Forum rules
ImageThis is the forum to share your recent aviation photos with the rest of the community, being photos not older than six months at the moment of topic opening. Theme-based topics, not about recent events, should go into the sub-forum.
Although we will not screen beforehand, we reserve the right to delete any images, especially if clearly unsharp or otherwise low in quality. For more information on how to upload you images, check this post.
In topic titles, please use airfield names in stead of just codes, and be clear about what kind of photos your viewers can expect (e.g. CIV/MIL, location etc.).

Finally, bring any photo criticism understandable and to the point, not cynical or offensive! Simultaneously, do not feel offended by criticism per se, but simply explain your motives, taste et cetera, or ignore if you wish so.

Williams-Gateway Mesa Arizona 04/18/15 [MIL]

Post by cpasley »

It had been 2 years since I been to Williams-Gateway airport so I decided to make a day of it, I spent a total of 7hrs on the bus but as you can see it was well worth it. I didnt find out till I got there that runway 30L was closed so was not good for aerial shots but plenty good for ground. This was my first "Harvest Hawk" 130J and a first for anyone a VMFA-314 "D" model hornet, im told "borrowed" from VMFA(AW)-225 hence the name "Vikings" on the drop tanks.
