I do hope you go and enjoy it. It was on my weekend list but it kinda got tossed aside.

Dear Matt,

What a wonderful experience you enjoyed with them earlier, and what a stark contrast in conclusion. My heart goes out to you. None of you will be "over" it any time soon. The mind is a funny thing, Tony could tell us much more about how it works in these situations, and how it parses what it needs to so we can cope.

You aren't going to feel normal for awhile, don't try to. Yesterday as I walked out of the hangar I looked up at Glenn's picture, talked idiotically to him for about five minutes, put the door down

Thanks for the kind words. Just talking about it is helping me work through it. I'm not usually the type to let these things out in the wild but I just had to get it off my chest.


Here is one part of the happy side of the weekend. My wife took this image shortly after we landed.

Jane of course is on the left, me in the middle and Rock Skowbow who was my pilot.

I hope what I say below doesn't come across in a bad way, I just have a difficult time expressing my thoughts in matters like these.

Matt, even though this ended in tragedy for Jane and Charlie, and your most vivid memories are of the accident, try to dwell on the enjoyment that you had before the accident. They enjoyed what they were doing and knew the risks involved. Even at that, they enjoyed their work performing.


Colin I'm right with you in the thought expression department, I too have a hard time putting my thoughts down in a coherent way in writing. Hell I have a hard time being coherent in any form Feels good to grin a bit. And speaking of goofy grinning here is a shot of me,again taken by my lovely wife. Jane was acting goofy and looking for a big Thumbs up and a smile for a twitter feed picture. I look like the cat who ate the canary!

Matt, you've got a very nice memory of your trip then. I would have loved to have had a flight like that, but maybe not the acrobatics. The Huey was enough for me, the camera I had with me doesn't have a strap and I was in an outside seat. We wound up doing some jinking over an area about a mile from my house. If I'd have known, I'd have taken a camera with a strap. Luckily the camera stayed with me. I'm not a roller coaster person either. If you were on the left side of the pit, then you probably did see us, as we were on the left side of that wonderful speaker array. I was the one with a manual focus lens, from which the photos I posted earlier were shot with.

Laura and the rest of the gang that was in Dayton Saturday,

I probably saw some of you on the photo tour and did not even know it. I have been really busy with my life & work and have not spent a lot of time lately looking at all of the fantastic images from you talented folks or taking photos of my own.

After the Indianapolis show got canceled I was very much looking forward to going to Dayton. I was hoping to meet a few of the folks who hang out here but never had the time to check

I did. . Not much of a roller coaster person, but I made it back to terra firma I just didn't want to see camera and lens tumble out, especially since I would have been driving those roads back home and would have seen the pieces...

Jim,
This looks like it could have been taken on mission 70 years ago. Nice conversion.

Prayers go out to all touched by the Dayton accident. Nothing takes the sting out of such a horrible event as knowledge that someone involved knew Christ as their savior.

We spent our Saturday at a local lake with friends and family. Although it was a long day of paddle boats, fishing, cooking and talking I am thankful for the ability to do so. It was one of those times where you were taught a lesson and didn't know it. Sometimes you just need to be still and listen to what is being said.

Jim, was this Saturday night at the Mustangs and Legends? They ran everyone off about an hour after the show ended and I had to watch you all fly around as we were stuck in traffic.

Hi Lynn,

No, but I have similar images from every evening/dawn at The Gathering as well. That one was from a dusk mission at The Raiders Anniversary a couple of years ago.

Tomorrow and Tuesday I have projects in Shreveport and Temple. Each of those will be six hours of driving for ten minutes of photography, ugh. High priced windshield time for sure. Thought about taking the Cub, but it would just slow me down

Laura,

Manual focus or not, you are nocking them out of the park. Great photos and thanks for sharing. I really love the F-86 shot.

By the way, Jim, I got the new Lithium battery for my Kenyon 4x4 and took it out for a spin (you'll pardon the pun) this weekend. It's so worth it: weighs only half as much as the sealed lead-acid pack it came with and has 60% more juice. In the Remos's cockpit I can manage the battery with one hand, reaching under the passenger seat; you couldn't do that with the old one, it was just too heavy.
