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.

This was only the 2nd time in over 10 years I've caught somebody lifting off from Runway One One. The 747 wouldn't be able to make the turn to avoid Pt Loma if it had used Two Nine, so it made a downwind take off and took off towards the town. The C-17 came in from Bangor, which is where the 747 was headed. A legacy Hornet on a test hop after coming out of the rework facility and VRM-30's only CODsprey rounded out the afternoon.

I'd be happier if it had squadron colors on it, but it seems they are taking their time with that. Even as is, it is much nicer looking that the USMC Ospreys. They came in pretty late in the day, so the sun was really helping with this shot.
