Big & Close
updated: Jan 16, 2013, 9:08 AM

By John Wiley

I was awaiting takeoff clearance at the edge of the runway, when this USMC KC-130J aerial refueling tanker passed so close you can see the pilot in this pic. I was happy to have my camera, and nothing better to do while we waited. Even aircraft this big practice what every pilot does during training: the "touch and go" landing. After the squeal and smoke of those tires grabbing concrete, with a roar of engines it leapt back into the air and went on to rumble the rafters at Costco.
