Jay, I can see you having one of those, trailer mounted and fully automated to track on other aircraft. Instead of the gun, your camera and choice of lens would be used. The cockpit controls would allow you to zoom in and out, focus, change the settings. It would have a built in computer with Photoshop and Lightroom (NIK Plugins too) so you could process the images on the "fly" and the monitor would be located where the HUD is. And when all of that activity exerts too many G's on your body, you would be wearing the appropriate attire to prevent blacking out.

Neat, huh?

They have flight simulators like that at the Patuxtent Naval Air Station museum - it takes the experience to a completely different level!

Back when Falcon 3 came out, I remember seeing several people had built their own F-16 cockpit tubs using the Thrustmaster stick/throttle/pedal combo. A few did put their 14" CRTs in place of the HUD.

Pretty funny really...

No problem Zim, I got up way to early and was half a sleep at Burger and Beer and had not eating any thing all day.
Next time I'll do better.

I will admit though, I am exercising my rights as a citizen of Australia to ignore it yet again despite the fact that my mothers sister married one of yours who flew in the battle of the Coral Sea and then waited to the late 1960's to "come out" and come out he did in a big way.

Seems like we basically agree Tim. No judgement here, I think I made that very clear. I don't want to be force fed, or coerced, the rest is completely their choice.

In an answer to prayers, we were blessed with some much needed rain today. While it kept me busy chasing storm-related issues, I got a few moments at the end of the day to catch a few rays of light at the airport.

Hey all,
I just returned from Florida. I checked out all sorts of locations. Here's a quick sampling of what I have.
The icing on the cake was stopping by Peachtree Dekalb Airport on my way home. The sun was setting and had some nice light with darker clouds off to the east. I grabbed the 100-400 hoping to get some shots. I walk from the parking lot over the hill and there sits the Memphis Belle. That long lens didnt do me any good. After getting some shots I forgot that I had a 50mm in my backpack with me! arg!

1. Osprey and and lunch





2. Burrowing (edit) Owl





3. Crab legs





4. Icing on the cake of my trip! The 100-400 was completely useless up close to this!

All very nice shots, Paul.

Is the borrowing owl related to the thieving magpie?

I thought it was funny...

Meanwhile, back at El Centro, a couple from the morning session outside the fence line, just before the blowing dust cancelled the Blues' morning mission and sent us looking for shelter.

someone sent me this bit of history. fascinating story.

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/07/15/world/europe/nadezhda-popova-ww-ii-night-witch-dies-at-91.html

Nadezhda Popova, WWII ‘Night Witch,’ Dies at 91
By DOUGLAS MARTIN
Published: July 14, 2013

The Nazis called them “Night Witches” because the whooshing noise their plywood and canvas airplanes made reminded the Germans of the sound of a witch’s broomstick.

Ms. Popova, standing, with other Soviet pilots in World War II. “We bombed, we killed; it was all a part of war,” she said in 2010.

The Russian women who piloted those planes, onetime crop dusters, took it as a compliment. In 30,000 missions over four years, they dumped 23,000 tons of bombs on the German invaders, ultimately helping to chase them back to Berlin. Any German pilot who downed a “witch” was awarded an Iron Cross.

You know, one of the great things about this craft of ours is the fact that no matter where one finds one's self there is probably something cool that can be captured..............
