Thank you for the compliment kind sir.

My vantage point - I was standing on the tower (see image below) next to the green optical landing system (OLS) lights on the left side of the photo. It gave me a very nice location to photograph from slightly above and very close. I hope that explanation makes sense.

Jeff: I was wondering the same on the first harrier shot? Elevated platform?

Killer close-up of the Herc J-A. Nasty panning skills young man.

Edit for TOPP: Another Harrier for Aerosur...

The tight shot of the Harrier pilot and the TOPP were shot from the elevated platform. The image of the Harrier departing towards the gap in the Gila Ridge was shot from the deck at the base of the OLS tower.

BTW Glenn, your A2A images with Grasa Alberto are soooo amazing I can't properly express my level of appreciation. Question young man; when Alberto was the close to your Bonanza, was it starting to push your tail up a tad? I was wondering if your pilot had to feed a little trim in compensation?

Did I say how much I like these images, AMAZING

Hi Jeff:

Thank you kind sir - i especially appreciate your compliments as I admire your work so much. I don't recall David mentioning that happening. He did catch a glimpse of Bert's left wingtip sticking way out past the left side of our airplane and got a little freaked! Amazing bit of airmanship by the Bert pilot.
