Stinson SR-9F captured by D750 / 24-70f2.8

Spring conjures up green fields and flower carpets in our minds, what could be the perfect stage to set our aircraft star in. You might drive past an airport and see a lush green strip of green and think, “What a perfect backdrop for a static” especially when everything else is brown. Well, that perfect green strip is for launching and recovering aircraft, a location you can’t park a plane for photography. And that brown area everywhere else, well that could be your only option which isn’t really an option. Why the brown? Airports tend to not encourage green grass everywhere for reasons from bird strikes to bugs to planes confusing them for a landing strip. You can see in the photo of the Stinson the green strip behind the plane and the lovely “grass” we had to park on. Yes, there can be green grass you can use but that’s the exception and not the rule. Spring doesn’t guarantee green.
