Water tower under construction

50 degs + today had to get some flying in a little breezy though so most shots are from same general angle.

Interesting perspectives, although the closest of above passes looks close enough... to make me wonder how many planes one could find already *in* there.

Cool pictures.

You should take some copies to the construction workers, I bet they would get a kick out of them.

Very cool. I took some pics of the local health club I go to (since I was flying nearby). Took some in to the desk. They could have cared less. Go figure.

That's what I was thinking, copies for them would be nice. I bet they got a kick out a little plane buzzing them!

Thanks Alot.
I was thinking of takeing some overthere on Monday, there wasn't anyone around today when I was takeing the pictures.
The building next to it is a fire station they may like a picture or two.
This tower is huge, the seams on the base are at least 10 or 12 feet high, I bet you could fit a hole bunch of planes inside the tower, the wingo came close enough because of the winds.

Great photos Ed ! What a neat thing to see. Imagine the weight that will be supported in that sphere.

Thanks for all the nice comments! My wife pointed out a oddity in this one, the shadow is round on top, after looking closer at all the pictures it is the same in all of them. Kind of weird what lighting direction can do!
I'll swing by there tommorrow and see if I can get some specs. on it (weight, gallons, height ect).

VERY cool. There's no way, from the ground, you could tell what the inside looks like. Neat to be able to take your r/c airplane and photograph the inside.

Those are some of the most unique pictures I've seen posted on the 'zone.

A+ !
