Love that shot Jeff!
With regards to the heli..
Firstly its far more difficult than you may imagine for some shots.
The R44(you can do it in an R22) is good in good conditions but struggles in the afternoon sea breeze with hovering and transitions.
This makes some shots really really difficult.
If you get good guys in the tower it makes a big difference. We got some brilliant controllers in the morning and tight ones in the first arvo shoot.
Its a difficult air to air as you dont have any if the control you do in a planned briefed flight with so many variables you dont have to consider.
A planned session you can push your photography skills with low shutter speeds and angles etc. this is a different animal dealing with someone you dont know as a pilot, a chopper most have never shot from before,atc,variable traffic arrival and departure times,winds etc.
It is a total challenge from start to finish total air to air with challenges in areas i hadnt seen shooting traditional air to air which has its own very different challenges like safety etc.
On lenses im not sure what you have but..the 100-400 is a must.
Swapping bodies if you have a second on say a 500 with TC would work well.
600 is as long as you would want due to heat haze etc.
The 200-400 was the perfect lens for this type of flight..prime IQ but flexibility which i could not get with my 500..
Certainly a real challenge but a super pilot makes a good start!

Pulled the plug on my architectural shoot today due to intermittent overcast. Headed to HQ and had the SL in the air by 7:30. I considered it sort of a reward for navigating yesterday's moguls. Put another couple of hours on the SL and dropped in on some old friends who live on an idyllic little patch of Texas with their own grass strip and a pair of beautiful Stearman biplanes.

Thanks for that, Jo (Ha! Autocorrect wanted that to read, "Thanks for that, Major.).

I hadn't heard this Sept. 11 story before. Heather Penney is the daughter of John Penney, Reno air racing legend.

Amen, Jim.

Those of us who were on the Eastern seaboard on 9/11 well remember what a glorious fall day it was. I read yesterday about a gate agent who worked one of the hijacked flights, who cannot see a sky of "September 11th blue" without reliving the events of the day. So many of the bit players harbor terrible guilt over their inability to stop the attacks, even though they bear no responsibility. I wonder: do those higher up the chain who actually did have the information and resources to do something to thwart the terrorists possess the humanity to feel the weight of responsibility for their inaction, in their heart of hearts? I hope so.

Steve,

Thanks for the Story on Heather Penny, chilling at the very least. I remember that day well, as we all do.

I called my cousin, a Chief Master Sargent in the Air Force and asked "who did we just go to war with?" He said I don't know and had to go. My answer was "God bless you and all who serve, be safe, and call if you need anything". He did two tours in the Middle east for us, and I did uncountless tasks for his family back home to keep them safe and daily life moving forward.

AS for do "those higher up the chain who actually did have the information and resources to do something to thwart the terrorists" I suspect many are haunted by their inaction, and the rest being career politicians never got past point their fingers somewhere else.

Dan
