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.

Looks like the Navy is giving a ride to a number of warbirds for VJ Day 75th anniversary celebrations in Hawaii.

N222FT is not the former Dutch, interestingly N9767 does have European links, as it used to 'live' at Paris-Orly...

The close up was from near the main gate, the at sea pic was shot from the national monument at the end of Pt Loma.

Sadly, I found out about the Cats after they got here, otherwise I'd have tried to get them in the air. ...maybe when they come back.
