Photographer’s Notes
Shot at Aviation Nation, Nellis AFB, Las Vegas, Nevada. It is a vintage F-86F Super Sabre. I’ve often wondered how to open the canapy of a modern jet fighter so I was looking at many different models and each has a diminutive button to press to gain access. No required keys. Guess it would be bad to lose the keys if you're being scrambled to defend the free world. "Sorry Captain, I left the keys in my other pants ..." would not look good on a resume.

I do not have high hopes for this image's score - but don't want to score a zero in WPL - and I like entering one-of-a-kind images. I'm pretty sure we won't see anything like this in the challenge.

More airshow photos in coming challenges!

Not the sort of ordinary details that most people see everyday, but I like it. With the exception of the motif, the details are ordinary. Some panels look a little beat up which gives the picture an honesty. I like.
