... and there are bold pilots. But there are no old bold pilots.

    Awesome and very confusing. I can't tell what's solid, what's reflection or what's shadow. Is it a sculpture? A Photoshop creation? Whatever it is, it's pretty cool. :+1:

    Thanks, Richard and Rags. That is an actual scene in Nelson, NV. It's what's left of a real plane, you could call it a sculpture now I guess. Processing might be a bit over the top.

    Nelson is kind of a junkyard of various antique transportation curiosities, a bit of a photographer's dream. You're not allowed out there at night, although I'm pretty sure the proprietors could be bribed.

    I wonder what kind of parties this vehicle facilitated in it's day.

    Very cool! That first one looks like the wings and aft fuselage of a Grumman E-2 Hawkeye.

    I agree, really great finds, and photos. The last one looks like it could have been the inspiration for "todays" expidition vehicles!

    I don't know where I'm going, but I'm going anyway.
