tillamook air museum

The Tillamook Air Musuem in Tillamook, OR, used to house blimps during WWII.  They were used for air surveilance of the Pacific Coast, keeping U.S. citizens safe and secure.  No longer holding blimps, the hanger now displays various types of privately-owned, historic military and experimental aircraft for public viewing.

Excellent composition, Kay!
Kay: Thanks again, Martin. Love your comments, as always.
Great image. It's amazing how that plane is dwarfed by the hangar.
Kay: Thank you, Red Pen. I thought so too. I took this picture as we were walking towards the hangar.
It looks like a toy plane.
Kay: It does, doesn't it, Michael? ;-)

Talk about scale, Kay! And I see that you and Louis are getting real soft and blurry on us these days! Awwww. smile
Kay: Hi Ginnie! Yes, we're getting crazy with softness here. I love our SC friends!
This photo looks so surreal...I love the lettering on the building and the scale of the plane against this gigantic hangar..Great shot, Kay.
Kay: Thank you, Suzanne! wink Your comments mean a lot to me.
I echo what everyone said here.My first impression was that it looked like a toy plane. I have no idea how you and Louis work your majic on these pictures but you do it well!
Kay: Aw, thanks, DD! wink You are so nice!
Wow! Kay, is magnificent the perspective that is seen here. The building seems majestic front to the airplane. Very a well thought photo! smile
Kay: Thank you, Jose! Muchas gracias!
how small the plane looks like this
Kay: It does look pretty small against that hanger, doesn't it Chantal? There are quite a few planes on display inside it too.
Looks like a toy plane, is it? tongue

You can probably fly that little plane around the insides of that huge hanger. It makes a great pic.
Kay: Hi Louis,
Yes, in fact there is a picture somewhere on that web site where a plane flies through the hangar.
This almost looks like some 3D Animation stuff. Love the treatment Kay. Youve got to let me in on your secret one of these days.
Kay: Oh, I will, Busola. Louis has got it down already. And I found mine on the Web so he understands it better than I do!
wonderful treatment on this!
Kay: Thank you, Lizzie wink
Another Good one Kay!
Kay: Thanks very much, Nacha! smile

Stuck this in my likeys, say no more
Kay: Wow, I am honored. Very honored. You made my day! Thank you!
Great image, Kay. Like everyone else I thought it was a toy plane - I still can't believe it's real! That must be one huge hangar. I like the soft treatment of the background - it makes it look even more unreal.

Kay: Ingrid, thanks for your comment. It looks even bigger from the inside of the hangar.

Wonderfull shot, the plane is like a toy LoL wink
Kay: LOL grin Dudee, you've got that right!
This is great Kay, I'm kinda of an Aircraft nut and I visit the Cardington Hangers in Bedford a lot. They are the biggest hangers in Europe and I believe the Hindenberg moored there once, also they shot the movie Batman Returns inside those hangers.
Kay: Wow, Johnny, I'm glad someone else on SC likes planes too. The Cardington Hangars sound like a place I need to visit. I'll be posting more shots of the planes in the hangar...I'm related to one of the aviation pioneers (Glenn Martin) so took a picture of his plane. Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment!
Interresting pictue ! I like very much your soft processing, it gives a perfect "atmosphere"
Kay: Thank you so much, Zeb!
Kay, just stumbled across your blog, loving your work so far. I especially like this one for all the reasons above ant it's original.
Cheers Nigsmile
Kay: Aw, thanks Nigel. I really appreciate your kind words, and I'm glad you like my blog. I hope that trend continues! Your comment made my day!
