I don't think I have ever shared this uncropped original photograph before. Low resolution but still effective. I like how the tail curls around the girder.

Voodoo Chile - Fallbrook

Fallbrook's next door neighbor, Camp Pendleton is on fire again, really close by. Scene over the roof across the street, the sun turned a fiery red... Let's hope they put it out soon, without any losses. When they are bombing they often time have to let the fires burn so as not to trigger unexploded ordinance, don't know what started this one. Somebody said a helicopter went down.

Some huge DC-10 size tankers flew over. Never seen one in town before. Came kind of close to a smaller plane. I never got the right shot tonight but almost.
