April 27, 2012. I arrived at 6:30 AM to Liberty State Park in NJ, directly behind the Statue of Liberty. The NASA Space Shuttle Enterprise would be flying over the Statue and New York City. I wanted to be early. Boy, was I. Slowly others started to trickle in, the crowd grew and the News people showed up. I had a very friendly bunch of folks around me and we talked, and we waited. The weather was breezy and chilly, and we waited. We were very excited.
Finally,at the appointed time, directly over the Verrazano Bridge there she was. Flying in our direction. A beauty in the sky.
In Rhinebeck, NY antique biplanes are flown in aerial shows and provide rides for (paying) passengers.
On assignment, coming in for a plane landing.
An optical illusion.
It appears as if the sun is giving birth to the jet.
Photograph was made as sunset was approaching.
