Low level Aerial Panorama of Sulfur Canyon and the Chiricahua Mountains

Centered on Sulfur Canyon on the east side of the Chiricahua Mountains this panorama photograph is composed of 10 images. Taken from just above a small double hill which sits at the mouth of Sulfur Canyon (31 50' 49.35" N, 109 06' 45.66" W) and 1 mile from the cliff face, the image stretches from just south of Cave Creek Canyon on the right side of the image (north), south along the mountain range to Squaw Mountain just north of the entrance to Price Canyon, a distance of approximately 16 miles. One of the double hill hilltops is visible in the foreground at the bottom center of the low level aerial photograph giving the impression of a ground based panoramic photograph. The "steep bank turn" practical test standards maneuver was used to set the aircraft's flight path and capture the 10 consecutive images.
