How are you getting flight line photos without the SF patrols going nuts?

One of the very few advantages of being a maintenance guy. I whoop my camera around as if it were my job. I love pictures. I also love taking pics of random bimmers on the street.

Absolutely sensational photographs ! I know for a fact I'd not last 5 minutes in any of the armed forces - unless I was doing IT or electronics work, so images like these which show the 'front line' are amazing to see!

The aerial shots, the one where the two guys are sitting at the end of the load flap .. are astounding !

I like all the pictures so have a big up from me;



Cheers, Dennis!

Many of these pics were taken in both Iraq and Afghanistan. The C-130 Refueling operation was done over the Carolinas on our way to Florida. My Home station is in GA. Nat Geo is doing an Inside exclusive on My Unit. If any of you are interested, here is the first ep to the 6 part series. Ive done maintenance on some of these birds on screen.

Warning!!! There are Graphic scenes in this.
I Apologize in advance if this is too graphic for a post. But if you enjoy a good war movie (Saving Private Ryan, Black Hawk Down), you should be able to stomach this. Though I can only speak for episode one. I havnt seen two yet, been busy at work lately.
