Following the cancellation of Aviation Nation, I think it's a fairly safe bet to assume that the Thunderbirds are done for the year.

Alot of amazing work here for some time, but I really do like how your A2A's turned out MIKKO !!! Guess it's the endless snow covered background that reminds me of ND / my home state -- and an uncle who rode shotgun when hunting all of the time for fox and coyote ..... we're talking early 60's

they'd throw them in behind the seat and be covered in fleas when they got home .. then one day the inevitiable ....... heard a noise and turned around and 1 fox was not ...... dead .. so they put a frame on the wings that had big nail spikes pointing up .... Obert would shoot, ole Charlie Crawford would land and they'd put that nail up thru the foxes - coyotes lower jaw and take off .. I'm told those carcasses would be frozen straight out

Hi Sami / neighbor .. I'm in Easton, and so are those planes in the Spitfire Hangar I imagine at the Easton Airport.

I believe the same gentleman who owns that plane owns these .....



















I understand his Mustang P51 was going thru extensive maintenance when these shots were taken last year at the Easton Airport Day October of 2012 so it didn't fly.

Not sure if there will be a 2013 Easton Airport Day .. all depends on if the YAKS are offered incentive ( fuel ) to attend I think ...... it was iffy last year but went off without a hitch !

This year plans are for the HOT AIR BALLOONS that were held same time last year at the airport, to be held on Mistletoe Drive or Lane .. anyway hoping that the gentleman who's done the Preakness Hot Air Balloons for last 20 years will organize it for the Paramedics this year with assistance .. be in August .. a Friday glow and Saturday morning lift off.

Give a shout if your ever coming this way .. I shoot wildlife thru aviation when i can find it thru events, yadda yadda with Nikon 50mm thru 600mm

you know, it's strange. The Blue Angels originally made an announcement similar to the Thunderbirds that they were grounded for the season, then have come back and said that they have heard no word, and currently still show themselves with a nearly full show schedule (including Alliance). There's definitely quite a few "AIRSHOW CANCELLED" designations in their schedule, but according to this they're still going to Bagotville, Quebec...I'm at a loss. But once we see if they're still attending some of the show dates I might just have to pull the trigger and book my flights for Alliance.


The Blues are on record as saying they were initially going to cancel month-by-month, hoping some of their season might be saved by a budget deal. Not sure at what point they'll decide to throw in the towel and cancel the season.

I know the MD ANG A-10's out of Martin State Airport had their flying hours restored after expecting to lose them all. But it looks like they will be flying without a tower.

That Me-262/Mustang flyby photo reminded me of John Fitch. I had posted a photo of him and me a couple of years ago, and I know several folks here remembered his racing career. I had read that he was credited with shooting down an Me-262 with his Mustang in 1944. John died this past October 31.

Found this interesting list of USAF victories over Me-262's. Much longer than I expected (4 pages):
http://www.afhra.af.mil/shared/media/document/AFD-100315-020.pdf

According to this, Fitch was in a P-47. Chuck Yeager is on the list too.

Wish I could join you Glenn, but I'm back on the GV that week. (Fully understanding that no sympathy will be rendered for my previous statement.)

Glenn,
Oh - I'm interested, it's just that my chances of doing it are a whopping 0.000000000000001%

Hope someone signs up for it.

Glenn Buddy, if no one can make it, it just means you'll be grinning up there all by yourself, creating Watson originals. There's nothing wrong with that scenario.....no one to break your concentration. Best of luck, looking forward to the images.

I shot a GV until late last night. The final perspective was of the aft baggage compartment. After I had it captured I realized that a Gulfstream would make a wonderful photo ship. The aft baggage compartment is stand up, and about 5'x7'. The baggage door pops in and slides up. It would be pure comfort and you would only be a few steps from a big leather captain's chair and the refreshments for the ride home. Speed would never be a problem again and it only costs a little more than the B25 to run. The initial acquisition would be a bit steep

On the subject of why I think you don't give away trade secrets to just anyone who asks, or a room full of folks who would like your job. This is a new client and a number of photographers from around the country were bidding on the assignment. Dollar wise my bid was double the nearest one and triple a couple of them. We had to get very creative with several perspectives because of some technical problems with the aircraft systems, it took some thought, experience and ingenuity. There was no possibility of another opportunity, the jet had passed it's "cold soak" earlier that day and the owner was headed to the blue water at first light. When I shook the client's hand and thanked him in the wee hours, he smiled and said, "there's no doubt in my mind that we picked the right photographer for this assignment!" Makes you feel good about the three decades of hard work invested in developing a style and a depth of techniques that are difficult to derail with a few technical hiccups.

Oh yeah Yip,

We could get five people to chip in 5K a piece and have a great time shooting in the lap of luxury. As far as creature comforts, it is at the other end of the universe from my beloved B 25. I guess I could market it as "The luxury air to air experience" If we wanted to own it the tab would be a little higher, but look at the depreciation we could take, no one would have to pay Washington a cent for the rest of their natural days!
