Hm, good point about the ear protection; thanks.
We will see what I can take in... they say they allow personal camera equipment, maybe I can get my 400mm in there and perch at the top of the hill by the hairpin... I'm thinking on Friday I might just take my little camera and see what everyone else is packing!


Jo,

With 2 free practice sessions on the Friday, it might be better to try out the gear on the Friday.

Yeah, I am thinking that if I take my 100-400 then actually it is less than the 10" length they originally wanted to prohibit... so maybe I'll take that on the 7D and the little Olympus.. that way it might be manageable. I think we will be on our feet for three looooong days!

Cool overheads! Given that friday is the likely to be the least crowded day of the race weekend, I'd say bring your long lens then. Sunday might get very crowded, especially at the hairpin. Like Angry says, there are fences galore all over the track. Some GA sections are however not too bad to look over the fence. Might need lots of walking though

I got an e-mail this morning that FIFI is grounded again. #2 is toast. They need $250,000 for repairs and a spare. I think it may be time for the CAF to take a look at what the Sanders decided to do with their Sea Fury Argonaut, and put R-2800's in that thing. With the exception of us gearheads nobody would know the difference, and it would be much more reliable.

Well that didn't took long just after two years hope they use something like your idea Tim.
Would be a shame if they can't fix it.... lucky to have it seen fly once in 2010 at Alliance were it came in for Static after it's Restoration...

When I visited the Air Force Museum in Dayton a couple of years ago, we saw them working on a B-29 engine during the behind the scenes tour:





Too bad that by virtue of it being there, it won't ever fly again.

BTW, no trick filter, just the iris on the Nikon 24 PCE.


I notice the same tendancy with the 24pc-e to create those enhanced and larger than normal starlight effects. Does the til/shift optics make the starlight effect more distinct for some reason?

what the heck is in the tail of the X? It looks so wide at the top almost like a electronic warfare pod.

A wine country landscape, anyone? I'm out of airplanes at the moment. This is the Sonoma Coast region, from Bodega Point.

Love the (I think it's) Ice Plant that grows along the coast in NorCal...

Beautiful scene Zim. I can almost smell the sea air!

Guess it takes stout mechanics to drive the tailplane at .97 Mach...

I'm wondering if those cylinder heads will fit on my old BMW motorcycle might give it a little "extra"

That is beautiful Steve. I could just sit there with a few bottles of wine, some good food, and watch a few sunsets

Ever seen a corn maze? From above? I shot this from the Bell 47 last week.
