Odds are very, VERY slim that I'll ever see an A388 at little old KRNO, so this was the next best option for me to snap one without having to travel hundreds of miles. Kick back in the side yard with a hot cup of coffee and watch the screen as FA showed this Emirates coming closer and closer. And then, in the distance, coming toward me from just east of Pyramid Lake, it was really easy to see the contrails. And as it passed overhead at 37,000 feet, all I had to do was sight it in the viewfinder, focus, and click away. Gorgeous.
I'd like to send a big Thank You to FA member C. Collingsworth. He posts lots of shots of a/c passing over his place and his pics gave me the idea to try this. And it worked out wonderfully. Not only did I get this big Bus, I also snapped an F-18 headed west from NAS Fallon and a Qatar A35K. TYVVM for the idea, Chris. (Wave)

This is the kind of atmosphere conditions you need to get a 5-vote shot like this. Chris C. rocks on overhead military pics from his mid-American location.

Hi, Greg, and TY. (Wave)
Rich .... Thanks to you also. And I agree w/your comment about quite a few of Chris's overhead military captures; they do indeed "rock." Unfortunately, the truly fine shots that he certainly should be proud to post are buried amid others that he probably should have simply deleted from the card, so the superb ones don't get the views because some viewers just don't want to wade thru the poor stuff to find a gem. But that's his business. In any event, I appreciate that he gave me the idea to try some overheads. A couple days ago, I caught a KC-10 Extender (call: ABATE21) enroute from SUU to SLC and then up to Montana where the Chinese spy balloon is. I enjoyed getting that capture. And hey, while I'm here, good luck to the Eagles. I'm rooting for them to whomp KC. (Thumbs Up)
