August 2014

Taken during the inaugural Pike’s Peak Regional Airshow, this beautiful Tigercat sits ready to fly during the show.  Introduced in 1944, Tigercats served for ten years before being retired.  Starting in the 1960’s, Tigercats were used as water bombers to fight forest fires.   Nikon D300 w/18-200mm, processing with Photomatix Pro and Aperture.
