Waco .. 450 Stearman .. Speedmail


Should have bumped my ISO before we even left the ground. Got caught with DOF too shallow for this shot.

We will be driving it in about two weeks - looks impressive!

That's what struck me, too, Nick: how'd you like to drive up and down that set of switchbacks all day? The mine is the Golden Sunlight Mine, and it produces gold.

Anyone used a gimbal with a Canon 300 F2.8 IS?

If so, do I need to turn the IS off when using it.

Quite a few of the mine trucks are diesel electric drive, so when they come down the haul roads, the electric motors provide dynamic braking to a large extent. Caterpillar haul trucks such as the 797B and 793C are powered just like the over the road 18 wheelers are. These haul trucks do not have dynamic braking, so rely on several sets of brake shoes per wheel. Caterpillar has started manufacturing diesel electric drive trucks already, but the size of the Cat trucks are not as large as Liebherr or Komatsu trucks. Still, when a mine truck is hauling in excess of 400 metric tons of ore or coal while traveling up the haul roads, brakes become super critical

A friend suggested tossing this in After Effects and using the particle generator to make better looking flames. Much happier with this concept now...

Oooh, I like that a lot too. Since it's has become a total artistic exercise, how about cloning out the gear on the FW?

I also totally missed the smoke plume off the FW in the first rendition. The flames work much better.

Dropping the gear was often a sign of surrender (as well as an indication of hydraulic failure) so the gear coming down while being flamed is perfectly correct.

(or so I'm told...)

Just something different.

We spend so much time always trying for tack sharp and such that it's sometimes ok to let the "beast" out and at least try something different, eh?

Carry On...

I like it.


Another Something Different... the closest I got to flying in Portland (other than on Southwest's finest) was the Aerial Tram - a cable car! Here's a 3D pair taken near the top of the ride.

The FW 190 had electrically powered landing gear, even the gear locks were electrically activated. I don't think the 190 even had a hydraulic system. I could be wrong about that, but the gear was electrically activated.
