Was out working in the yard yesterday and noticed that the pattern for the airport was bringing them in not too far from our house. It doesn’t happen often, but when it does we are treated to a non-stop line of aircraft coming in. They weren’t as close this time as they sometimes are, but as this one came in I said “that’s a military aircraft”. Beyond four engines, I couldn’t really make out any details with the naked eye, so I quick grabbed the digital camera, hit the 12x zoom, and snapped a couple.
I lived in Colorado Springs for seven years a while back, and I must admit that I miss seeing the military planes coming and going.
