An excellent catch of a MITO launch, Ed. I saw a twelve-bird Alert Force MITO launch (4 52s and 8 135s) at Loring in the 80s (I've got some old slides from that day) but I've never seen an eight-ship Herc launch. There was a seven-ship launch here at RNO just over a month ago and I snapped a three-ship Herc launch two weeks ago but that one occurred around noon and I shot it from the end of the runway as they came headon toward me so the pics came out badly "heat stroked" (intense heat waves between the Hercs and me) which is why I didn't post one. Congrats on this unique snap and TYVVM for sharing it. * * * * *
Speaking of giant freight trains, this one is extra large.

Awesome shot of the guys from Youngstown. I was lucky to be able to photograph them during Patriot Express years ago.

Yak freighters for adventure!
I grew up in Warren back in the late '50s and early '60s and remember the old "Flying Boxcars" being based there. Our family used to visit the airport observation deck regularly for a summer evening's outing. It is nice to see this photo and restore some old memories.

Thank you all for your comments. Just started uploading to this site but I have many more (new & old) shots from YNG, CLE, and around the globe to post in the near future. Stay tuned.

Great Shot Ed and thank's for posting. I flew as a C-130 Loadmaster in the Air Force, and flew in many multi-ship ship formations. You don't want to be in the back of the pack!
