Photographer's Note

I wanted to show 1 more photo of this grounded US Army Airplane. If you have not seen my previous post, then I should tell you that this Army plane deliberately crash landed on a black sand beach because the pilot believed he was out of fuel.

This occurred back in 1972, 40+ years ago and the plane still sits in its original position like the body of a lobster on a table! But its very hard to locate as it blends in with the surrounding lunar moon landscape.

I wanted to show a more detailed view of the nose, and the way the shell of the plane has been defaced over the decades. I also really liked how the blackness of the windows appeared in this shot, whereas in my previous post the light passed right on through. So its nice to have a complete opposite contrast.

Hope you like it
Cheers
Craig
