Any guesses what the former AF1 might fetch? What's a clapped-out DC-9 without the fancy paint scheme worth on the open market? Not much, right?


Probably a good deal more than a 727

DC9s sell for 1-2M$ all things being equal. 727s can be had for less than the price of a new Piper Arrow because nobody can afford to use them UNLESS they're the VIP model. They're seriously fast (and that's represented in fuel burn) but for passenger travel they usually shut down the third engine after takeoff to conserve fuel, so they're back in the stupor-80 speed class. And since they require three pilots, no airline will touch the things. If you're rich and don't give a damn and don't need continental range, they're wonderful.

Some of the fastet cycle to cycle flights I've ever been on were in the Northwest 727 days.

Darn near supersonic in comparison to the 737s of Southwest.

They polished and painted her for a Breiteling (sp?) watch ad. She's now DOLLY on the left side but they kept Spam Can on the right.

Oh My! It's even better in print than I could have possibly hoped!

Thanks to all who helped with refining the concept!

Jay, I bet that would really look sharp as well on a canvas print from Mpix...

I think someone is pumping up the history of that 9 so it will bring more than the spot aluminum price, I doubt any President ever stepped foot on a DC-9.

NBC News had some footage of Bill and Billary Clinton stepping off it in Buffalo, circa 1999.

I think I'll be looking into either renting a 100-400L (or 400L) for RIAT this year, either that or trying out a Canon mkIII 2.0x TC on the 70-200 (instead of the cheap Kenko I have)...

Be sure to check if you have autofocus when using the 2.0 TC or else you will be manual focusing and that is very hard with moving objects..

The 7D focuses OK with the Kenko 2.0x TC, it even manages it with stacked 1.4x and 2.0x although IQ is in the toilet!

Second hand I can get a Canon mkIII 2.0x TC for 300, a 100-400L is around 725... I'm convinced that as soon as I buy a 100-400 they'll announce the replacement I might have a look at the Sigma 50-500 as well, the 150-500 I had was OK for the money. I was hoping that the 7D/70-200/2.0x might be good enough for my invited needs, but I wasn't too happy with the results. Although I have to be honest that my panning wasn't very good either, so it might be unfair to blame the tools entirely just yet

I kept buying the newest iteration of Canon's 2X because they kept telling me I'd love "the new one", that has not been the case. Canon's 2X III is just about worthless on the existing 100-400. They make reasonable, but expensive paper weights. Sigma has always been "ok for the money".

Rumor has it that the new 100-400 will be released this year, but I wouldn't put much stock in that, given their inability to bring the 200-400 to market.

Yeah I wouldn't be using a 2.0x on a 100-400, it's more using the 2.0x on a 70-200 mkII instead of buying a 100-400. My main use for a longer lens would be airshows and motorsports, as I'm able to stop down (slow shutter speeds as I prefer shooting props) I was hoping it would suffice... I'll get a proper long lens eventually but it's not likely to be this year.

Yes - or any other politician.

Looking at that Mustang, I find myself a bit confused: It looks like either the flaps are down, or both ailerons are up; and it looks like the left aileron is longer than the right one. Are my eyes playing some kind of tricks on me?

Flaps are down possibly to slow down for the camera ship and port side aileron is deflected a little bit translating in the right bank of the Mustang if I'm correct.

I went up in the Remos at noon today to give the Kenyon 4x4 a workout. I wanted some turbulence (and got it) and put the 0.6 ND filter on, too, to slow the shutter at reasonable apertures. So here's a sample of what it can do for you. At 1/400 second, which is two stops slower than I normally try to shoot aerials with the 70-200, my hit rate is about 60% for keepers and 40% for tack-sharp keepers. Here's a highway interchange at full-frame and again at a 1:1 crop.

The Kenyon and the D800+70-200 is a handful in the cockpit, and it's hard to look through the viewfinder when the subject is approaching 90 degrees to the longitudinal axis. Some adaptation to my normal techniques is required, but for a first effort, I'm quite pleased.

Thanks Brian! I'm putting a plan in place to take this rig downtown. I envision a series of images of the Dallas skyline at about the same illumination, using a 407 as the platform. I'm going to be in Houston next week, might try putting the same thing together down there. I love it when a new tool gets you thinking about new possibilities! Now what I need is a body that has less noise at higher iso settings, lots less noise.


Compared to what? Have you ever considered borrowing a D4 from Bill Fortney to compare versus your 1Dx?
