Inside view of B-17 and other shots
Posted By: Eastern Shore Charlie, 01-24-2009, 08:59 AM

Shot inside the Dover AFB Transport Museum (Dover, DE) with the DA*16-50 @ ISO 800, and with mono pod. The interior shot of the B-17 I thought came out really nice considering it was a 2.5 sec exposure leaning the mono pod against the hatch and praying I would not shake so I could get a decent shot. Took 3 tries. I like to visit this place in the winter because of not a lot of people and I am warm while I get my photo fix. I am still amazed at the size of some of the transports they have outside, love all the mechanical engines on display, shapes of the planes, and just love military planes.

Nice exposures and great angles. Thanks for sharing. I'm going to have to visit that place on one of my summer excursions to the Eastern Shore.

It is located on the edge of the Dover AFB. Easy to get to and easy to get out of and shoot down Rte 1 to the beaches. You can actually sit in the cockpit of a C141 that plane is huge....
