Beside this beautiful old bird it is the light and the lava-ground, which makes this scenery so unique.
Great arrangement!

You don't see too many older shots of this level of quality, and too see a rare bird in it is even better.

Fantastic picture! The funny thing is that the KC-97 and the A-10 are probably a really good match. The A-10 is so slow that the more modern KC-135 and KC-10 have to roll flaps so that the A-10 can keep up!
