Skywatch...






Hey everyone,

Happy Skywatch!!

I'm changing it up abit. These two photos were taken from the recent airport drill I photographed. The first photograph is the men from Cumberland County Engine 45 on a access road at the airport. If you look straight down the roadway, that is Sarah Palins plane sitting there. If you look straight up about the middle of the photo, you see an aircraft flying towards where we are standing. The second photo is of that aircraft flying overhead. It is a USAF C17 Cargo Plane (Thanks to Sparky for the info on the plane)

The aircraft flew overhead several times, so I'm not exactly sure what they were doing in the area.

Have a great week everyone!!

Nice photos. The clouds in the first make the plane look so insignificant.

Sarah Palin's plane?!!! How cool is that?! Great shot of the plane overhead! I love those shots!

Woody said...

Thanks for the nice feedback everyone. Dew, Sarah Palin happened to be in Lancaster County speaking at an event the same day as the drill was taking place.

Very cool photos!
When my husband was in the Marine Corps we rode on a cargo plane to Hawaii, it was a refueling plane and we refueled a few planes along the way. Really cool view to see that from the belly of the plane!

Happy Skywatch :)
