A rainstorm moved across Ridgecrest, CA tonight and I grabbed my camera just in time for the sunset and a surprise rainbow!
This beauty landed in the backyard and hung out for a while, watching the smaller birds at the feeder.
OMG OMG OMG!! I've lived here 4 years and no one...NO ONE... told me I was 1.5hrs away from an SR-71?! After viewing it at the airfield in Palmdale, CA, we went into the gift shop, only to find that ONE OF THE PILOTS works there! I asked if I could get a photo of him and he said, "would you like to sit in my ejection seat?" UM...YEAH!! "Would you like to wear a helmet?" UM...YEAH!!!! So, here's me and Bill Flanagan!
There are 2 places in Lancaster, one has the SR-71s and the other has a whole bunch of other planes. Hover over the image to see the type of plane. No, the first 2 are NOT the same designation! ;)
