This is a photo that I took when I was 16 years old at the 1960 Model Airplane Championships, NAS Dallas in July 1960. This photo was taken right at engine shut down. The base would be closed from 8:00 AM until 5:00 PM then they would start flight operations with all us kids having the run of the place. I call this the miracle photo for it was the only one from that trip that was properly exposed and in focus from my point and shoot camera.

The color, the angle, the pilot's attitude, the story behind the photograph... all these factors contribute to make a 5 stars pic!
