NASA Super Guppy Aircraft! Transporting the FFT!

I took this photo today at Paine Field in Everett. It shows NASA's "Super Guppy" aircraft doing an escorted low pass as it proceeds towards its destination at Boeing Field in Seattle. This aircraft is transporting the FFT (full fuselage tra...iner) used by all the space shuttle astronauts during their preparation for their missions. Interesting note: only 5 of these aircraft were ever built!

I took this shot from Kerry Park last night. ISO 100, F7.1. About a 30 second exposure. I set the white balance to tungstun to give the image a dramatic blue hue. It also really helps the lights look a lot better as well. Finally I nudged the overall saturation a little bit (it didn't need much!)
