woo, super tired. Attended the 4 Wing CFB Cold lake airshow today! Tried my hand at the whole aviation photography thing (alot harder than I expected haha), quickly found out that it's way different than drifting photography. I definitely need a new lense! Anyways, here are some of my favorites!

Sweeper I have a bunch of F-16 photos, if you want the raw files I'd be more than happy to send you! Same for everyone else!

Anyways, here is the rest of the album in high res glory!

First off, once again apologies for the quality of the iPad camera, lol!

On the way back from Bolivia this morning, in Lima, there was a bit of a ceremony going on for Peru's new president. There were several visitors' "Air Force Ones" there, so I got some snaps.

News article for a little more detail on the transition...

Ecuador...

Image

Chile...

Image

Colombia...

Image

...and a Colombian AF 767 tanker, don't know why that was there...

Image

Brazil, plus a Spanish Falcon behind...

Image

Spain (I love the way they have hung onto the Nationalist cross on the tail, all the way back from the Spanish Civil War and the Condor Legion, LOL!)...

Image

Last but by no means least, the most up to date AF1 there, Mexico's Dreamliner!

Image

A couple more off topic shots now, one for Arctic who likes skinning these...

Image

And an AN-38 drone for some target practice with our new F-5E's...

Image

LOL!

This is in the parking lot where I work; parked in front of one of our warehouses. Since I was on a walk over there this morning I grabbed some pics.

Well, as Nick was asking for more pictures, I'll gladly comply, even though I really need to invest in a better camera...

Antarctic Survey passing through Guayaquil again. Must be a great adventure for them. Canadian reg BT-67 and Twin Otters...

Image

Image

Seems your navigraph is right up to date, confirmed...

Image

Bogota this morning. Traffic congestion was so bad aircraft from the '40s were still waiting to take off! A Fedex there for Tracer, too!

Image

And a rare sight these days; two operational DC-3 based aircraft in one shot together...

Image

Last, one especially for Nick, three sevens at Panama a few moments ago, with a foreboding looking stormy sky as a backdrop!
