The road directly at the bottom of the pics is U.S. 60, AKA the California Highway. It was how you got to Los Angeles back in the old days. At the top of the pics, you can see another highway crossing the pic. That is highway 93, which takes you to Vegas in about 230 miles.

To the right of the runway are hangars for local aircraft. To the left are a few businesses; one being Bearcat Mfg. (http://www.bearcatmfg.com/). When you see a road being paved, it's likely that oil tanker trucks which spray the oil down before the tar goes down were made by Bearcat. I have a few friends who work there, including one dude who can weld beer cans together. He's pretty good at welding.

It was fucking cold up there, and I was shooting with the window open some of the time. Goddamm, I hate the cold!

Beautifull spot, what I love to see after along day. Cold ?? what do you call cold ??

After dinner speech about aircraft by a retired British ATC in 1981. Dated, but hilarious.

It is being relocated a bit down the taxiway, past the hangars. New, larger tanks for Av and JetA will be part of the relo. The old pumps and island are going to be removed. This should be completed some time in 2013.

Yes, I am a pussy when it comes to cold. It was probably in the 30s up there. This morning when I got in the car to come to work it was 27 degrees. I hate it when that happens.

Thank you - it took me all day to listen to it in parts, but it was well worth it.

Holy cow, I had to take a picture of this morning's sunrise! I just wish I would have had more than a crappy cell phone camera, it doesn't do any justice to the intensity and clarity of the colors.

How about this shot? Better than the others?



One of these will be used by the town for their website.

Dude, I don't know what your angle is, but that's clearly photoshopped.

I can tell by the pixels, and I've seen a few 'shops in my day.

What tipped me off was I went to google maps and it doesn't look anything like that.

I'm busted.

And we know how awesome the quality is of the Google Maps shots.

I'm with you. I need to dig around and find a pic I took of a Lear 24 on a low approach to the Maize KS airport (grass) from the centerline just before I ducked...at a QB meeting. As close as I ever came to shitting myself...
