Douglas DC-3 (N737H)
Just over 2 miles above Samsarg Field, Airborne Imaging's Douglas DC-3C (N737H) is at 11,500 and taking pics of Fernley while I'm taking pics of it. This excellent old classic bird, which had originated its flight from KTPH (Tonopah, NV), was over my house (close to Samsarg Field) five times in 75 minutes while it flew over Fernley, Hazen, Fallon, and Pyramid Lake. Each of the first four times it passed over my home, it was at 11,500 (AGL), but on its last pass, as it was departing the area heading back to TPH, it had descended to 10,600. This pic was snapped earlier when it was at 11,500 and despite the 2 miles plus height that meant it was a bit beyond the desirable reach of my Tamron lens, this shot came out sufficiently sharp to make it a "keeper."
