Complete with two mad pilots and equally mad and disgusted flight attendants. American is nothing if not consistent.

Lady Jo and I checked out the new Formula 1 track in Austin today - not a ton of great access photographically but we found a few gaps in the fence and tried to take advantage. these cars sure make some weird noises!

Current F1 point leader...

Nice shots Glenn! I would have trucked back down there if I'd a thought we could get that close. The 800 would work through that fence! What's traffic looking like. Everyone was anticipating a mess.

One from this evening. Just rented an EOS-M for a 10-day trip to Nebraska and am going to take it along with my 5Dc and try to travel a bit lighter than normal.

We could use some. I walked out of my last service call this evening and this is what I saw. It made me thankful for the area I live in and raise my family.

JW:

There are plenty of spots where 600mm+ would be nice looking long down straights, but there are also plenty of good elevated corner exits spots to shoot over the fence where thats way too long. I'm not planning to go back, only scored a free ticket for today (which I promptly lost as soon as I got into the gate so I couldn't even get to me seat) They were expecting 65k today and I breezed in and out using the required shuttle bus service. Expecting 85k tomorrow and 110k on Sunday - maybe a different story unless you buy the helicopter shuttle for $600/person/perday.

As for the lenses, they were not enforcing any sort of camera rules. The general admission was full of 500mm/600mm's on monopods. There are definitely some prime perspectives granted to those with photo access so that would be worth looking into in the future. Does iSnap need Formula 1 media coverage?

Wrei:
As for the lens sneaking, here is how my entry went. Packed my camera backpack with D300, 300/2.8 and 70-200VR. slung a D7000 around my neck with a 30mm for a tourist looking decoy. The bag checker at the gate made me unzip my backpack to look inside - she saw my stuff and said "those aren't bigger than 10mm are they?" the obvious answer was no! Good thing she didnt see my 10.5mm fisheye.

When asked a witless question, always give the answer they want to hear.

Well, here are some pics from the F1 track today. Glenn is doing better than I am in knowing who is whom!

Here's... a couple of cars. And a helicopter, from which all your overhead TV shots are coming; spot the camera on the nose and (I think) a transmitter on the skid. This guy was busy every time the F1 cars were on the circuit.

There's also a bunch of historic F1 cars, and some Ferraris and GT3s. Hopefully more of these tomorrow.

Meanwhile, I am going to take a mortgage out so I can pay for some more food... jeez, they brought the European pricing structure with them, and the portions are pretty small to boot. $4 for a regular bottle of water, $7 for a larger one. Going to try and smuggle in some snack bars from now on.

Pretty impressed with the traffic flow so far though. I have never seen as many buses in my life; they must have hired every bus charter in Texas, they are all streaming up and down 130 shuttling people back and forth to the parking lots. Bring your walking shoes though; it's a good mile walk from the drop-off to the track entrance! And then you have to walk all around the track... Sleep is calling me now.

Not that Jo has any panning skills, you understand... just pure dumb luck she got tack-sharp captures with perfect motion cues.

Yeah... that's it...

Ever heard of the Douglas XB-19? Me, neither. A look at this video might explain why: in its first landing attempt the largest airplane in the world (until the Convair B-36) almost got away from its test pilot.


I seem to recall Bugs Bunny giving reference to the B-19 a few times
