very nice, always good to see her from new angles. You know she is now in the hanger right? They have a ladder up to the cockpits with the canopies open so you can see into them, along with the engine inlet and nozzle blocks removed, which provide for very cool shots into the engine necelles.
Outrageous operating costs, and the inability to match the resolution of even private satellite imaging, let alone the stuff the military has and won't show us. But it sure did sound good when it flew!
Nice.. the SR was always my favorite plane. The year I saw it a MAFB (at the time), the flight demonstration was incredible... The angle of this shot definitely adds to the intimidation factor. Well done.
Certainly. Canon 20D, 18-55mm lens, mounted on a monopod and held over my head and using a remote shutter release. I first tried this at Nellis and it worked out really well. I got some great shots of the F-117A and the F-22A this way.
Neil Armstrong, Scott Crossfield, Michael Adams, Bill Dana, Joe Engle, Bill Knight, John McKay, Forrest Petersen, Robert Rushworth, Milton Thompson, Joe Walker, Alvin White, and Bob White all had flights as pilots of one of the three X-15s. No men on board.... just legends.
