TIRE SMOKE AND BELLY TANK ART - ONLY AT OLF COUPEVILLE

Very happy to have caught the very moment of touch like this. Hope you fav.

 

To see more of my OLF pictures, go here. I also have some up at Fine Art America.

 

To help explain why OLF Coupeville by quoting the NAS Whidbey Island fact sheet I contributed photos to, “In order to properly prepare crews for the dynamic nature of shipboard flying, it is imperative to replicate carrier landing experience as much as possible. This includes flying at appropriate altitudes and speeds as well as having practice fields at or near sea level. CVWP aircraft perform FCLPs at both Ault Field and OLF Coupeville. OLF Coupeville is ideal for this training practice due to its remote location and low ambient lighting. It more closely replicates true landings aboard an aircraft carrier. ... OLF Coupeville is a critical national security asset that provides essential training for Navy pilots based at NAS Whidbey Island to conduct safe and effective aircraft carrier flight operations around the world.”
