Ryan,

Great shots. Saw Eammon Hamilton of the RAAF posting on Twitter that this was happening & Mike Yeo cursing his luck that he was off to the Singapore Airshow.

The shot overhead the MCG and the banked shot with solid water behind are probably my favourites.

I am liking the fact there was a lady in the left seat of that Pilatus :-)

That baggage pile reminded me a lot of riding the King Air up to Oshkosh... Did I ever tell you guys about the second year I did that? They decided to not fly into Oshkosh, but got the last available rental car in Wisconsin, at an airport about an hour and a half's drive from Oshkosh. There were eight, maybe even ten folks and all their camping gear crammed into this poor wagon.... Everyone sitting on top of each other... You have never seen such compressed suspension! Somehow we made it there and back but holy cow....

No planes at the moment so here's a picture of my cat Sunshine.

Thanks Gerard and Mark.
Mark i have to agree, the banked shot over the water was probably my favourite from the whole flight, all the other backgrounds are interesting but i find them distracting.

Hi guys,

Once again its been almost a year since my last post here! Time seems to go by so quickly. The quality of images in this thread just seems to get better every time i look. I love the stuff Jay has been posting from red flag.

Anyway here are a few images from a shoot last week.

Ryan



Really nice series, Ryan; welcome back!

Questions, questions... That black patch at the base of the Herc's vertical stab: is that an unpainted repair or an antenna cover? What's the square feature in the middle of the floor of the stadium? And what the heck is loaded on that seagoing floating dry dock?

That looks like an aircraft carrier for jump jets Steve. (Harriers)

Hi Steve,

The black patch on the base of the vertical stab is a de-icing/anti-icing boot. From memory they are pneumatic and used along with bleed air to break up any ice formation in the area. When the C-130J was being developed the new 6 bladed props directed airflow very differently over the tail and caused excessive ice build up in the area. Iím not 100% sure if it was all C-130Jís or just the longer C-130J-30 that had the icing issues.

The square feature in the centre of the stadium (which is The Melbourne Cricket Ground, or simply MCG to any aussies) is a cricket pitch. More accurately its 5 cricket pitches, but only one is used during a game.

And finally the thing on the floating dry dock is Australiaís newest naval acquisition, a Canberra Class amphibious assault ship otherwise know as a Landing Helicopter Dock (LHD). Well it will be when completed, in this image itís was on its way into the docks for completion. Norm (Nikon Boy) who posted on the last page is a wealth of knowledge on the subject; I have little to no knowledge of anything nautical.

Cheers,
Ryan

If you're not careful you'll learn something new every day...

Thanks, Ryan.

Thanks for the Red Flag love...

Great Herc series Ryan.

So, anyone else notice that the PC-12 was parked such that it blocked ramp access? Big ol' wing hanging right across the yellow line.

That ship is semi submersible. Water is pumped in until the deck is below water level, and then the cargo is floated on, and positioned on top of cribbing, then the ship pumps the water back out and regains its buoyancy. They can haul some really large loads around the world this way. I had recently seen one of these ships loaded with intermodal container cranes from China, to be delivered to the port of Los Angeles.

I'm pretty sure that when the flying schedule for Red Flag is published and the Aggressors decided to throw this two-holer in the mix, it just says "Release The Kraken!"
Two 10,000+ hour brains in one airframe just doesn't seem fair, does it?

Thanks Bill...

It takes quite a bit of reach (either native, via crop or via camera sensor size) to fill the frame against the mountain at Nellis. Mine are mostly via focal length (700mm and 1000mm .. 1.4X TC / 2X TC on a 500mm lens) which means there's a goodly amount of luck involved to really nail one.

The late afternoon sun really helps with the contrast and "pop" though.

Probably not, though don't forget the old adage: "There's nothing so dangerous as a [insert vehicle/vessel/aircraft category here] with two [Captains/Flight Instructors/Commanders] at the controls."

OTOH, I fully recognize that the GIB isn't just a redundant front-seater, in this case.
