Steel Bird
Posted By: c13_, 06-23-2008, 10:18 AM

This weekend I was able to get upclose and personal with this wonderful piece of machinery and snap a few shots. I just wish that the light was a little better and it would have been nice to get my hands on a scissor lift to get some better angles, but I guess you can't have everything.

Steel bird or Gas Hawk?

SHots are good considering you didn't have much in the way of options for viewpoints or background, but I have to question the title. I seriously doubt there is much steel in the bird in view

Thanks for the comments, I really wish that there was a better background.

I'd have to agree with you there. I think you hit the nail on the head with Gas Hawk.

Nice shots of an aging aircraft, I remember back in the 80's when the first dozen arrived Canada is to get the new X-35 Joint Strike Fighter in a few years.

Thanks for the reply. I am looking forward to seeing the JSF when it arrives, maybe once they retire this old girl she'll find a home next door in the museum for more to enjoy.
