Waiting for the P&W to show up in Ledyard this (freaking cold) morning, a Coast Guard HH-60J Jayhawk made a trip up and down the Thames. Caught him here on the way back south passing over the NRG power station across the river in Montville, CT
Many years ago in a land far far away I shot my 1st air show with an F2 & Tri-ex. Actually I think it was somewhere here in CT. I did manage to get a couple of good images - one I especially liked but haven't done any neg scanning. So time goes on & a few years ago started shooting a couple of the...

I had to go to FedEx at Bradley International in Windsor Locks, CT this afternoon and despite the rainy weather I decided to shoot some planes. I got a nice surprise too, Southwest's "Maryland One" made an appearance. They're all a little soft but still look ok.
Amazing what a telephoto will do to compress the shot... :D
Took it while I was at the CT Air Guard's Air & Space day at BDL. A freaking hot, humid & hazy day.
