Sundown

Sunday — December 27 — 3 PM

I came in on my day off, Cargo’s-Last-Stand Eve. This, the last freighter was scheduled to leave the following morning. This was my last chance to take some photos of the group and of this airplane before it would be turned into scrap aluminum. Most of the other freighters are sitting in the desert.

I asked the afternoon shift crew if they would also like to be photographed in the engine. Caesar was the only volunteer.

With the plane facing directly south, and just a few days after winter solstice (our shortest day, the sun setting to the SW), the the lighting was perfect. We took 8 shots in less than 5 minutes. What an opportunity!
