All three General Electric engines are getting some golden light, while the crew spends the night resting at Lajes after a long flight! There were 60 of these great machines delivered to the USAF and are quite common to see over here! [Canon 7D + Sigma 120-400]

Gorgeous light on this photo! Interesting to see the fan on the center engine, and the toe-in of the wing mounted engines. Also interesting that the nose gear doors don't close flush to the fuselage. Lots of details here - 5 stars!

Amazing...looks like she's all ready to be fuelled, with the fire extinguisher and Stewart Stevenson power cart sitting there.

5*. No, 10*. Christ, how many stars can you give? I always admire Lajes pictures, I know you guys know EXACTLY when to get the best light, but the framing and cropping is first-class too. Keep it up.
