One of my last shots of the year 2005. When night rolls around, things become quiet and peaceful at HNL, and this Kamaka Air Super DC-3 is seen resting quietly on the South Ramp, silhouetted against a nice orange glow from the main terminal. From a bug's eye view, the heatwaves in the distance leave a nice reflection of light on the dark tarmac. That streak of light under the wing is from an arriving NW B753. Has to be one of my favorites!

Jerrold - you've outdone yourself again! Great balance between light and dark. This would have been a great calendar shot.

Aircraft historically appropriate to the airfield. Interesting to see background lights through PAX windows and reflections through the fin - rudder gap. Unusual low level illumination very nice. Just enough front side illumination to pick up fuselage stripe and N number. Prop blade positions couldn't be better. Nice.

Beautiful light. The plane seems to sit on a golden pavement.
