EAA Air Venture Oshkosh 2022 - The night show of fireworks and fireballs at KOSH with a USAF KC-135R Stratotanker in the foreground, aptly situated in Boeing Plaza. I would have liked to have used the V-22 Osprey in the foreground, but it was cast with many varying shadows from other aircraft between it and the light sources of the plaza, C'est La Vie... but the results are still stunning.

Gorgeous! The care this ship has received over the years to have such a long service life is admirable.

great photo, thanks for sharing but I think it's a KC-135R not an A. Those big CFM engines ...

Hi there, thanks for that observation, I must have selected the wrong option from the pull down menu on file, I have corrected it now, and hopefully within an hour or so, it'll be correct. I appreciate your input, as I strive for correctness. Enjoy your day.
