Here is a blue antique airplane with a blue helicopter hovering over it. This was shot at the Evergreen Aviation Museum in McMinnville, Oregon. This is the home of the Howard Hughes' Spruce Goose.

Nikon D100, Sigma 28-80mm f2.8 lens.

That old plane must have spent a lot of time in the "Wild Blue Yonder". That's one massive engine.

A situation where you could have used a wider angle lens to capture the whole plane, since you were probably in tight quarters.

It is difficult to shoot in this museum because of the large number of aircraft on display. I had several lenses with me. I'm not sure why I chose this one.

The deep blue color really stands out. as Walter indicated, very tight quarters. to execute a shot that gets all of the plane. Curios how much distortion a wide angle lens would invoke.

Wonder if they ever had a few of these for aerial shows and did they call them "The Blue ..... (wont go there)
