Once again we have come to the start of another basketball season here on the Plains, except this year, we have a new coach with Tony Barbee and a brand new arena, the Auburn Arena. Last night they played their last exhibition game against Columbus State, and while it was a great game to watch, Auburn lost with a missed tip-in at the buzzer. It could be a long season but we are still looking forward to each game coming up. The photo of the day was taken from the game last night. War Eagle.
The photo of the day today is a shot I took of Air Force One on it’s takeoff run at Las Vegas McCarran Airport a while back. With the elections taking place tomorrow I thought this would be an appropriate shot, but we are also trying to get to a place where we can watch the Space Shuttle launch tomorrow as well, so it served two purposes today. If we get to the Space Coast I will post some photos on Twitter and here, but I am sure we won’t get as close to the shuttle as I was able to get here with AF1. For additional aviation photos you can check out some of my shots at http://www.planephoto.net as well.
