Spotted this guy yesterday in the Red Rock Canyon State Park.

Twin Otter

After flying, I couldn't resist the urge to stroll around the flight line and take some photographs.

Here is a 1980 Dehavilland DHC-6-300.

Now that I'm thinking about it. I wonder why the pilot decided to park the aircraft with the flaps down. Seems like he's asking for trouble.

Desert Tortoise II

I've lived in the desert for nearly twenty years. I think in all that time, I've seen one or maybe two desert tortoises in the wild.

Today, I saw three of them. They seem to like the weeds that grow along the side of the road.

After some suggestions at the Digital Photography School forum I went back for another try at this image.

Sikorsky UH-60 Blackhawk

I spent a few hours today at the Inyokern airport. I shot this while I waiting to go fly in a Cessna 172.
