There are a lot of memories when I was
taking pictures of aircraft.I guess the one that
sticks out is at BUR
. Off San Fernando Rd,there was
a insert street that took you right on top of runway 15.
One Saturday, with my aviation radio and camera, a PSA
L-188a approached for take-off.But there was a problem,
because the aircraft stopped in front of me and the pilot
was trying to talked to me through the aviation radio to
inspect something.But the engines were so loud,that I couldn't hear him
and waved him off by using my arms motion over my ears.
Now, I assure you.If I had spotted something, I would have pulled
my tool box out my car,jumped on the wing ,and fix the problem making
the passengers feel really secured!

P.S.The pilot turn the aircraft around and had it inspected.
