    I stole an hour at the airport today to test the 80-400lens. It was frosty but sunny.

    Based upon the title, I was expecting some type of lawn decorations. :) But, these are sweet indeed.

    Great shots...I definitely like #2, this bird has been around! I like the fact that you captured her age and detail. I also like the last one....it makes me sort of sad to see her facing the sun. Looks as if she's had a good run....only to be retired and parted out.

    Thanks everyone, surprisingly I’m still not happy with the lens, there is something funky going on in some of the photos. I will have to post an example later.

    The last aircraft is a Lockheed Constellation and spent it’s whole like in Canada. It was Trans Canada Airline’s first aircraft that could fly non-stop across the Atlantic. For the past 15 years or so it has been in Toronto as a restaurant but closed about 10 years ago. It sadly went on auction and the person who bought it has made a deal that will send it to Seattle’s Museum of Flight. Several Canadian museums have tried to acquire it in the past but with no luck. Right now there is a big fight on to keep it in Canada as a Canadian artefact. I hope we can get it to stay in Canada but if not the Seattle museum I know will take good care of it and is a worthy location. This is the only one in Canada so it will be gone forever.

    No, I'm in it big time but in winter it gets a little slow for my aviation stuff. Love your shots, I really appreciate the posts.
