Remarks: 103 Airlift Wing C-21 Sitting on the ANG ramp at Bradley during the 2009 Space and Aviation Day, a benefit for Paul Newman's Hole in the Wall Gang Camp. The turnout was meager, but at least we could see the CTANG's "new" aircraft. They are scheduled to transition to the C-27J in the next few years. Thanks to the CT Air National Guard for making this shot possible.
Remarks: The best diversion of the day - heck, the best diversion of the year here at BDL! As if 12 hours from Doha to the United States weren't enough time in this 777, the passengers got an extra couple of hours to enjoy the plane standing still on the ground here in Windsor Locks. In this image Qatari 83 Heavy is finally underway from Runway 6 for the quick trip over to JFK; the flight diverted to Bradley on account of severe storm activity down in New York.
Remarks: Bradley Space & Aviation Day 2009. Shot of the instrument panel of this interesting and quite narrow craft (note the windows / doors on either side of the cockpit). I love the "cargo hook release" button on the control stick! Many thanks to the pilot for the cockpit access.
Remarks: Only the cockpit of N714PA (Clipper Golden Eagle) has been preserved. Still, great to see an all analog cockpit! Note that the instruments of engine number 1 look different than the rest. Thanks to Dan for lending me his diffuser.
