Tower, we’d like to return to the airport

Han since I took the picture and DID NOT photo shop you need to back off. I was in San Francisco on 10/08/2021 and I have the other Fleet Week pictures. Can you tell me where you were at Fleet Week

Reminds me of the movie: "Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines"

Paul Hurford, did you not read Bill's description accompanying the photo? Yes it is a P-2. VP 56 is a squadron not an aircraft type, as stated. And yes VP 56 flew both P-2's and P-3's. Pay attention, then comment.

Why do the older jet airliners look so perfect (at least in my aging eyes)?

1979 USCG Aviation Machinist Mate "A" school. My first radial experience, pull a jug, put it back on, time it and ground run. Start the APU and the cabin fills with smoke:) Then I was stationed at San Fran, but I only got to do one mission and they phased out the -16. Truly a great life experience, I believe many will miss the radials and the cool sound, I know I will.

Agree with Joseph. Never seen the 'Blues' quite captured this way before - almost looks like a repeating wallpaper design!

That's about a pucker factor one-zero encounter. Excellent Capture though.

As I'm unsure about how to post a reply to a comment made on this forum, Consider Keith Brown's comment about the B757 below. I second, Third, Fourth and Fifth his comment. That airplane was beyond fantastic. It should have continued to be one of Boeing's premier single isle aircraft replacing the follow on B737 models. It's likely Boeing didn't do that might have been due to Southwest Airlines high volume use of the B737. But it really angered me when the B757 was pulled from Production.

Great shot. And you can still use that ADF to listen to the ball games!!

Agree with Ken Lane. Coast Guard Air Detachment Sangley Point< R.P. had three of the Goats used for servicing the CG Loran Stations in the PI.

That's not a Widgeon. It is an albatross. My first job in Grumman when I started as a 19 year old was logging in all the OOPS parts for the HU-16 Albatross back in June 1966. I got to love the plane even though it wasn't in production for many years.

I believe that the photo above represents a P2V7 Neptune, not the VP-56 as stated. The VP-56 Dragons P-3C Orion (56) Model, were a completely different airframe from the P2V7 Neptune.

AH, the "QUEEN", BEAUTIFUL!!

Written on 10/22/2021 by Robert Tinsley

These Neptunes were probably SP2Es or SP2Hs

Written on 10/22/2021 by themold

The airworthiness Cert lists it as NX44HQ as of 23 October 2018. Grumman records indicate a build for Bld#099 beginning in 1950 and completion with delivery to the AF in 1951, Which matches AF SerNum 51-025.

Those ARE turbofans! Just a little lower by-pass ratio than you may recognize.

Last of the Stick N Rudder planes.
Great Shot

Written on 10/22/2021 by john cook

@chalet...I only put the N in front because the FA algorithm seems to really dislike BUNOs, often they have inserted the N when I just put in the number. I corrected it. It may be that it only causes problems on shorter BUNOs...haven't figured out the logic yet.

Tightening the shoulder straps before take-off appears to be mandatory....not much head room!!!

Written on 10/22/2021 by Tom Fox

B757 never should have been out of production. Quietly one of Boeing's finest. What a gorgeous airplane. And fast... was great to work with as an en route controller, pretty sure I remember at lower altitudes they could do 330 IAS...maybe even 340 and somewhere around Mach 0.82 at cruise altitude. You are number one in the sequence sir!

I saw them 10/16 in LOveland Colorado, an amazing show

Written on 10/22/2021 by Peter Dundee

I'm embarrassed. I couldn't read what nation's air force was painted on the side and didn't recognize the flag. It's Singapore. I used to train Singaporean C-130 guys at Clark AB, Philippines in the 80s. They also had a detachment of A-4s permanently rotating at Clark, I think I remember they were glossy too! Weird...

I've been to that museum with my grandkids! Didn't get to see an airshow, but they have some beautifully maintained aircraft, all flyable.

Written on 10/22/2021 by Keith Brown

Anyone know how many 707s still airworthy with what appear to be original engines like this rather than turbofans?

Do you have a link that corroborates this serious charge? I couldn't find any matches with a Google image search.

The Goodyear model was known as Goodyear F2G Corsair "Super Corsair"

Written on 10/22/2021 by a mentor

Hopefully, they arent that close to the plane. A trick of the view. As a pilot seeing those I'd be a bit on the nervous side.
