Film scans from 1993: Air force Reserve C5 Galaxy
Lens: Takumar 28-80 Camera: K 1000 
Posted By: ismaelg, 09-02-2010, 07:25 PM


More practice scanning negatives. From the same air show in 1993 as the F16 I posted earlier. A tiny little aircraft
I'm still learning the process of scanning, but I think it is presentable now. Still not 100% satisfied but that will always push me to get better.

Air force Reserve C5 Galaxy

"Invasión Aerea '93" Air Show

The vigneting effect was caused by a big rubber hood that interfered with the widest range of the zoom lens Hey, I was a real newbie

Another great series of gems- was that C5 still in working condition? Seems like something is missing some the inside (or maybe I've just never seen one with both ends open!

Opening both ends allowed cargo to be loaded and unloaded faster. When parked, the landing gear "kneeled down" to make it easier to drive on and off, that's why it looks so low to the ground.

Great scans, I had forgotten how big this beast was. Thanks for sharing.

Very impressive bird. I think you could have a football game in there. Ismael Your scanner works it out. Thanks for posting.

I thought the same thing Adam. You can see the cockpit a bit more on the next to last scan.

Thank you all!
Adam, it was an active operational aircraft.
Maybe they removed some stuff for safety, knowing that a lot of curious people were going to get inside.

Looks pretty good for a "newby", Ismael,
3rd shot really shows size of that thing,
Scans look very good, I need to sit down and do same.
