They are reduced somewhat by the conversion to jpg. They were shot in raw, but then I had to convert them.

That's almost definitely the 400 sitting by them too it looks like. The landing gear is a giveaway.

That is sweet.

The remote is probably the best thing for clear shots.

You'll get some awesome images for sure.

I'm looking forward to going to Pinal and Goodyear with it and getting some shots of the stored aircraft there. It'll probably be handy for my trip up to Moses Lake this summer to catch the MRJ too.

Can you upload the raw someplace?

I can load it into Lightroom

I'll try to tomorrow. We're probably going to sit near Dyess on our next load getting more pictures of stuff flying around there. I'll see if I can find somewhere that takes the raw file.

Stuff like this might prompt me to move out west.

But it would annoy the hell out of my wife if I was out taking aircraft pics all the time though.
Lol

I plan to be once we're off the road. My other half is gonna go to some sites with me. I have all kinds of normal aircraft pictures that I've taken that were fun to get.

Just a thought, but could the mystery aircraft on the left be a prototype Advanced Super that Scaled Composites are working on? Boeing could be subbing Northrop who did develop the original YF-17, and they in turn use their Scaled division to investigate changes to the aircraft. That would keep the program on the low side and not attract much attention.

Could it be they are going to use it for the USAF's LAA program? It would make a good starting point.

That's a possibility. With it flying already it has the potential for several programs or foreign sales.

Yeah, but what fun is that?

Possibly there as escorts or film crew?

The pilots like the cafeteria?

They need the f-22 speed perhaps?

I know the rumors say the 21 is sub-sonic but....

That's an interest thought.

A pod would be electronic. Electronics need to be covered. Scaled Composites work with fiber glass and needed time to install the pod and they work 9-5 so the jets (whatever type) are there in the daylight hiding in plane sight.

I see the double or double tail aircraft but the right hand fin look out of place to me.

I agree with you about the bottom picture.

Sorry, i have to go get a towel and clean up the pee.

Do you have really good printer?
Go old school print the raw image and grab a magnifing glass.

But that only works if you are home.

The airshow issue is a valid theory and there are few secrets in the 4th generation aircraft .

You think you did...

I rolled through in the morning and there was just the 400 there, so when I saw these two after zooming in, I was surprised as hell. I was so focused on them I totally forgot to even look to see if the Virgin hangar was still cracked.

Is the Virgin hanger on the right of the big brown building ?
