Last Saturday I had the opportunity to photograph something a little different than the usual engagement, wedding and senior images you see on this blog. The Airline History Museum at the Kansas City Downtown airport recently acquired a Lockheed L1011 for static display and touring at the museum. This aircraft was scheduled to arrive Saturday afternoon after a bunch of planning and coordination to even get the plane in the air. The arrival and landing would signify the last time this plane would ever fly. Being a pilot and obviously being airplane-obsessed, I was there to watch the fanfare, along with my husband Jim. Well, I got to do something he didn’t – which was tag along in SkyTracker 41, the local NBC affiliate’s news helicopter while they shot video of the arrival. I got a unique perspective that no other photographer on the field got of the airplane’s arrival – which was an air-to-air perspective. Following are some of my shots!
