Coming to an End

Ebensburg Airport Office
Cambria County, PA

The following eleven photographs were shot at the Blair County Airport outside of Martinsburg, PA where I went to see the B-17 Nine-O-Nine and the B-24 Witchcraft.

The Nine-O-Nine sitting in the mid-morning sun. This is the third time that I've seen this aircraft.

The B-24 J is the last of it's kind to be flying anywhere in the world.

Waist gun of a B-17. My Uncle Stu was manning a gun like this during WWII when his B-17 was shot down and he was taken prisoner of war.

2006 Columbia 400

Nose gun of the B-17.

Bombardier's chair and bomb sight in the nose of the B-17.

The command control of the B-17 is located in the cockpit.

It take more than an hour for the haze to burn off before I was able to see some blue in the sky.

One of the Pennsylvania State Police helicopters goes out for a short test flight after receiving service at the Blair County Airport.

Still looking good at 40 is this Piper Cherokee that was making a fuel stop at AOO while I was there.

Another oldie from Piper is this Piper 24 Comanche 180.

"Life After People" isn't all that unrealistic.

Work was recently completed on the new pedestals for the statues that are part of the St. Joseph Shrine on the campus of Saint Francis University. In the background is the Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art.

One of the welcoming sights as students return to the campus for fall classes is the Bell Tower.

Somehow this katydid got into the house and hung out for awhile on a storm door trying to figure out why it couldn't get back to the outside.

The cardinals are still enjoying the seeds in the patch of weeds near the bird feeders.

Shot at the Davis Family Farm while on assignment.

I spent part of Sunday afternoon covering a Republican meet-and-greet corn roast held on the Davis Family Farm outside of Dysart, PA.

Republican Lieutenant Governor candidate Jim Cawley talks with local during the event.

Karissa Shatzer of WJAC-TV, Channel 6, interviews Mr. Cawley.

Karissa also interviewed Ninth Congressional District of Pennsylvania U. S. Representative Bill Shuster. These two shots give you an idea of what actually happens during an interview. What you see on the 6 o'clock news looks a lot different than these two scenes.

U. S. Representative Bill Shuster stood out in the rain to talk with some of his constituents. A little bit of rain didn't deter him from discussing local issues.

Marty Yahner dipped this fresh boiled ear of corn into a Mason jar full of melted butter, coating it from end to end.
