Great shots Glenn & Jo! Had a few pilots on ATC asking if there were cars on the track, and even one that was a chopper trying to land at his own property somewhere nearby having a slight issue with traffic.

Slightly off topic, but am wondering if I am losing it when it comes to live atc. On my handheld scanner I have entered every freq it has, and then on airnav.com I have added any that weren't already there. (all for KAUS) When on the feed I hear the tower loud and clear, but have never been able to get it on the handheld and also not hearing about 1/3 of the inbound comm. Am I missing something?

How close are you to the tower? It might be that you are too far away, and either a more sensitive receiver or a better antenna will get you what you are looking for.

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.



It's a shame they scrapped her. So much history is lost to the scrap yard...

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

This is a little bit off topic...







Yes it's obviously fake. One day I hope to take a shot like this with my cameras. I've created this using Flight Simulator and applied a number of filters within photoshop but I quite like the result. Hopefully I won't get booted out of the forum for posting a fake image.

Cheers

James

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.

Thanks guys! Don't get too excited, you should see my reject pile. I think I better bump my shutter speed up a bit today. Rodolfo, what was that about dumb luck?

Angry, thanks for the tip on ear plugs, they were necessary at times.

Ram, we were floating around a lot but there are good views to be had around turns 7-10 where the ground rises above the track, before the hairpin. And yes, there is a lot of walking to be done!

Comrades - I've asked this same question of my AzAP colleagues and would also like to get input from my esteemed MA2A associates. As you can see, I've processed the image below as both monochrome and color. I like both for different reasons. My Ansel addiction has me leaning towards the monochrome version; however, the color has merit also. Please take a moment to tell me which you prefer and why. I'm confident that understanding your way of "seeing" this image will be instructive to me. BTW, this is one of my last shots of the day at our October photocall at NAF El Centro. Thank you.

By design (frequency and power) aircraft radios are more or less line of sight local communicators. Which isn't as limiting as it sounds since from an aircraft line of sight can be pretty far. There are exceptions to this such as the HF radios used over the North Atlantic for maintaining separation, but for the average use, aircraft radios are designed to minimize distance rather than the reverse.

I live right on the approach to DFW and up above it, maybe 4 miles from the inner marker. I can pick up most of the air/ground and the ground controller communications but rarely the aircraft on the ground communications. All this on my transceiver. My scanner doesn't do as we'll, though (quite a price differential between them, of course).

Great images from our Austin Bureau!! I should have just hung around with you down there!

Jeff, while I love "Welkerization", I like the subtle tones in the color version best.

Nice T-Bird image Rob!

Jo,

Fantastic light and sharpness here. Looks like an amazing venue. I am watching practice on Speed right now. I have shot every auto racing series this year but for NASCAR (which doesn't excite me photographically too much) and obviously F1. Nice stuff

Glenn, love the heat haze in your shot.

BTW, I am guessing Glenn and Jo know how to shoot through fencing. Preset your focus with a long lens and the fence will essentially disappear when panning. Since we shoot many venues with preselected photo holes, we are always looking for different shots by thinking "outside the hole" and use this a good bit. Some of the best perspectives are from the "cheap seats" as I call them.

Jeff, I'm gonna have to disagree with Jim and cast my vote for the B&W version. I like the color version, but the B&W version is a much stronger image in my eyes.

Now that we have boots on the ground intel on Austin, we might want to make that a gathering. will that be an annual event now? What will they do with the facility the rest of the year?
