    Nice shots. I particularly like the "atmosphere" that the first shot creates for the National Guard C-130 aircraft.

    In addition to the quality of the images themselves, it's also interesting to see the clouds around the airport, thanks to its location on the top of the hills. I was a kid when they built it, and there was a lot of talk at the time about the amount of dirt that was moved in taking off the tops of three hills and filling in the valleys in between.

    It can be an "interesting" experience for someone flying in to Charleston for the first time to look down and assume that you are still a long ways up, and then feel the thump a second later as the landing gear contacts the runway - especially if the pilot touches down a bit hard. ;)

    With best wishes,
