Beautiful job, Kevin. I like the Saab with the eyes on the winglets, nice catch with the F-16 taking off in the background, and the steeple giving some sense of location. And how often do you see a bicycle on the flight line? Only in Europe, I bet.

I also thought it was interesting that the Portuguese F-16 retained the "feet" measurement in the English instructions under the canopy. I would think English-speaking Europeans would more readily understand a measurement in meters than feet.

We've been to the Pensacola show once - 08 i think. Vance can tell you - it was windy and a bit chilly but not too bad. The wind was so strong that we ended up taking the hoods off the lenses just to keep them steady. I may have to revisit that show - and i think there is one coming up in July there too. dBear wants another trip to the beach!


That wind was blowing the plastic chairs and small children around like leaves. Then it started to rain during the night show. Still had a lot of fun and came away with some good shots.

Mark, when I retired in 1994, our specialist had bicycles to bring their tools and parts out to the flight line. They were the older work bikes with small front tires and over sized baskets in the front. The supervisors had yellow Schwinn bicycles. (Crew chiefs had to walk!)

Wow, some great stuff here recently. Jo, kudos for the cover! Great shot, too... really shows some personality in that airframe. And Kev, the colors, captures, and photographic quality in those images is even more impressive than the paint schemes and aircraft themselves.

I'm going to need my "A" game at RIAT just to toe the line with you guys, that's for sure! Then again, I may just work on the ice cream and let you folks take care of the shooting, you seem to have everything well in hand without any help!

Really? That's pretty cool, I didn't know that. Thanks!

Think it is still done?

Kevin, Wow these Tiger Meet images are all great.

I really like this one. The paint scheme is great and the eyes on the Canards are way cool. But the best part for me is the contrast of the multi-million dollar fighter jet with the bicycle. It would be really neat if it were a tandem and you had the crew chief and pilot riding it

Mark, I was out there last October, but there isn't much going on. They transitioned from the F-16 to the Predator drone, and since they can't launch the Predator (they are still in the coffins) they only walk around the hanger.

Love all the Tiger Meet photos. Those are really impressive paint jobs!

A couple of Shots from our Memorial Day Parade. It was nice to see a bigger crowd than usual, and the number of parade units was higher as well.


First My Salute to Memorial Day:

Several hundred motorcycles ridden by current and past service men and women opened the parade.

Thanks again guys! All from Tyndall this year - I had help from Rich and Vance on those, I just waited till I saw what they were shooting at and I'd hold the camera up in the same general direction and clicked away.

One more before i get to work...
