Default Aerial Boundaries (U-2 Dragon Lady)

While landing at Honolulu Airport (they share runways with Hickam AFB) after a day trip to Kauai , I saw this plane on the tarmac. Went to the parking deck and took a few shots of him taking off into the afternoon sun. Strange activity on Kauai whenever they have a missile intercept test with funny looking ships off Barking Sands where testing is done. Not a very common sight in Honolulu.

Nice shot! I recall looking at Google Maps sometime ago and they had one coming in to land at an AFB someplace.

Google Maps for Beale AFB, you can see some on the ground.

Nice shot. The only flaw I see is some white fringing around the edge of the plane caused by jpg compression.

With the flaws that this site causes to our uploads I hardly think that counts.
