warmwynds- If your comment was directed at me... and I'll presume it was, then allow me to say that you asked the question... and I provided an objective reply. I might suggest you should refrain from asking such a question in the future as you seem to be overly sensitive regarding the voting on your photos uploaded here.

Thank you for the explanation! Great!
Here's one of many You Tube videos of the same:

What gets hung on the four pylons located at the wing roots and between engines 1 and 2, and 3 and 4? ALCMs? It looks like Mr. Bear can carry 16 of whatever it is.

The original concept for this a/c is the TU-4, a direct copy of B-29s 'stolen' by Stalin in the late 40's. A/C engineers have written that Boeing engineering still can be detected in this a/c. Regardless,this and the TU-114 passenger version are amazing and awesome statements to flight!

Written on 25/05/2018 by Bror Monberg

Thank you! I'm not really sure which instruments those are, but I know the National Science Foundation uses this aircraft for sampling and the measurement of atmospheric conditions.

Always interesting how Russian planes resemble American. Either a case of similar problems have similar solutions or one hack of an espionage program!

Sorry to waste your time with this comment. If you look at my other 1499 photos you see composition to no end. For what it is worth if I had moved up to the fence I would have been to close. Only took it just to have something from this new location that had just that American on the tarmac. when I got home I see that the same aircraft was in two of my other locations.......was expecting a poor if anyone voted. Take away all that debris in blocking that aircraft and I wouldn't be wasting my time writing this............good day.

I find this jet class are very limited for people in the bigger 6 foot Hight and leg space, let alone the shoulder area.

Hi Aaron, Nice shot. Any knowledge of the under-wing attachments?

warmwynds - a/c photos snapped thru chain link fences invariably "suffer" in FA viewers voting as a rule. Almost universally so. Sorry... but you asked and that is the truth.

BTW, I declined to vote on this photo... that's not my one-star vote. Nothing wrong with your text at all... but you cannot excuse away that unsightly fence obstruction from ruining what otherwise might be a decent photo composition.

The presence of ground handling equipment that obscures part of an aircraft should also be avoided. Ditto for any other obstructions such as that utility pole tension cable.

Written on 25/05/2018 by cliff731

I appreciate the larger background. Photos of aircraft in flight that are cropped to just at the nose and tail (or wingtip) have a very static feel to them, like portraits. This photo gives the plane room to move!

Aaron Kunz - you are welcome and thanks for the kind words!

Written on 25/05/2018 by cliff731

Thank you! Those Frontier animals make for a fun challenge in trying to catch them all.

Written on 25/05/2018 by Aaron Kunz

Thank you! This is one of my favorites, too! I think because it is one of the few Frontier animals that is a bright color, so he really stands out.

Written on 25/05/2018 by Aaron Kunz

I thought it was kind of rare, too! I would imagine it needed them coming from Alaska.

Written on 25/05/2018 by Aaron Kunz

I miss it, too! It was a VERTREP between us on the SHASTA and the CARL VINSON (CVN 70) several years ago.

Written on 25/05/2018 by Aaron Kunz

Thank you! And cliff731 - thank you for the information. That is great history!

Is the poor vote for the obstructions or my text was too difficult to understand?

This is actually a 337, it has retractable gear, the 336 had fixed gear. I worked for a Cessna dealer when these things came out. If Cessna had made better provisions for carrying luggage I think this would have really taken off. It was the only twin engine airplane I felt comfortable taking off on one engine.

Was this pic taken on the airshow on May 12-13? I'v been there, but my pics are much worse than this one

Written on 25/05/2018 by Alexandr Molyavko

Nice pic, Brian! I was checking out some of the previous Air Force Ones and found this on Joe Baugher's website reference this aircraft:

72-7000 Boeing VC-137C MSN 20630. Special 707-353B for Office of the President. Supplemented the famous *Air Force One*. Used civil test reg of N8459. Donated to Reagan Presidential Library, CA Sept 2001. To San Bernadino IAP Sep 8, 2001 for preservation. Now on display inside Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, Simi Valley, California.

Super photo. Where was this taken?

Written on 25/05/2018 by Kevin Harris

I miss being out at sea, doing things like this.

Written on 25/05/2018 by Bernie Behling

Thanks for the info, David! It did confuse me a little, though. So, I looked up the aircraft you mentioned (VC-137C, 62-6000) on Joe Baugher's website. If I have it right, the three I mentioned in my last post (including the one pictured above at PASM) were converted to VIP transports at some point and were, or could have been, used to transport the president. But the one at the National Museum of the Air Force that David linked to was built in 1962 specifically as an "Air Force One" and was the one that JFK was using when he made the infamous trip to Dallas in 1963. Here is the info from Joe Baugher:

62-6000 Boeing VC-137C MSN 18461. Special 707-353B for Office of the President. The famous "Air Force One". Now on display at USAF Museum.

Thanks again, David!

timparr - a quick search of the current U.K. civil aircraft registry proves your presumption to be 100% correct!!!

Written on 25/05/2018 by cliff731

Yes... thanks for sharing this exemplary and superlative photo capture with us!

*F*I*V*E* Stars!!!

BTW, the 172nd AW, based at Allen C. Thompson Field ANG Base and co-located at KJAN, Jackson, MS, swapped their aging Lockheed C-141C Starlifters for the current fleet of C-17A Globemaster III aircraft. Circa 2003 thru 2004, if I recall correctly.

That initial C-17 a/c as delivered, USAF s/n 02-1112, was named "Spirit of the Minutemen". From the unit's fact sheet and history, "C-17A -1112 is also the first Globemaster assigned to the Air National Guard".
