If the PSA schemebird had been in this location just a few minutes earlier, I could have clicked JBU's New York International heritage paint in a picture with this PSA scheme holding. That would have been a fantastic catch. But the jetBlue landed just as the PSA was taxiing away from the terminal. I did get them together in several clicks, but it was when both were taxiing.

It's engine testing. normally they have an engine mounted on that pylon.

Are they experimenting with Canards or some sort of Avionics" Very interesting.

This has to be one of the few 757s out there with an Experimental/R&D airworthiness certificate.

@Viv thanks. I am not trying to attack Chris personally as he does have a few that are good. Again I don't have a problem with him tagging each plane once or twice, especially if he has a better shot than his original. But the excessive spamming of the photo section with literally thousands of blurry photos from miles away has no redeeming value to this community and if anything I feel his spamming clogs up the photo section with repetitive photos.

I think I will start a discussion in the message board section about it Viv. Maybe that way we can get the attention of the FA staff and ask them to weigh in. Please feel free to chime in as well.

Nice catch of the classic UA 757. I look forward to getting some good catches of them in the coming months.

Written on 22.01.2018 by William Hamlin

That is a pretty decent capture you got there. Good shot !!

Written on 22.01.2018 by Viv Pike

@ Mr Pippen - unfortunately Mr Collinsworth does not care a hoot about what other FA users think of his "pictures". A number of users have in the past posted similar thoughts to yours, myself included, but the upload of these kinds of photos continues unabated, by the thousands. If you view his album sorted by "newest", you might find 1 (yes, ONE) semi-suitable photo uploaded in the last month, among the thousands of others. I agree wholeheartedly that the FA moderators should step in.

Written on 22.01.2018 by Viv Pike

Hey man, I can see that this isn't actually a 737-800 (VH-VNQ). This is actually an A320-232 (VH-VNC)

Might want to change your tags :P

Not so fun on a very hot day with a full load of pax and bags and fuel transiting the Central Valley ! It was not unusual to ask OAK center for a lower altitude as we couldn't even hold onto FL 25! Someone remind me why those Electras were sold off...

Written on 22.01.2018 by Ned Gehringer

Hard to believe that these NAF N planes flew actively up to 1961 with the USN. They were last based at the US Naval academy for the midshipmen to get acquainted with aviation!

Magnificent!

Written on 22.01.2018 by Geoff Arkley

Why Chris? I don't get it. As somebody that takes LOTS of aviation photos I don't understand the reasoning to post these blurry and basically useless photos on FA. You are literally clogging up the photo section with this dreck.

For example, look at N332NV you have posted here. There are 16 photos total on FA and 14 of them are equally uninteresting photos posted by you. If you were posting 1-2 of each plane I would not have as much of an issue as you are tagging new planes you have spotted. Cool. N121UW has only 14 photos and 7 are similarly photographed by you. You should continue to post photos of new and interesting aircraft that you spot. But blurry shots from miles away of a shadow are not what FlightAware photos needs and have no redeeming value. In fact, I submit that these photos bring down the FA experience for everybody else as we have to sift through the massive amount of refuse you create in the photo section. Of your 21000+ photos I would say no more than 100 are at the level that should be posted.
Just my opinion, but I believe that FA moderators should step in and purge these photos from the system.

Yes, very possible! Probably truer than my thought. Thanks Nathan! :)

Steve Brooks....I think we were at Barksdale together (around 75-78). I also think you were in the class behind me at Vance (7404). Enjoying retirement in Broken Arrow, Ok. Hope all is well.

je suis étonné de constater qu on parle du passage du B29 en europe WW2----(I was 15) Mais je pense qu il a été utilisé en Asie au départ de Guam et les Philipines pour crosser le Japon (si je me souviens par les radios et journaux de cette époque.nous étions friands d aviation et de forteresses volantes.

Charles Peele - this panel belongs to N695MG, a Rockwell Commander 695B Jetprop 1000. Its present flight activity appears to be in Africa since 2018 started. While it was possibly exported out of the U.S.A., this a/c maintains a current FAA registration.

This was the first time N694DL has visited Reno since the "Spirit Of Freedom" military tribute was added to its regular Delta scheme. I arrived at 0550 hours just to be certain I would be able to see and photograph this special livery Delta fleetbird. All five of the US military services (Marines, Army, Navy, Air Force, and Coast Guard) are honored as the insignia of each branch is presented just below the word FREEDOM. From myself (and on behalf of all Americans who have ever served, or are serving, in our nation's military forces), "Thank You," Delta.

The persons giving this photograph anything less than a five should be grossly ashamed of themselves. Where else is there a photograph of a L-1011 Tanker's lower rear section. Anyone who has had the opportunity to walk around the underside of these large aircraft and observe the multiple panels, ports, intakes, exhausts, etc. would appreciate the photographer obtaining this rare and descriptive photograph. BRAVO, BRAVO, BRAVO and THANK YOU to John Marotta! An additional thank you to Authur Moss for his comment and identification of this Royal Air Force Tanker. Good Job!

Flew on this aircraft DEC 1984 MIA LAX First Class, then, Jan 2 1985 LAX MIA First Class. The outbound was the well known Flight 5 and return was Flight 4. Nicknamed the Movie "Star" flights because of various Hollywood, CA actor/commuters utilizing the rare non-stops between LAX & MIA. The flight numbers went on to other aircraft on the international routes, some around the world as the fantastic Pan American Airlines was known for. Miss PAA greatly, but, have very fond memories.
