Story behind the story of Gary.
This aircraft looks similar to the one piloted by Gary Powers in 1960 that was shot down over the Soviet Union. CIA pilot Gary Powers' U-2 spy plane was shot down while flying an espionage mission in Soviet Union airspace sparking open conflict between the USSR.
While flying at its extreme operating altitude it avoided several attempts of interception by MiG-19 and Su-9 fighters to reach it. The Russians fired a missile salvo of which one destroyed one of their own Soviet MiG-19 fighters, killing the pilot. When one missile hit the U-2 Powers bailed out but was captured soon after landing. Although Powers was sentenced for 10 years imprisonment he was released after two years during a prisoner exchange for a Soviet officer.
At this time, in the middle of the Cold war years, Soviet and American relations worsened considerably.

Nice shot of the ultimate PA23-250 Aztec F model. A big load carrier and a very stable a/c.

It appears similar to the Lockheed Super Constellation that was involved in a Mid-air collision with a Douglas DC-7 over the Grand Canyon in 1956. It was the first commercial airline crash to result in more than 100 deaths.

A great photo of the largest military transport aircraft in the world. Sadly production was stopped in 2014 due to the on-going political tensions between Russia and Ukraine where the aircraft were built.

Not exactly. It might be based on a B747-200 airframe, but it's actually a Boeing E-4 Advanced Airborne Command Post. One of only 4 currently in service with the USAF, although two are currently out of service due to damage suffered as a result of a tornado that struck Offutt AFB in June.

Clearly not a B-52 cockpit...no trim controls required and a lack of controls for an 8 engine JET.

This is an OV-10 Bronco. Apparently FlightAware cannot recognize this aircraft and keeps saying it is a Boeing 777. Look closely this is not a Boeing 777.

Great catch John. Love this color scheme on the 747-8 and also the lineup in the background with two Hainan Airlines 787-9 special schemes at the same time.

Brand new 1967 model C337. Photo taken in May 1967. Probably on her delivery flight from Wichita KS. Looks like a ferry tank visible in the mid cabin area..

Nice shot. Another Pelair heavy Metro freighter but in a totally different livery visible behind KDO plus a Toll ATR42 freighter, either VH-TOQ or TOX, with blue/green tail and characteristic full rudder deflection, is partially hidden.
