Remarks: Seen taking off for the flyby that would include a B-1, a B-52, a C-130, a KC-135, a C-17, 2 F-16s, a T-28, a F-22...WOW. This is strangely my very first BUFF launch shot. What a day. This marks my 500th shot for JP's DB. What a great ride it has been so far!!
Remarks: Now on static display at the Century Circle area just outside the west gate of the base, this very first YC-15, predecessor to the C-17, sits awash in the glow of a glorious sunrise here in the cold, cold desert.
