Fantastic picture, Jake. Phoenix is my hometown and I always love the unique copper color of the ATC Tower. As others have noted, the 747 will always been Queen of the Skies. And PHX will ALWAYS be Sky Harbor International.

That is our very own "Maid in the Shade" B25 from the Commemorative Airforce's Airbase Arizona! Go to for more. It served in WWII out of Corsica and flew several combat missions. We take her around the country throughout the summer where folks can come tour through her and even purchase a ride!

@SpikeWhite: Actuallly the antenna's are INVERSELY proportional to frequency- The higher the frequencye the shorter the antenna becomes

According to my log book I flew that aircraft on 22 August 1966 w/ Lt Massi for 1.3 hrs. I agree with Robert, it was a great aircraft to fly!

for some of you that think your so bright and know everything; well let me say that isnt the sun shining on the c17; you think you have it all figured out with the shadows well i guess you still have a lot to learn. how i done it well ill keep that to myself but only the best will figure out why even the belly is lit up also which the sun will not do like that with that color of lighting.

Now that he mentions it .... is it from Area 51 ??

Tom Fox: Antennas for High Frequency (HF) are large because length of antennas are proportional to the wavelength. HF covers a band of 3 MHz to 30 MHz which corresponds to wavelengths of 100 meters to 10 meters respectively. The middle of the VHF aviation communications band is 127.5 MHz, or a wavelength of 2.35 meters. In order for a HF antenna to have comparable performance to a VHF antenna, it would need be approximately 25 times the length of a VHF antenna.

The reason for a towel bar antenna instead of a wire antenna on a helicopter is that if the wire breaks it is going to end up in a rotor.

My first thought upon seeing this was, "photoshopped". Now I see some comments with similar thoughts. I would add....don't think AETC owns any non-training plans. Operational C17s (US) should be tailed as owned by AMC.

Great plane, my Son flies one of those, could be that one,, since he is a pilot for Atlas Cargo in a 747-400

The skiers are based out of KSCH Schenectady, NY. Also they do go to Iceland and Greenland. The interesting thing is that they can be converted to answer the call for our nations bidding in time of war. I live in between KALB and KSCH and I never get tired of them doing take off and landings between the two airports. Great planes and Great dedicated crews!

Great shot, Gary. As a friend said when he saw it - "I didn't know whether to salute it or stick a letter in it!"

Just kidding; great livery!

Written on 01/14/2022 by adelma

Thanks Mike. You would think that in this day antennas would be smaller. Why is this type used primarily on helicopters?
