Photo of the Day: Artistic Husky

Wednesday, August 1st, 2012

AirVenture 2012 is in the books, but we couldn’t resist the opportunity to post one more photo from this year’s show. Al Marsh shot the AOPA 2012 Tougher than a Tornado Sweepstakes Husky using his iPhone and an app called Pro HDR. Then he played with the image in Adobe Lightroom to create the illustrator effect.

It’s not just the warbirds or the classic and antique aircraft we love to scope out at EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. It’s the cutting-edge, unusual designs you aren’t likely to see in person anywhere else. Burt Rutan’s Model 202 Boomerang, photographed by Al Marsh, is a twin-engine five-place aircraft with an asymmetrical shape. Rutan unveiled it in 1996.—Jill W. Tallman

Photo of the Day: Exotic AirVenture

Wednesday, July 25th, 2012

 

One of the more entertaining aspects of AirVenture is that you can always find exotic airplanes that don’t normally turn up on your home airport’s ramp. This BushCat by Skyreach, shot by Al Marsh, is flown in Africa to monitor wildlife. We dig the zebra paint scheme. What do you think?—Jill W. Tallman

With the World’s Great Airshow going on this week, we thought we’d focus our Photo of the Day on images found at this year’s EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wis. This shot captures some of the Piper Cubs lined up after a mass arrival on July 22. The J-3 Cub turns 75 this year.—Jill W. Tallman
