WASP at night by Collector Prof. Ulrich Rudofsky
This photo is of the LHD-1 USS WASP (AS32 model) operating in the dark of night. I took this photo as follows: The base was dull black cardboard and lighting was indoor sunlight. The camera was a Mavica SONY MVC-FD71. The nightime effects were created by using the MSN Photo Editor, mainly by turning down the gamma effect and increasing contrast. The angle of approach to the WASP may be a high speed "S"-shaped descent crossing amidships of the carrier and asking for emergency help!!! For this photo (by an absolutely incompetent non-flyer like myself) I would first pass to communicate with the WASP of my problem, and then try to achieve the instructed attitude for a hopefully safe and uneventful landing. I think that the proper angles of taking these photos is very important to bring out the real beauty of this Argos model. A quick lesson on how to operate helicopters or Harriers from the decks of an LHD by a real US Marine flyer would be very welcome. Thank you in advance!

Painting by Mr. Ralph Love of the USS Arleigh Burke.
