Cessna 750 Citation X (N783XJ, c/n 750-0083) of XOJET landing at KMHT (Manchester, NH) on 2016-02-10. #avgeek

Lighting was perfect for aircraft photography. Hazy sun and lots of diffuse, reflected light from the snow on the ground.

Lisunov Li-3 ("103") photographed in July 1987 in Bosanski Petrovac in Bosnia & Herzegovina, former Yugoslavia. "Li-3" is a designation used for the Yugoslav version of the Li-2 with P&W engines; the Li-2, of course, was a Soviet version of the DC-3 with Shvetsov M-62 engines (version of the Wright Cyclone) and a number of other differences and modifications. I have reason to believe this is an Li-3 because the rear fuselage door was on the right side and there is that small extra window above the front door. I was not able to find a data plate or other means of accurately identifying the aircraft when I visited the site. As far as I know, this aircraft was destroyed during the Bosnian civil war in the 1990s.
