Had a fun photo shoot on a beautiful Sunday afternoon!
That's a clean belly!
Nice as usual, Jack.
You should have seen the look on his face during the briefing when I told him we would do a breakaway shot! He wasn't so sure it was clean!
Thank you! This one was fun. Army Helicopter pilot and he is good in formation.
Excellent, Jack! As always.
Thank you Stan!
Anyone know why the underside strakes are necessary? Seems like a lot of "stuff" hanging down causing drag (albeit probably immaterial on an Archer).
Another Army helicopter pilot here, Jack, if you ever want to shoot my 310! And yes, my belly is clean
Where are you based?
That bridge shot, perfecto!
The bottom of the cabin of the Cherokee and its progeny (PA-28/32/34/44) is an exo-skeleton. The cabin floor does double-duty as the exterior skin.
Very nice - I like that color scheme a lot - bright and clean but classic.
If you look closely you would see thousands of tiny holes in those ribs. This is where the chem trail nozzles are hidden.
Nice job Jack!
Nice photos as always. Have to admit I cringed at the belly shot ... not because of a possible dirty belly, but looking at all those inspection panels for annual in the wings!
Looks more structural than aerodynamic to me.
eta: Reminder to self, read the thread before replying.
cool, I always wondered why those were there!
That's a pretty airplane and beautiful shots, @Lowflynjack
Yep ... they're all good but that is my favorite. I also admire Jack for his ability to get an airplane belly sparkling clean without lifting finger ...
It's not unusual for an older airplane to be repainted in the scheme of a newer model. But here is a newer (1981) Archer II wearing the paint scheme of the 1968 Cherokee 180D (below). Looks good - classic!
I don't care for the swoopy designs everyone uses these days. My bird has pretty good paint, albeit a little boring, but if i ever paint one one going with a classic design. This is my favorite: (imagine it not faded...)
Never stop posting these, Jack! Nice work as always. Great looking Archer.
That’s not how ***** Galore did it in her fleet of Pipers. She used externally mounted gas cylinders.
The 60s were more "in your face" than today. We have to be stealthy because people are starting to figure things out.
As always Jack, you take some amazing photos!
I love that one of the premier GA photojournalists is right in my back yard. I grew up flying central Texas, and sometimes I can tell you where the river bends and highways are from your gorgeous photos. Terrific job Jack!!
