Madras Dawn Patrol

@ Madras Municipal Airport, Oregon

August 2015

A dawn patrol of a very different sort begins to taxi towards the runway for an early morning Madras Air-to-Air Experience photo session.  The Mitsubishi A6M3 Reisen (Zero) comes from the Southern California Wing of the Commemorative Air Force.  The Nakajima Ki-43 Hayabusa “Oscar” (center) and the Grumman F4F Wildcat (right) are part of the impressive Erickson Aircraft Collection located here at Madras Municipal Airport.  Nikon D7100 w/18-200mm, processing with Aperture and Aurora HDR.

  2. The Oscar and Wildcat are at the Erickson Aircraft Collection museum at the airport in Madras, OR. Have to go to SoCal to see the Zero.
