There I am staring at this thumbnail thinking" Wow! That Canadair challenger looks enormous compared to the other bizjets there!"

Hehehe... and before everyone jumps on my case, I couldn't see the U/C so it looked like the Canadair was behind them! A quick view of the full sized image and sanity is restored!

Nice shot Tony!
 Big thumbs up

Thanks  Smile

Silly thing is I had this sitting in my "not to upload" stack after a previous "badinfo" rejection. Guess I got it right this time.  Smile

In case anyone was wondering how I got the angle, it was shot from the top of a hanger at the Ryan factory adjoining Lindbergh Field. (Sorry, no public access there  Sad )
