Ellington Field, Tx 29.6.17 - WB-57F

Post by TAFFEVANS » Sat Jul 01, 2017 12:13 pm

A short morning visit - very quiet with the main runway R17R still closed following the F-16 incident last week. Just as I arrived though the WB-57F N926NA 'Nasa926' launched for an hour's worth of circuit/radar bashing. Firstly on R04 with sunshine followed by R22 which is a bit of a pig for photography, not very inconspicuous standing on the central reservation of a 2 lane road!

Great catch! Wonderful to see a Canberra-type still doing it's duty!

Superb shots of the WB57F, really nice indeed. Thanks for sharing with us.

Good to see a classic design still working well.
