dark sadly), when I saw this CC-330 Husky 330002 Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) version of the Airbus A330 MRTT(troop and cargo transport) on approach to Tampa International(TPA). Nancy, my co-pilot and I, dashed at above the legal speed limit to the closest favorite spot where I snagged Air Force 1 last year. Literally with 60 seconds to spare before coming into view, I was astounded at the beauty, rivaled only to me, by AF 1.

I enjoy photographing aircraft too. We live on the flightpath to LAX and I can watch jets all day long.

I take so many photos during a session but share only a few that I feel are out of the ordinary and have some impact, but just don't want to be tedious! Thanks again
