I was shocked to see this painted of AFD vehicles!

Come on o'reilly don't go getting me in trouble (I do it easily enough on my own).

I'm sure at some point some 'Power that Be' is going to ask why I was allowed to ascend the 100 feet to the top of the Ladder Truck (you know, that one that Amherst College chipped in to buy but UMass changed their minds after installing sprinklers in their High Rise buildings).

Great shots, Larry. Wanna sky dive one day, and get some great shots from the air?

Until later.............

LarryK4 said...

Hell yeah!

I would also love to talk Barnes Air National Guard into allowing me a flight on one of those super cool F-15 fighters.

I would even settle for a ride in an A-10 Warthog (if there is still one around)

O'Reilly said...

I have a friend who used to fly warthog (aka war hoover) for the Navy. At low velocity and low altitude they suck air into the engines at irregulars intervals, whhoop, whhoop.

About the photo, the truth is an absolute defense. If anybody wants to debate the proposition, I'm up for it.

LarryK4 said...

Can't argue/debate with you there o'reilly.

Truth indeed--but let's not get AFD into trouble.

The truck blocking the bike lane in the first photo is the $75.00 ticket.

Great photos Larry! You'd think by now I'd have seen that view for myself but I'm to chicken!

Hey Mary,
Yeah, it got interesting when the platform started to list ever so slightly

That ladder truck is getting a little old...
