What a pleasant scenario for the passengers. Yuck! I hate snakes! In fact, I have a Colt Diamondback that is perpetually loaded with snake shot cartridges. When one ventures into the back yard from the forest it is dispatched post haste.

My fine associates. You may recall that a while back I teased this group with two photos from the F-35B resdesignation ceremony at MCAS Yuma. I am happy to report that my article and images have been published as part of the new "Southwest Aviation Review" online media venture.

http://www.southwestaviationreview.com

When you get a little free time, I'd sincerely appreciate your review and comments. Southwest Aviation Review ("SoAR") is a growing media group that I believe will be making large strides in the aviation community during the next year. I felt privileged to be asked to contribute. Please check back frequently as SoAR adds articles and expands its audience.

Last teaser…




A "MAJOR" Discussion.

How appropriate! One snake to dispatch another! I do love my old Colts (3 Pythons and an Anaconda)

Congratulations, it's a great article and the photos are just plain awesome. What's the BF in BF-15 stand for? Were you there multiple days? I see tail number 15 in the ceremony, and 16 in the operating photos.

Thanks Erich. I'm not sure about the BF; however, I'll make a couple of inquiries and report back. BF-15 was the first F-35B delivered to MCAS Yuma and BF-16 was the second delivery and actually landed during the ceremony. A third F-35B was delivered later that same day. I was only on base for one day.

Jeff,
congratulations on a job well done. I hope they turn to you for many future assignments. I take it that all photos are yours unless otherwise noted?

Just an uneducated guess, Bomber/Fighter? Curious to know myself as it has been FA for Fighter Attack in recent years.

Shooting the first BBJ of 2013 on Sunday, Just killin' time til my 74-8 arrives I can't share a lot of this with you, unfortunately, because the aircraft ownership is so high profile. There's lots of clandestine features and countermeasures in most of these, not your every day liveries for sure.

We've settled in at our B&B overlooking Waipio Valley and the Pacific: again, not too shabby.

I've been thinking about what I posted the other day concerning the new ISnAP: not cool. I should have aired my concerns to the management and kept my mouth shut here. Jim and Jeff, your responses were tactful in the extreme; I was out of line and I apologize for airing my grievances in public.

As for volunteering my time to help the organization, I recognize the need but can't see my way clear to dedicating a block of time at the moment. If that changes, I'll let you and Larry know.

Nice report on -121s first F-35s Jeff.

BF-15 is the production number for the F-35B variant used by Lockheed Martin, the USAFs F-35As are 'AF-01' onwards and the Navy F-35Cs are 'CF-01 etc. So BF-15 and -16 are the 15th and 16th F-35Bs built.

Dear Zim,

Apology accepted, but not necessary. We need to work harder to make sure whatever product we present to the membership, be it print, digital, social media, is as close to perfect as humanly possible when it's released. As you know from our conversations, we're just thinly staffed, but we shouldn't use that as an excuse.

Glad you two are enjoying your tropical time together.....uh, I'm not sharing any of your R&R posts with Sheila, she thinks those spots only exist in "pitcher" books and movies...

It's a highly modified Harvard. Heard someone at the event mention it was one of the birds that was modified to be a Zero for the movie "Tora, Tora, Tora" and was then modified to this..an NA-50....but the Harvard features still show pretty strongly.

I think I have discovered why we occasionally get caught short with no top pic post. The the thread reorders on occasion and a post ends up bumped to the top of the next page some time after it was originally posted. Anyway, that's my story and I'm sticking to it!

That Harvard was modified by Les Crowder (the late) in McKinney Texas. Les and the gentleman that did all of Jimmy Leeward's work partnered on lots of stuff and had hangars across from each other at Aero Country Airport, about 5 miles west of KTKI. Les's workmanship was incredible, when you could get him to actually do it. That airplane sold fairly recently, for not all that much money, $175,000 or a little less. Truth is, when you modify a Six or a Harvard, or any airplane, it generally becomes worth less because the lineage is gone and what you have is really a "?". A Six in spotless condition like that would go for well over 200-225K.
