Nice shot, looks like she ready to take off to the sky. Toured that plane once back in 1982, it was something to see.

That is a very impressive capture of a very special aircraft.

In it's own way, it reminds me of the Jackson Browne album cover showing the Statue of Liberty surrounded by scaffolding.

It is, indeed, the famous Spruce Goose on permanent display at the Evergreen Aviation Museum in McMinnville, Oregon.

Another notable airplane to see there is Boeing 747 mounted on top of a building that houses a water park of all things.

Great image and theme. Out of curiosity is it a crop of a wide angle shot or a stitch or ??

Thanks everyone for the nice words.

I was up that way in September and stopped by. They are actually evaluating this shot to sell in the gift shop. I will believe it when a check clears the bank.

Ramcewan, it is a single wide angle HDR (5 or 7 exposures) shot cropped. This is where the Nikon showed it's stuff. It was shot at close to 17mm. I would like to go back and do a stitch job on this one. Maybe next summer.

Here is another from inside. It is a stitched pano of four shots (I believe shot portrait orientation). I tried to do this as an HDR but I would wind up with the same people in multiple places and a bunch of ghosts!
