SR 71 Blackbird, U-2, Pics added, 10 images

Discussion in 'Transportation' started by TomP, Aug 19, 2009.

  1. Warner Robins Georgia, Air Museum

    SR 71 Blackbird; Ichi Ban. (one number)

    A Dark and crowed hanger, not a fit resting place for this historic bird. The U2 was there also it is in the upper right corner mounted high in the air, really hard to shoot it, might add some of those later.

    I had to work on these dark images, hand held with sig 30MM and Nikon 12/24.

    U2 shot, 1/5 Sec. just PP this one for scale, it is really a small body plane.

    I too would like to know where this is, it certainly is crowded. Is that a Thunderbird's tail in the upper right?
     
  7. Very cool collection - I would love to take a stroll through there!

    Great stuff! It does look like they could use a few more light bulbs in there, though.
     
  9. LOL:smile:, yea that place is way out of my skill set. i had my little lighting kit, and plenty of hands to hold the slaves. I did not try, just seemed like the scale was too large for even 3 flashes, plus it was an outing with Grand children, did not want to get too wrapped up in the camera.

    I see no reason one could not use a tripod in there, plenty of room and little traffic on a weekday. There are two buildings, and three areas outside covered in aircraft. Oh and best of all, IT IS FREE, or maybe not, tax dollars??:tongue:

    I was going to guess Warner Robins, since you are in central Georgia. But it seems atypical for the Air Force weenies :smile: to have such a poorly lit museum. They usually get the best of everything.
