An MV-22B Osprey (168292) assigned to Marine Helicopter Squadron One (HMX-1), the Marine unit that transports the POTUS, waits to start its engines until a C-17 Globemaster (044128) from McGuire (Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst) taxies past on Alpha after having landed on runway 16R at Reno Tahoe International.

I never thought this snap would come out. As can be seen by the shadow on the fuselage of the C-17 by the tail, I was shooting into the sun. I was fairly far away, and the air temperature was in the 90s so the heat on the sun-baked ramp under a clear sky was over 100 with heat waves rolling up. At first, I thought that trying for this click was a huge waste of effort, but the beauty of digital is that if the photo comes out lousy it can simply be deleted, so I adjusted for the conditions as best I could and snapped off a series. And I'm glad I did ... this picture came out quite clear and sharp given the distance and the hot, "almost noon" conditions.

perfect shot Gary!!
Nice photo there Gary. I wish here on F/A you didn't have to click "full" to get the full resolution of the photo. I don't think all the users of the website that browse the photos know you have to click full to view the "real" photo. Again, very nice photo Gary.

Gman - excellent detail on this photo! Even the plane on the tail band "McGuire" shows very well...
