Got to hang my feet out the side of the Remos today for an unusual A2A. The Bücker Jungmann is local, flown by a proper Dutchman. The RV-8 came through here yesterday and the Bücker's owner called me up to arrange a shoot early this morning. The RV-8 is wearing the livery of the Royal Netherlands Air Force training squadron and is owned by a USAF special ops pilot home from a deployment.

Pretty good looking pair, though it wasn't easy to get the RV-8 slow enough and flog the Bücker fast enough to stay in formation.


These look almost like paintings, well done friend!

TYVM, all. I enjoyed this A2A a lot, particularly since the two planes made such an unusual and interesting two-ship. I've known Doedo and his wife, Gail, for a number of years; she piloted the Remos yesterday while Doedo flew on us in the Bücker. This was the first time I've flown in the Remos with my legs hanging out the door. It worked fine for photography, but I lost a couple of things out of my shirt pocket (with the flap buttoned!) as well as an extra T-shirt that I was using to pad the door frame so my legs wouldn't go to sleep. I'll have to re-think that aspect of things; luckily no harm was done. Next time I'll ask my pilot to slow down (we were at full throttle for much of the formation work) before I try to haul my legs back inside the cockpit, though: my knee ligaments were at full stretch from the side loads.

We had a bit of weather coming through, so I set my 5DmkII and 24-105 on a tripod and set the camera at 15" @ f/8 on an intervalometer set at 17 seconds. This was the prize for my efforts


Wow gerov, wow. Awesome display of nature

Beautiful photos of 'Grumpy' on the ramp at Dayton NightOwl Cat! Would you mind allowing HFF to use those? We always seem to be too busy at events to capture the adoring crowds that airplane draws ;D

Right you are Brian. Sorry about the loss of your Mom.

I have spent the afternoon wedged behind the av console and the wall at HQ, and still have no sound from the two new speakers outside. I am at that juncture where wise men walk away from the task for the evening, before something gets hurt! I should have know that I was in for trouble when I opened the boxes and discovered that Best Buy thought it would be nice to have a black speaker and a white speaker.Two hours later I had that sorted out grrrrr.

Heres the remains of a T-33, found in a metal scrap yard in Tempe , AZ. Guess he missed Willy, flew past Falcon Field, and fell short of Phoenix Sky Harbor. The other smash landing appeared in Apache Junction. I had lunch today with an US Air, 757 pilot. He said the pilot in the recent air crash at KSFO, had 30/35 hours in the aircraft, and it was his first time to that airport. He said the co-pilot, an instructor pilot had about 3000 to 3500 hours in that aircraft. Makes one wonder?

HQ Thursday, Al. 'Nuf said?

BTW, the owner of the Bücker Jungmann I photographed yesterday sent me a link to a piece of film from 1938, when the Dutch equivalent of the Army Air Force participated in a flying meet and aerobatics competition in the Dutch town of Eelde. He recreated the paint scheme of Jungmann LVA 75, as seen in the video; there are no records of what happened to that particular aircraft.

I fly United most of the time, but it's not an airline I'd recommend: we have little choice here in Denver, where United has about 70 percent of all departures.

Try hotels.com for hotel bookings and TripAdvisor.com for reliable customer reviews. Mid-market hotel chains I can recommend include Hilton Garden Inn, Marriott Courtyard, Hampton Inn, Homewood Suites, Crowne Plaza. Somewhat down the food chain are Holiday Inn Express, Travelodge, Motel 6, Super 8, Microtel, and Best Western.

Consumer Reports published a Buying Guide for hotel rooms last summer; Microtel was their highest-rated budget hotel chain; EconoLodge and America's Best Value Inn were the worst.

http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/hotel-rooms/buying-guide.htm

The press release that goes with it also has some useful info.

Amen Brian, It's been 4 years since my dad pasted, 2 yrs since I moved to a good job (from an ugly one) in another state, bringing mom with and so on but you know you are right "it takes time"! I could whine about all the trials and tribulations (as you or many others could) but it's all about the journey. Time helps us refocus and move forward again, having faith help too.

Tonight's plans were to work on the basement, putting it back together again after the water damage from storms. Instead I just got home from the ER because mom had slurred speech, confusion, tingling in her hands. Thankfully she is having a drug reaction and not the obvious first thought, stroke. And tonight's lesson is again family is today's project, the other stuff can always be tomorrows work.

Thanks Liz, and sure, I'd be honored if HFF used them. I can understand why you'd be too busy to take photos
