Tim, I can only imagine how difficult it might be to get one that has that kind of acceleration curve. There is no constant speed from which to pan. Job well done sir!

Edit TOPP I see you too

I celebrated the Birthday for the USA Sunday at the God and Country Concert in Belton, TX. Great music provided by a couple of church choirs and the 1st Cavalry Division Band. This year we were treated to the full band since they were all back from deployment. God Bless them.







And I love the 1st Calvary Color Guard...

Lynn,

Thank you so much. I'm guessing you did not see my earlier post concerning the deaths of Jane Wicker and her pilot Charlie Schwenker.

A very short version of the story - My wife and I met Jane, Charlie and the rest of her crew late Friday afternoon. I got to go for a flight in the Stearman with Janes fiance Rock Skowbow in the pilots seat.

On Saturday we witnessed the fatal crash at close range; it happened right in front of us. After meeting them and getting to know them a bit that tragic event hit us pretty hard.

Matt, I understand, thank you...

Figured I'd slip this in before Jeff comes along and blows it up...

We have four MAFFS-equipped C-130s in town to assist with the wildfire issues up north. Two are J models from the CA ANG and two are H models from a Colorado-based AFR unit.

This is one of the California birds...

Razor17 asked:
Matt, those are really nice captures from Dayton, did you get any of the P-51 "The Brat III"? The driver likes seeing himself as much as the a/c... ;-0)

Lynn


Not from Dayton, but from "The Brat III" visit to KPDK shortly before Dayton. The challenge was getting a shot when the airplane WASN'T being hand-polished or otherwise cleaned.

Only one image from me Jay. The remainder with an upcoming article I'm writing on the MAFFS-equipped 130's and their use in wildfire suppression. It was a very hot time on the ramp for me. I have a better appreciation for the folks that work these areas every day - tough duty for sure.

HAPPY 4TH EVERYONE

Happy 4th July from across the pond!

This is an F-86 Sabre I photographed on Sunday at The Shuttleworth Collection here in England.
Apparently the Sabre was the first operational Allied swept-wing jet aircraft and this one has the markings used by the USAF during the Korean War.

The angle of the rudder and the angle the shot was taken from makes for a neat optical illusion.
The visible part of the rudder makies it look impossibly small. I had to look several times to see why.

All the taildragger models I've had and seen had tailwheel steering. This AT6 obviously doesn't; is that the norm for full-scale taildraggers?

I had the honor and privilege of meeting Harry Palmer (Kingfishphoto) this evening and taking him on a quick tour of base, then a quick tour around town in search of a restaurant that was open. My first choice of a restaurant was closed for the 4th, but the second one I was heading for, said on their web site that the 4th was a holiday they were open. Hmm.. someone forgot to tell the crew, they were closed up tight when we got there. So, we headed downtown and went to the oldest running tavern in Dayton.

You guys in AZ (Jeff, Jay) are lucky that he's heading your way, definitely make time to meet up with him.

PS, I have to admit, it was odd getting the salute from the SP at the gate, till I remembered Harry's rank

Hi Ernie,

The Six has a locking tailwheel, not steerable per se. Actually it allows you to pivot in some pretty tight conditions that a steerable tailwheel won't. The pilot "steers" with differential braking. Pulling the stick back pat neutral locks the tailwheel in a straight configuration. When you want to unlock it, you add a little power and roll slightly to take the tension off the tailwheel, as you do that, you pop the stick forward of neutral and it unlocks, castoring free 360 degrees. Done properly you can spin that big bird on a dime and stop it just where you want it. You had better understand the system though, because you can also send yourself into the weeds in a hurry. 51's have the same system by and large, with a lot more mass swinging out in front and a lot more power. Handling all this becomes instinctive after a few hours, you don't even think about it. On take off the tailwheel is locked straight until you pop the stick forward to raise the tail. In landing you have a 360 castoring tailwheel until you bring the stick into your lap. Three points that happens right away, wheel landings, not til you've slowed enough that the tail is coming down and you firmly plant that little wheel on the ground. Until you lock it, it's all controlled by power and brakes, and stuff can happen faster than one can imagine.

Headed out at dawn to shoot Bryan tossing himself out of a perfectly good airplane. No, I don't feel the least bit tempted to join him.............
