Breaking News - Cessna 172 Down Near The Totally Jacked Up Aircraft Photos Offices.

Approximately 2:40 PM PST, a Cessna 172 (N6922A) went down in the mountains of Glendora, CA (home of the Totally Jacked Up Aircraft Photos offices), one mile north of Sierra Madre Avenue, three miles east of Highway 39. Preliminary news reports were two souls on board, with injuries to both. Photo was taken with our anemic 250mm lens, as a County of Los Angeles Bell 412 was hauling up the last victim.

And we thought nothing ever happens around here.

Shot location: Approximately three miles south of the accident site on the T.J.U.A.P. balcony. Thanks to the California Highway Patrol for phoning in the news tip to our office.

Maybe We Could Photoshop Him Out.

When your friends mess up your shot, sometimes the proper way to deal with them is in post-production editing.

What Does A Lightning Strike Really Look Like?

Usually they blow the static wick off as well, but not in the case of this hapless 757-300.
