Taken from my backyard when the AWACS from Tinker was in the area for training. Spent many hours watching them train and was able to get more than a few really nice shots of this wonderful bird.
I neglected to say the location, this is on take off from KRME, the old Griffiss AFB, Rome, NY. Now it's called the Oneida County International Airport.

This is too cool!!! I LOVE IT...ABSOLUTELY!!! This should be the COVER of the magazine!
Thank you, overthemoon. Was very lucky to be included in a tour of this aircraft later in the week. Presented the pilot and crew with a matted and framed copy of this image. Pilot contacted me later and asked for another as his commander had the one they took home, hanging in his office. That was a very fine compliment to be sure. Thank you for looking and commenting and keep your fingers crossed for me.
