Aviation photography for a recently refitted Cessna Citation II shot at the FBO in Provo (PVU). These images are shot for Duncan Aviation, FBO at Provo Municipal Airport. These images show the interior in as close to accurate color as possible. Also we set our schedule so we would be shooting the exteriors at sunset for maximum impact. This was an aircraft being sold, so our brief was all about making it look as good as possible to attract buyers.
Photography for aircraft is fairly hard, and a time-consuming process. Because private aircraft can be small, we find the setting of lights and tripods difficult. Therefore, each set up for a different picture of the aircraft takes substantially longer than for buildings or architectural photography.
The Cessna Citation II series of Citation jets are light corporate jets built by Cessna. First announced in September 1976, the aircraft is based on a stretched Citation I. The plane made its first flight on January 31, 1977. Improvements over the Citation I include increasing seating capacity to 10. Also, big increases are made to the overall baggage capacity. Wingspan has been increased, and this aircraft featured a larger fuel capacity than it’s predecessor. the Citation II features more powerful Pratt & Whitney engines gave this bird a higher cruise speed and longer range.
