Non-aviation shot this time; an ominous sunset in heavy thick smoke when the purple air rating for San Bruno, CA was over 500(200+ is extremely unhealthy). Made for a cool sunset though.
Booze works best when asking for a tour. She was a regular guest at TPA during my time there.View attachment 55931

Big lady arrived on a fuel hop from Goose Bay this evening, and heads south later on to pick up whoknowswhat. Before all this COVID nonsense and depending upon how long the Antonov stuck around, the crews would nearly always offer tours if you'd ask nicely. They'll still bring the crowds, and the Progress D-18Ts still sound phenomenal up close, but I don't think anything beats being able to toss a football in an aircraft fuselage and not risk hitting anything on the other end. This airplane is incredible.
