Bill the 3rd shot seems compressed horizontally. Or maybe the peaks are just that sheer.
Love the hangar shot gives great perspective.

I've been the Evergreen Aviation Museum several times but I can't figure out how you got this angle on the second shot, above. Have they installed an elevated platform for photos?

When was this taken. Since the last time I was there, that stacked a 747 on top of a new building and made a water park out of it! Apparently they have a water slide that starts inside the 747 and goes down to a pool below.

The third shot above looks a bit like the Grand Teton range in western Wyoming.

Cal, They have installed an exibition on firearms on a raised area. The photo was taken from that raised area. The 747 was in place but seemed to be still under construction when I was there.

Selvin, It may be due to the fact that you are actually looking up a valley. The peaks on left and right are actually quite a bit shorter and closer to the camera than the reddish ones in the center of the photo... if you do not recognize the place it is the highest point in the lower 48 states.... Mt. Whitney. Early morning and very cold!

The top photo is on the deck of th USS Hornet.. this small aircraft carrier was the recovery vessel for the first men that landed on the moon. The quarantine trailer is still on board down below the deck.

Gotcha... now the perspective makes sense. Thanks

Where was the picture of Whitney taken from? That's a hike I've always wanted to do but my backpacking days are over. On the other hand, if the vantage point you were at isn't too difficult to get to, there's always hope I can actually see the mountain, perhaps?
