N652KA (cn AC-652B) Believe it or not, I got this shot of KCR652, an SAA227-AC Metro III, registered to Kolob Canyons Air Service (KCR), arriving on RWY 6L from Memphis (KMEM). Somehow, I managed to get myself up from the fall, hobble back to the parking lot, and lean against the car for the shot. Since the damage was already done, I figured what the hell, I’m gonna go for it. That would be the last shot for me for quite a while. Then it was time to drive to Fairview Hospital ER. Adrenalin is a powerful thing!

N746KA (cn AC-746B) As you probably know by now, I try to catch the action in all types of weather. I was tracking a few inbound turbo-props that I didn’t recognize. I managed to catch KCR746, an SAA227-AC Metro III, registered to Kolob Canyons Air Service, arriving on RWY 6L from Memphis (KMEM). I got a new airline and tail for the database but soon after these shots, I slipped on wet leaves in the grass and tumbled down the small hill at one of the well-known spotting sights near the approach of RWY 6L. The fall resulted in a very loud “pop” and painful tear in my leg and knee. Those of you who have spotted there before know of the tree that blocks our shots. I was attempting to walk around it in hopes for that “better angle.” I underwent surgery to repair the damage the next morning and will be laid up for a few months. Needless to say, I was clumsy and let a few leaves get the best of me. For the rest of you; please be careful out there and watch your footing.
