Remark
Photographer
162411 (cn 0243/A193) Shockwave's Schlieren effect! Air compressed by jet's pressure wave so light is bent thus this phenomenon. Awkward crop due to jet out racing panning with a handheld Canon 1Ds MKIII + 600m L IS lens. Schlieren techniques have been used for decades in laboratory wind tunnels to visualize supersonic flow about model aircraft, but not full scale aircraft until recently. Dr. Leonard Weinstein of NASA Langley Research Center developed the first Schlieren camera but this picture is using a normal camera.

Plane Boats
Boeing 307 Stratoliner
Off-Airport - Miami
USA - Florida, September 27, 2003
Remark
Photographer
N19904 (cn 1997) Formerly owned/used by Howard Hughes (bought 1939 TWA). One of 10 307s built. First high-altitude commercial and first four-engine airliner in scheduled domestic service. Total of 500 flight hours over 25 years until hurricane damage in 1964. In 1974, wings/tail off, and fuselage converted motor yacht. The “plane-boat” features twin V-8 inboards incorporating the original aircraft cockpit controls that were used to fly the plane, propelling the vessel over 20 mph. Shame or glory? I am not sure. Only in Miami!

Boeing 307 Stratoliner
Off-Airport - Fort Lauderdale
USA - Florida, September 24, 2005
Remark
Photographer
N19904 (cn 1997) Howard Hughes's personal BBJ cockpit. He sat at these very controls and piloted this very plane. It was his private Stratoliner bought in 1939. This is the world's first BBJ and is revolutionary in design. Now she cruises the waterways of Ft.Lauderdale off the Isle of Venice thanks to the preservations efforts of Mr.David R. Drimmer. Excellent forward visibility.

Remark
Photographer
N19904 (cn 1997) Howard Hughes's personal BBJ cabin. Originally planned for an around the world record flight with spartan interior and extra tanks. She was refitted by Boeing (hence 1st BBJ built). Now with original Raymond Loewy designed furniture and fittings featured in the salon next to the original bar that Rita Hayworth had custom windows installed so she could see the clouds go by while she poured martinis for many famous guests. The computer is a modern touch. Cockpit door is open. Preserved by Mr. David R. Drimmer.

Off-Airport - Kennedy Space Center
USA - Florida, July 8, 2011
Remark
Photographer
OV-104 (cn OV-104) The last slide of the one and only slide camera at the last space shuttle launch. I put a Minolta X-700:50mm lens & Fuji Velvia 50 (F/8@1/1000) on the pad. Secured to the ground with six 9 inch stakes and three 30 lb sandbags at each leg of the tripod. Camera was fired by the sound of the main engine start and shot all 36 frames with this being the last complete frame. Despite being a dull overcast day, the film captured a better dynamic range than digital hence resulting in richer color prints.

CS-DAY (cn 5282) For more than a year I saw this airplane (and the D-EXUG) fly almost every weekend for some acrobatic fun with random people to enjoy! Landing on runway 35 after some incredible maneuvers over the runway! [Canon 7D + Sigma 120-400]
