KC-10: Your friendly gas station in the air
Lens: Takumar 28-80 Camera: K-1000 ISO: 100

More film scans from 1993. Let me know when you are fed up with my images of 1993.... so I can start posting pics of 1992

More practice scanning negatives. From the same air show in 1993 as my other posts. I'm still learning the art of scanning. Still not 100% satisfied but that will always push me to get better.

KC-10 tanker. Air refueling. A flying gas station. Yes, I know it is not exactly gasoline but you get the point.

Pentax K1000
Takumar 28-80mm
Kodak Gold 100

In this particular set of images, noise and grain were (are) a big problem. Still visible but I did my best to deal with it.

Modified DC-10, right? Very nice! Impressive that you can refuel in the air, considering the speeds of both aircraft!

Thanks Adam!

Yes, it is based on the DC-10 airframe.
