I've lived in the LAX area forever and even when parking on Aviation Blvd (inbound) or Lincoln (24R) you'll NEVER IN YOUR LIFE TIME see anything that comes close to this.

IT'S a FRAUD IMO. Commercial Takeoffs with this tight prolixity? ROFL

Just trivia, but the Connie was the first EVER type to get the moniker Air Force-1.
Eisenhower was aboard the "Columbine" and tower confusion nearly created a midair. AF-1 designation was the result.

Marine-1 is used when the President is aboard the helicopter in transit to a local airport.

It usually denotes a helicopter operated by Marine Helicopter Squadron One (HMX-1 "Nighthawks"), either the large Sikorsky VH-3D Sea King or the newer, smaller VH-60N "White Hawk". Both Helicopters are called "White Tops" because of the paint job they carry.

I agree, but was reminded that there are those that seek the Blue Ribbon for upload count, not even picture quality - - oh well

This is a Nieuport 28C.1 with the famous 94th Aero Squadron insignia of the "Hat in the Ring".
The Nieuport 17 had a more flat fuselage side and a less rounded tail. It also had V interplane struts, where the 28 had parallel struts.

ALL tightly coupled airframes (dist from center of lift to center of rear stab) are extremely difficult to fly, eg: the G-BEE. It killed several pilots with a snap roll on approach. Doolittle was one of the few to survive.

jobeard - This aircraft, on display at the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center, is a Sikorsky JRS-1 and was used by the U.S. Navy.

Look again Joe, it's a Sikorsky JRS-1, a Pearl Harbor survivor.
Nice photos Gary, I wish you would add some information to them.

Chance Vought f4u corsair; This mama has a 14' prop and the 'bent wing' look was necessary to shorten the landing gear for carrier operations. The long nose preempted that until the Brits taught us the big 'round house' approach where the pilot could eyeball the deck from downwind, base and final until the very last moment; square up and just flop-it on the deck. That takes BIG brass B***S

Flown on that bird a couple times. Great experience. Sure beats flying on a cramped airliner

Brian, He does eliminate the watermark from the images. He is actually pretty good at using the spot healing brush and lasso tool. Look at the following image

https://flightaware.com/photos/view/7726804-cf1b9f90634236791d3304ea3de26778cc89d15a/user/indiresha/sort/votes/page/1

You can see where he removed the copywrite symbol as well as the parking stripes are mismatched by bringing the asphalt over using the also tool.

Dave no response from Indy boy or FA! I'm starting to think that the guy is a fraud! His gone from a student pilot to a commercial pilot with in months which raised eyebrows and cos' he covers 2 airports for FA they are reluctant to do anything about it. It's not right. I'm pissed due to, a few years ago one person got an image off the net of mine and started to print T-Shirts out of the image. Took legal auction but it cost me more trying to find and stop the guy who turned out to be a 16 year old kid! It's against the law period and should be stopped but, so many grey areas with stolen pics off the net. One thing we have running for us is the photographer putting a watermark on said photo. If this watermark (COPYRIGHT) is removed by said person like indy man it then becomes a serious CRIME I'm told.

Gary - when such fires are given a name, that's a significant event! Your narrative is very descriptive... :-(

Written on 16.07.2018 by cliff731

The two fires seen here were later named the "Kiowa" and "Hoge" fires. Lightning also ignited another wildfire near Reno Stead Airport (KRTS) during this same storm.

I never thought that John Marotta had mis-identified the Boeing in this photo. I am of the opinion that he was merely mentioning the fact that a B727 had also visited Boston's Logan International Airport. Note his "old metal" comment. He has uploaded quite a number of quality photos and seems to be knowledgeable regarding aircraft types.

Thank you for correcting someone's mistaken impression that this little bird was a 727

what is that attached to the nose gear?--the gear door? How safe was that?
I've never seen that.
