Your blogmeister trekked up to the Falls to see a band recently, and while we were waiting for the openers to take the stage, a large-ish 'airliner' wheeled right over the outdoor concert venue, and fairly low, too. This was no surprise, as said venue was the proverbial stone's throw from the Niagara Falls airport. And though your blogmeister was in bird-watching mode, it was a very different, infinitely more-interesting kinda bird that had caught his eye at that particular moment. Though he is as big a nut for things with wings as anyone, your blogmeister readily admits that cheesecake will win out every time. So, upon half-glancing up at the 'airliner', his attention was not significantly diverted from a particularly well-fitting pair of home-ripped daisy-dukes.
Anyhoo, some while later, this 'airliner', which kinda looked like a 737, came by again.
Okay, someone's shootin' touch and gos. Not something that you usually see airliners doing.
Soooo, the camera came outta the bag, was turned skyward during the next pass, and its wielder was rewarded with a glimpse of the word 'NAVY'.
Oooooohhhhh. That ain't no 737. It's a P-8A Poseidon.
It ain't a great image, because though the forecast called for no precip, the overcast skies seemed to threaten otherwise, and Sol was getting closer to the horizon.
So, to use a technical term, the lighting sucked.
But your blogmeister is not one to be put off by crap illumination when there's something worth snapping away at. And this was the first P-8 he'd seen with his own eyes, so here 'ya be. A crapola snap of a P-8A from VP-30, the FRS RON for the type...
Fade to Black...
