airplane graveyard. mojave, ca. 1997.

retired ex-northwest airlines boeing 747 in the process of being scrapped. shot in 1997. nikon n90s + sigma 24-70mm f/2.8, fuji velvia RVP 50.

 

(re)scans from the archives. bit by bit, i've started rescanning all of my old airplane graveyard photos and re-editing them using current software, which is much more versatile than when i originally posted these shots six years ago.

 

i've started replacing the shots that i had originally uploaded way-back-when and will start adding photos that were never posted before.....like this one.

 

and as a brief recap, all of these photos were taken in 1997-1999, when access at mojave airport was still possible. in the present post 9/11 security world we live in, access is not possible at all and photography is prohibited on airport property. please don't ask me how to get access - i can't help.

 

as always, thanks again to everyone that has favorited and commented on my airplane graveyard shots in the past.
