Artist's Description

AFTER A LEASURELY CRUZE IN HIS P-51 MUSTANG, THIS PILOT DOES A NICE “TWO POINT LANDING”, AT THE NUT TREE AIRPORT IN VACAVILLE CALIFORNIA. IT MUST BE NICE TO HAVE TOYS LIKE THAT. I TOOK THIS SHOT WHEN I WAS IN BLACK AND WHITE PHOTO LAB CLASS, AT THE SOLANO COMMUNITY COLLEGE, WAY BACK IN 1984. I USED MY CANON EOS 620 AND MY CANON 100-300 TELEPHOTO MACRO AF LENS TO GET THIS SHOT. I WAS USING KODAK 64ASA BLACK AND WHITE FILM. MY INSTRUCTOR DIDN’T LIKE THE FACT THAT I USED MY OWN HOME LAB IN ORDER TO DEVELOPE MY SHOTS. THE CHEMICAL TRAYS AT SCHOOL WERE JUST TOO DIRTY FOR MY LIKING AND I DECIDED THEN THAT I WASN’T GOING TO USE THEIR LAB, SO I SET ONE UP IN MY GARAGE, WHERE I ONLY HAD TO FIGHT THE RISING SUN AND THE CONTAMINATION FROM MY NEXT DOOR NEIGHBORS COTTON WOOD TREE. MY INSTRUCTOR, MR. ZEEK, DIDN’T LIKE THE FACT THAT I WAS USING RESIN PAPERS, BUT I DIDN’T LIKE THE WAY MY PHOTOS CURLED UP WHEN I USED REGULAR FIBER PAPERS. HE TOLD ME, AS LONG AS HE DIDN’T HAVE TO TOUCH IT, IT WAS OK IF I USED RESIN PAPERS. OF ALL THE MILITARY ISSUE AIRCRAFT, THE P-51 MUSTANG IS MY ALL TIME FAVORITE. NEXT IN LINE COMES THE F-86 SABRE. BOTH AIRCRAFT WERE BUILT BY THE “NORTH AMERICAN” COMPANY.
