    Really enjoy these airport shots you do. Those planes look massive! What are they called?

    Just noticed is that an Osprey or a drone?

    I was going to say ... is it bad that my brain went "oh a drone" before I scrolled down, saw the C-130s, was was like "no, stupid, that's an Osprey."

    I think that once the drones get as large as those Osprey's the world will REALLY be in a bad place

    Drones are already as large as an Osprey. :) Fortunately, there are only a few places that have them and can afford the infrastructure to run them. Otherwise I would never take another commercial flight every agin.

    I had the same reaction as Mike when I first saw the image, only when you pointed out it is an Osprey did I look closer - perspective strikes again and I did think it was unusual to see a civilian drone over/close to a military airfield. Great shot though.

    Thanks Ian. Ours is actually a civilian commercial airport with a National Guard base co-located. Those folks fly a lot and provide a lot of valuable service to the area.

    I had the great pleasure to hang out the back of a C-130, photographing the last Buccaneer flight.
