Caution: Objects In The Lens Are STILL Harder To Shoot Than You Think.

This theory was proven in a previous post, and we, here at Totally Jacked Up Aircraft Photos, would still not have it any other way.

"Air Asia, #2 for Takeoff Behind Stansted Ops."

Airport Operations exists for more than just managing the airfield, sleeping in the office and harassing airplane photographers. They will also selflessly hurl themselves in front of the camera to “Protect” you from getting “The Shot.”

Déjà Vu. San Francisco Style.

What are the odds of this happening the two distinctly separate times we are visiting SFO? Shot number one was taken in March 2009. Shot number two was taken September 2009. Same plane. Same parking stand. Same airport. Same Totally Jacked Up Aircraft Photo.

Works for us.

Staff Junket To San Francisco.

We are off to the SFO Airliner Collectible Show, so till we return, enjoy some TJUAP’s from the City by The Bay.

Photographer Unknown (and rightfully so)

Looks like jetBlue going for the #1 wire. Must have been a nice trap.

Yes, Our Cell Phone Camera Division Is Alive And Well.

No, these are not “Cash for Clunkers” victims. Peek at this beauty long enough and a U-2 will magically appear.

Like A Child - They Get Manufactured, Delivered, And Then Fly Away.

Yes, aircraft are fascinating, exciting, and in some cases, downright sexy. But there comes a time when you have to remove your finger from the shutter button, put the camera down, and walk away.

Sometimes, you just have to let them go.

ASOS Fables?

Nothing says “Jacked Up Aircraft Photo” like the Automated Surface Observing System (ASOS) in front of an arriving Speedbird 747. Thanks ASOS.

Some people play “Hide the sausage.” We play hide the 757.

A Photo Finish.

By the looks of this shot, it appears that the QF A380 lost by a nose.

Make that a giant, bulbous, ugly nose.
