As often happens, I like this one better. I sent it to the man who took the original photo.

A good view of Rainier. Sometimes the smoke from fires reduces the views to naught.

Very cool!

Thank you, Luke. The image actually came from an aircraft manufacturer's ad in Aviation Week although the similarity is certainly there. Lt Col Fitzgibbon was very much like the Robert Duvall character in Apocalypse Now but very smart and witty. He was also a bit of a smart ass so we got along well. For the detail lovers: the drone is in actual colors and markings, his initials are on the belt buckle, his rank is on the hat, and the ribbon around his neck is in the colors of the Meritorious Service Medal he wrote for me. The painting is called The Only Real Deterrent in the Tactical Air Command and he still has it.

Looks like Chill Wills riding the nuke down in that movie. Great work, you are one talented guy!

Leave the sun where it is and rotate 180 deg, that could be Afghanistan.

I spent the first three months of 1975 stationed at Osan AB, Korea, and it was miserably cold and dreary. And ugly. The only green was the camo on the NCO club. All the trees were bare and small because the big trees had been used for fuel during the war 20 some years earlier. The food on base was horrible. The club served free bloody Marys and screwdrivers for sick call on Sunday mornings using canned juice. Zappa's song about yellow snow was popular. The painting is just meant to suggest cold and the low position of the Sun indicates Winter.

Thanks! The colors here are Cerulean Blue, Permanent Sap Green, and Titanium White. Add gray to them and you have camouflage colors. Add a little brown to the light green to get olive drab.

Full consent, I'm fascinated, I admire all the work of the Lord David Duckett are extremely interesting.

Yes, it is. They are here every spring, it seems.

Is that the Collings Foundation group? I've seen them at Mercer AP in Trenton NJ a couple of times. Was going to go up in their B17 one time but the weather did not cooperate that day. At least got to scramble through the bombers (B24, B17, and B25) and took loads of pics. Lot o' fun.

Yep. The wild, wild, west!:-)
