Fighter & Bomber Restoration

Nikon D80 10-24mm @ 22mm ISO 800 1/20 f/8 (-2.0 0.0 +2.0) Lr3 HDR Efex Pro

This is the Friedkin restoration hanger at the Planes of Fame air museum, Chino Airport, Chino, California.  In the foreground a Canadair F-86-E fighter is  being restored, the aircraft behind it seems to be a North American B-25 undergoing restoration.  Canadair was the Canadian licensee for the manufacture of the F-86, which was originally developed by North American Aviation.  As with many of the other aircraft exhibited at the Planes of Fame, the F-86 is being restored to total airworthiness and will be part of the flying collection in the future.

There was quite a difference in contrast between the dark interior of the hanger and its outside walls which I ended up burning in using control points in Nik HDR Efex Pro.
