When Airplanes Go Bad.

When we are bad we go to jail. So do airplanes that misbehave, which makes for a “good” Totally Jacked Up Aircraft Photo.

To Post Or Not To Post - That Was The Question.

Our staff actually kicked this one around for awhile, as we were not quite sure if this was a true Totally Jacked Up Aircraft Photo or a work of art. Nice job by our European Correspondent.

A Tree-Hugger’s Paradise.

Apparently the smog around Los Angeles has yet to kill off all living things, as graphically shown by theses pesky examples of nature’s flora.

And Manchester Airport (MAN) thought they had the market cornered by wild trees (sorry, Nik).

Support Your Local Airport Operations Agent.

They are not all anti-aviation, grumpy goons that hate aircraft spotters and photographers. Some of them encourage these sports (like our Founder, shown here).

The Right Tool For The Job.

It has been said to do the job right you must first have the right tools, and this definitely includes the vehicles for the Baghdad International Airport Operations team. This armored, black beauty is just the thing for runway crater inspections, protection from double-secret IED’s, and runs to the local Food King outside the Green Zone.

Gremlins Part Two.

Caught in the act by the staff on crack, Umm, make that our crack staff, these pesky creatures are most curious about what makes an aircraft tick.

Totally Jacked Up Aircraft Photos Most Excellent Adventure.

Parking in a taxiway is never recommended. Unless, of course, it is to get ya’self some Totally Jacked Up Aircraft Photos.

We give this one three thumbs up.

Life in The Post 9/11 World.

In a world of tight security for wheel-chaired grandma’s and the smelly TSA shoe test, we, the staff of Totally Jacked Up Aircraft Photos, still go the distance to get our rabid viewer base the best Jacked Up Photos the FAA will allow (or did they?).

Our Mad Drive For Totally Jacked Up Aircraft Photos.

And when we say drive, we most certainly mean it. During one of many meandering staff tours on the aerodrome, our quick and caffeinated photojock felt the urge to “fire one off,” as our retro Cheech & Chong van rumbled along the flight line. Too bad shocks are not standard equipment on aircraft maintenance vehicles.

While in the midst of a United States Presidential election season, we here at Totally Jacked Up Aircraft Photos decided to expand our own political clout via a surgical strike by video crew. Good idea? You bet. Parking between runway and taxiway, thus incurring the wrath of Airport Operations (the knucklehead in the white shirt and hat), not a good idea. The frosting on the proverbial cake? Nail the FAA Lear 60 while out screwing around on said airport, being harassed by Airport Ops.

Thank the Maker our unpaid, abused, coffee-fetching intern Stud Monkey was there to get a Jacked Up Photo of it all for posterity’s sake.

Nah, just our staff intern Stud Monkey poking his head through the emergency escape hatch on ATA’s N164AT after a troop movement flight from HNL.

A beautiful aircraft the Lockheed L-1011. A Totally Jacked Up Photo, though.

Yo Quiero Payments.

When you are sick, you get to meet your doctor. When you are in trouble, you get to meet your lawyer. When you don’t make your 737-700 lease payments, well, you get to meet the Repo Man. This Boeing has been in airplane jail for well over a year now.
