While visiting Coronado I got a chance to watch some of the Naval Aviators in action at the North Island NAS. The air base takes up a large portion of the north end of Coronado and it’s not uncommon to see jets, helicopters, Hawkeyes, and all manor of aircraft taking off and landing throughout the day. This was especially cool for me to see since my Father-in-Law is a retired Naval Aviator who spent part of his career at this base.
Here’s a few images that I captured while watching from the edge of the runway. Click on them for a larger view.
That’s it for me this weekend. I caught a wicked cold, which pretty much kept me in bed last evening. I don’t know if I am going to be able to go shoot today because I will probably be on the phone trying to change my flight reservations. I was supposed to get back Saturday but due to the 24″ of snow expected between now and then, that just isn’t going to happen. Of course there are worse places to be stuck but the weather isn’t supposed to be all that great here as well.
Have a great weekend!
