We Say “Amen” To Totally Jacked Up Aircraft Photos.

And so does world renowned soul-saver Benny Hinn. Jesus walked. Benny needs a G-IV.

That’s Jacked Up.

You No Can Park Here!

Our roving staffers will indeed do anything to bring you the choicest Totally Jacked Up Aircraft Photos. This even includes stopping in the middle of the road to blow what was obviously an easy shot.

At Totally Jacked Up Aircraft Photos, we redefine “It’s in the bag.”

One Totally Jacked Up Aircraft Photo Is Worth Two In The Bush.

Or maybe three, or four, shoot, as many as we can get.

The Lonely Windsock.

It receives no love. It has no friends. Yet, it is depended upon by airmen the world over.

And we still could not get it in focus.

The Journey To Totally Jacked Up Aircraft Photos.

It was once said every journey begins with the first step. In our case this first step is to Photo Unit One, Photo Unit Two and Totally Jacked Up Unit One.

Do the ends totally justify the means? Here at Totally Jacked Up Aircraft Photos we think so.

Wow, this is indeed a rare find. Is it a bird? Is it Superman? Flying squirrel, maybe? Roswell has nothing on us with reports of spaceships and dead aliens. We have proof that Tribbles from the original Star Trek television series are alive and well. After the haze of one too many fine ales had cleared, our roving staffer discovered this little gem during download. Good catch, mate.

How To "Construct" a Jacked Up Photo.

When we were kids we loved airplanes and heavy construction equipment. However, add one part DC-3, plus one part Caterpillar grader, and presto! Together they make a Totally Jacked Up Aircraft Photo.

Who knew?

Donations Welcome.

As all can planely see (nice pun, don’t ya’ think?), we need to invoke a serious update of the official Totally Jacked Up Aircraft Photos staff camera. We feel that an update of equipment beyond the measly 2.0 MP unit we now possess would allow us to bring our now five loyal viewers even “finer” Jacked Up Photos, as “the finest” Jacked Up photos would be an oxymoron.

We accept Paypal and United States Postal Service Money orders.

Who Put That There?

Nothing will Jack Up your photos faster than a solid object. In this case it is a building. And a rather nice building at that.

Yes, We Do Requests.

At the request of the illustrious DAC Man, we present the ATA DC-10 in Northwest livery. We also present a couple of Totally Jacked Up Photos of the ATA DC-10 in Northwest livery.

Hey, we aim to please.

It Was The Best Of Shots, It Was The Worst Of Shots.

In the loose brotherhood of aviation photographers there is always competition. There are handshakes and smiles before, and beers and debauchery after, but during the event to be shot – Everyone is for themselves. This works for us because it produces a plethora of Jacked Up Aircraft Photos.
