Planes In Pea Soup

Yesterday I was working late at the CAF hangars. I went to stretch my legs out around the ramp and found that a bit of pea soup fog had rolled in. It was eerie with the flashing runway lights, the blue taxiway lights, the orange of the sodium vapor security lights, the dampened sounds, and the fog.

So of course, I grabbed my camera.

I didn’t have a tripod for the long exposures (two and a half to five seconds), but in a pinch I was able to make do with an office chair.

The PBJ had been prepped for her mission today (see below).

The SNJ and C-46.

The other plane to the right of the C-46 is the AAF’s B-25, “Executive Sweet.”

What was our PBJ’s mission for today? We did the flyby over the LA Coliseum before the Rams-Saints NFL game!

For video of the flyover from inside one of the T-34 escort aircraft, see this afternoon’s post on our CAF SoCal Facebook page.
