San Jose has a little park next to the airport which provides a good place to watch the approaching aircraft. It is also situated right next to the taxiway that the corporate jets use to get to the threshold for departure. You get a really good view of them and, as the day progresses, the light is on them nicely. Unfortunately, although not surprisingly, there is a big fence in the way. It is a high fence and there are no spaces to photograph through. The only option is to get very close to the mesh, try and align with the holes as well as you can and then shoot wide open to blur out any wire that does get in the shot. It works surprisingly well.
In this case a couple of Bombardier’s jets showed up. The Lear was nice to see but I do prefer the big corporate jets and the Global Express has been a favorite of mine for a long time. I think it is an elegant jet and this one was painted nicely to enhance the lines. I await the first chance I shall get to see the Global 7000 to see whether it shares the family looks. I should pay my friends in Wichita a trip – to see them of course!
