RENEGADE BREAKS IN

Artist's Description

AS A FLIGHT OF T-34’S RETURN FROM THEIR PRACTICE MISSION, A NORTH AMERICAN P-51 “RENEGADE BREAKS IN” AND STARTS A HOSTILE PURSUITE. THE T-34’S ARE UNARMED SINCE THEY WERE ON A PRACTICE FLIGHT AND THE RENEGADE IS HUNGRY FOR A KILL. AS THE P-51 COMES AROUND THE THREE T-34’S TRY TO BREAK AND RUN WHILE THEY ARE STILL IN ONE PIECE. THEY KNOW THAT IF THE MUSTANG GETS ON THEIR TALES, IT’S CURTAINS FOR ALL THREE OF THEM. THIS PHOTO STARTED AS A COPIED IMAGE FROM THE FLIGHT SIMULATOR X PROGRAM THAT I SAVED INTO MY AIRCRAFT FILE. THEN I TOOK THAT IMAGE AND STRAIGHTENED THE HORIZON WITH A SLIGHT CROP, THEN I CUT AND PASTED ONE T-34 IMAGE FROM A PHOTO I TOOK YEARS AGO AT THE NUT TREE AIR EXPO IN VACAVILLE, CALIFORNIA. BY CHANGING THE ANGLES AND SIZES A LITTLE BIT, I WAS ABLE TO MAKE IT LOOK LIKE THERE ARE THREE T-34’S INSTEAD OF JUST ONE, WHEN IN REALITY, THERE ISN’T EVEN A P-51 THERE. IT TOO WAS A COMPUTER GENERATED IMAGE. EVEN THE LANDSCAPE IS COMPUTER GENERATED BY FLIGHT SIMULATOR X. IT IS ACTUALLY SUPPOSED TO BE LAKE BERRYESSA. IT IS ONLY 20 MILES FROM MY HOUSE AND IT ACTUALLY EXSISTS. I WAS ABLE TO PROGRAM TRAVIS AFB AS MY TAKE OFF POINT, SO THE COMPUTER GENERATED THE AREA AROUND TRAVIS. IT IS FUN FLYING AROUND A COMPUTER AND RECOGNIZING LANDMARKS THAT I GREW UP AROUND. HECK, I EVEN FLEW OVER MY FISHING HOLE ON MONTEZUMA SLOUGH AND THEN I FLEW UNDER THE GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE AND THE RIO VISTA BRIDGE ON THE SACRAMENTO RIVER.
