Part 2


Thanks for the memory - I used to live up in the Waitakeries back in the '70. Then Titirangi, eventually buying a place at the end of Kauri Pt Rd, Langholm overlooking the Manakau Harbour, towards the Auckland airport 8 miles away. (The flounder fishing at the bottom of the garden was outstanding!)

Your ground shots of Ardmore reminded me of a flight I did from Ardmore to Gt Barrier Island to plant a windsock on the tiny airfield... In those days, no electricity - we had to use petrol driven drills! Hah, those were the days...

Even though I left 30 odd years ago, I still have a passion for NZ - Thanks

EDIT for image...

I see where Canon is announcing future announcements, on the announcements, of the possibility of the announcement of the possible release of a large mp camera in 2014. In the mean time my D800's continue to pay for themselves, over, and over, and over. Canon has clearly laid out a strategy that will give Nikon every opportunity to best them a second time in the large sensor niche.

Well the Unlimited class is a cluster you know what. The Unlimiteds decided they are not racing this year. They feel that the max altitude at pylon 8 of 250ft is not safe, and course changes made by RARA are putting too many G's on the pilots.

RARA then went behind the Unlimiteds back and formed a new group called WUR, Warbirds Unlimited Racing, with Tiger, Strega's owner at the helm of the new group. Matt Jackson heads the other group.

Matt was to fly Strega this year, but now Tiger and Matt are obviously not working together, so it looks like Strega is out for sure. Who will cross the so called picket line with Tiger and race? All I know is that this is probably the death blow for the Reno Air Races. They simply can't survive without the Unlimiteds. It looks pretty good that this will be my final trip to Reno. Jimmy Leeward caused one hell of a mess.

OH! I thought it was cancelled too! Are you going? Anyone else going to be there?

I'm hoping to go Saturday, as I'm picking up my girlfriend at the airport about an hour after the show ends.

I'll miss not seeing the military birds, but I'll take a Mig, a Sabre and a Corsair any day.

Thanks Steve - I value your comment and opinion. I have reworked the original. I have removed those items (Thank to Content Aware in PS) and have 'turned the lights off' in some of the houses and turned 'em down in the rest.
Recropped to get nearer the rule of thirds.

Two versions - not sure which I prefer... colour or B&W?

Further C&C welcome



Beautiful, Donald! The only thing I'd fix now is the square shadow left over after you removed the larger of those two buildings. Not that many people would notice it, but it's there and it sticks out if you know what to look for. And it's an easy fix.

Tim, Reno sounds like a royal cock-up. I hope that the Unlimiteds and RARA can work things out, because I'm with you 100% when you say that Reno is finished without them. The Unlimiteds _are_ Reno, at least as far as the majority of the public is concerned. Section 3 sure as hell isn't paying to watch the bipes race.

Well I don't know what to do now... we are kind of thinking about going to Reno this year, although we'd have to arrive on the Friday as we have a concert to attend here in Austin on the Thursday night. So if there's no Unlimiteds, what would we get to see on the Saturday and Sunday?

All the other classes will be racing. Things are really in flux right now, which screws attendance. They are shooting themselves in the foot.

Thanks Steve - I cannot see a shadow - Is it possible that you are seeing a good 'ol English hedgerow. (We keep 'em neatly trimmed and square topped.) None-the-less, thanks for the CnC

Looks like we missed the deadline for pre-purchasing photo tour/pit tickets, so I have no idea where I'll be during the show. I'll PM you my cell number, hopefully we can meet somewhere.

Very tasty sample, J-A. That Su22 is a mean-looking machine. But my favorite image here is the Mirage 2000D: crispy and delicious.

Hmmm. I went to the Fort Worth-Alliance air show website to buy pit passes for this year's show, but the "Purchase Tickets" button takes you to the 2012 show's AttendStar page, where you obviously can't buy tickets for 2012 or 2013. Anybody know what's going on, or have a better link?

Don't worry about that Erich, I'll make sure there are tour/pit tickets available for you. You'll be with the group, we wouldn't have it any other way.

Didn't see Zim's post re: AFW. I'll get answers to all of this Monday morning, but rest assured, MA2A folks will all be together.
