I thought the crop shot was good, but these further uploads are a whole different ball game. Fabulous work Joan, and showing us something different.

Thanks, Gavin. I usually don't get to take these kind of photos due to the airplanes landing on the other side but, the wind shifted allowing me to snap her.

This Japanese Self Defense Force active duty aircraft does NOT have U.S. registration number N9907. 9907 is the Japanese SDF registration number.

Well Paul Wisgerhof, there is nothing I can do about it. Just another FA mistake.
Gavin Hughes
Joan... FA does have its quirks (e.g no General Dynamics F111s only Grumman and we get wrong aircraft types as a result) but we have to work with what we've got and personally, I'm glad you and others take the time to post interesting pics. So a detail goes skewiff, at least we get to see the aircraft and an explanation by the photographer takes care of the glitch.

I know that FA has it's quirks but on the whole it is good and that is why I post here.

Thanks fholbert and Micheal Wulfsohn,
Always cool to see this one when it is taking off or landing. I have only seen it land on water once.
