Waiting For Re-unification
Jet engines stored on the tarmac at Planes of Fame, Chino Airport, Chino, California, waiting to be reunited with the airframes they were designed for. A significant amount of space at Planes of Fame is given over to storage of aircraft airframe and mechanical components collected for ultimate restoration. I was attracted to the lines, colors and textures of the various metallic elements and the patina that time out in elements has put on them. It seems almost sacrilegious to allow these instruments of advanced engineering technology from the hands of man to seemingly be discarded and allowed to be broken down by the potentially destructive powers of Mother Nature, but I am sure these particular objects will eventually be rehabilitated and possibly fly another day.
