    Dallas Area-3/2015: Raining Cats and Dogs

    Hello guys.

    After 3 months without touching my camera, I finally felt compelled to pick it up for a couple of unique movements that occurred during the later part of my Spring Break. Sadly mother nature had been a little too inspired by recent cinema, and treated me to a multitude of shades of grey, with no sun to be had. Not the best way to ease back into things, but I did wind up at Adison airport for the first time, which was interesting.

    Day one was at NAS JRB Fort Worth

    Local C-40 as some exposure practice for what was not too far behind it...

    Somehow the clouds got even worse (if possible) for our local CAG Hornet

    And the main course for the day, the Lockheed Martin CATB(ird)

    A quick visit to Alliance netted this nice looking 429, which I hadn't seen before

    A double-header at KADS the next day.

    Round one was this nice Sabreliner, which I reckon have to be getting rare these days.

    And this DC-9-15 from Ameristar

    We then dropped into Cavanaugh's museum only to find their P-51 doing the first engine runs of a newly installed Merlin, having been in maintenance since 2013. What a gloriously loud surprise.

    Great catch on the CATB and sorry about the poor WX. It always gets in the way seemingly!
