Shooting Star á lá HDR

29 April 2021

27º 13′ 11″ N / 81º 52′ 24″ W

Arcadia FL

Please see the previous post for an explanation of HDR and why it is useful when taking photographs on a bright, clear Florida day (a situation usually to be avoided). Long time blog readers have seen this particular T-33 Shooting Star before. Though, after Hurricane Charley, the canopy was lost. I wondered if it had found its way to the nearby pond?

    A T-33 once flown by Gus Grissom is on a pedestal at the Johnson City Radio Controllers flying field. You can see it in this picture . Here is a gallery of more photos.

      That’s a historical T-33 and I’d like to see it. It looks like a great set up using Google Maps satellite imagery 🙂
      Please try reposting the link if you can?

      Thanks Chuck. It’s too cool for school that they have a Gus Grissom flown T-33 :@
