U.S. Marines T-45C on short final to 16L at JAN
Posted By: Larrymc, 11-13-2019, 09:25 AM

14 July 2017, I saw that these guys were back shooting approaches at JAN yesterday and had to get some better shots of them. My wife and I were getting out of our car at Lowes which is close to the airport and I looked up to see a pair of T-45Cs in left echelon formation passing over at a pretty high speed. They did a carrier break over the airport and set up for some approaches. I went to the airport today at around the same time I saw them yesterday and they were shooting approaches already. I wanted to set up in my usual position for approaches to 16L but there was a whole construction crew at my location complete with 8-10 dump trucks full of dirt. I moved out to a road to try to get a few shots but had a very limited field of view which left me very little time to aim and shoot, everything worked out pretty well. it was good practice. I got some really strange looks from motorists passing by on the road. I was fully expecting the Flowood Police to roll up and ask me what I was doing.

Many thanks, I appreciate the comment! Where I had to set up to capture this image left me very little time to react. I could hear the aircraft approaching but couldn't see it until it came over some trees and gave me a clear view over a roadway. I was lucky to be able to get the shot. Thanks for the visit!!
