Beautiful pano Steven.

Chris that Corsair looks a mile deep. Have you been hanging out with our Arizona wing?

It's not Aspen, but we'll take what we can get around here............

Mmm, that Corsair is made of liquid metal. And that Southwest departure is positively 3D. The bar just keeps getting higher and higher...

Rodolfo, are you sure that the Corsair is made of liquid metal? Just curious to know.

I was informed this evening that Evergreen retired all of their 747's immediately after Christmas. It appears they may be a casualty of this challenging economy. I've enjoyed the opportunities to photograph these "Green Queens" (as Jay eloquently nicknamed them) and will miss their periodic visits. This image was taken on 12/21 and is one of the last flights of this 747-200.

I apologize for not speaking clearly, Jason. Nothing special about the Corsair's manufacturing methods... what I meant was that the Corsair's metal looks so smooth and fluid in Chris's image that it appears almost as a liquid. It was a compliment to the airplane, yes -- I love Corsairs -- but mostly to the photographer.

I think your description fits that image to a tee Rodolfo, and the image/post processing is spectacular.

While I always love a new assignment, I'm very ready to be done til the 2nd. Walking out the door for a day long architectural shoot. This I believe is the last assignment of 2012.

Did you ever do something that you knew was going to go south quickly, but you just couldn't resist?.............

Ah, Christmas movies, donchajustlove'em? We just watched all four Die Hards over the last few days

And thank you for the Boxing Day greetings, Steve (I think)! It was always traditional in the UK to watch a James Bond movie on Boxing Day, but I guess the aforementioned will have to do this year.

You're welcome, Jo. I once observed Boxing Day in England, but never knew what it signified. Here's a paragraph from the Wikipedia article:

"In Britain, it was a custom for tradesmen to collect "Christmas boxes" of money or presents on the first weekday after Christmas as thanks for good service throughout the year.[3] This is mentioned in Samuel Pepys' diary entry for 19 December 1663.[4] This custom is linked to an older English tradition: Since they would have to wait on their masters on Christmas Day, the servants of the wealthy were allowed the next day to visit their families. The employers would give each servant a box to take home containing gifts and bonuses, and sometimes leftover food."

, Jim. Looks like you got more snow in Dallas than we did in Denver: my boys went outside on Christmas Eve to assess the snowball potential, but abandoned the effort.

I always thought Boxing day meant people just started boxing with each other in the middle of the street. I have heard it is quite dangerous. :P

Jeff,

Word is that the USAF has banned the -200's from undertaking airlift charters due to the high fuel costs compared to other types. USAF picks up the fuel bill on these flights.

Very interesting Mark. We were under the impression that during the weeks before Christmas, the Evergreen, Atlas, and Emirates 747's were being used as surrogates for FedEx and UPS to help with the increase in holiday cargo traffic. While I'm sure FedEx and UPS paid well, it was a seasonal job at best. It appears that Federal budget woes dictate more fuel efficient carriers. Thanks for the clarification.

Come on up, if you want snow. We have about a foot on the ground and drifts to 5 feet. Bring your oxygen, as we are at 7860 feet.
