Workin New Subjects and Questionable Backgrounds
Our good friend and supporter Bob acquired a new plane, this 500s Shrike and she’s a beaut! I personally have never seen one so never photographed it. Since it would be one of our air to air targets, I wanted to get a few static shots of it.
By the time I moved over to the Shrike the clouds had already closed in. To make the most of the opportunity though we pulled the plane out and positioned it on the ramp. It just amazed me how our hosts, the AZ Wing of the CAF treats us like kings and spoils us.
With that ability to position the planes as we need for the available background, even with the clouds change we can make the image. I like both images for different reasons. The 1st Shrike because of the graphic, the 2nd because of the gesture and the NanChang, well that’s obvious, the red.
