Thanks, Dan and Mark. I asked that same question before and was given the full technical details, Mark, but all I remember is that the panel hides some sensors that were added after the Vulcan was built and already in service. It might have something to do with the Blue Steel (?) missile program.

Aha, I found the FB comment from Kevin Jackson I was looking for:

'After a Google I found this from a Vulcan engineer: "It is called the counter poise panel, it was fitted on aircraft that carried the Blue Steel missile, it was to drop some of the aerials below the missile to reduce interferance." The panel remained but the aerials and ECM fit were removed.'

I'm jealous! I used to bid STN every month and was there for all the airshows at Duxford. I miss it everyday

Steve, love that Vulcan takeoff with all the jello.

Wow, at 456kt/min he's doing better than twice orbital speed. That's one heck of a tailwind!

If we're being literal...

A knot is 1 nautical mile per hour (6000 ft/hr), so he's actually accelerating at 456 nautical miles per hour-minute, meaning 456 nautical miles per hour of increase in speed every minute.

456 knots (nm/hr) is 760 ft/sec. Adding that every minute means adding 12.6666 ft/sec of speed every second, which is his actual acceleration: 12.6666 ft/sec2. Given that standard gravity is 32.174 ft/sec2, he's accelerating at 0.394g.

Impressive. However, I'm going to miss my friend... from a standing start, it would only take him 46 minutes, 20 seconds to reach escape velocity (10.735 km/sec going westward), so by now he's gotta be well outside the atmosphere and headed out at a rapid clip.

Rodolfo, Steve, and Jo, thanks for your thoughts on the M4/3 systems, it helped me make up my mind. I'm going to give the E-M1 and the Zuiko Pro lenses a try. The 300mm f/4 m4/3 lens availability later this year should make an impressive combination. Add the 1.4x and you end up with an 840mm f5.6 equivalency in light weight. Definitely not switching from Nikon, just adding a lighter weight option.

Yes, I'm doing the same and I think you'll be happy with it. I am going to sell my 500, my D800, and my D800e, and keep one D810 body with my other lenses. That'll be my "best quality" rig and I'll rent a 500/600 when I need it, but my work/personal life requires smaller kit if I ever hope to have a camera consistently with me, and the Oly kit seems to be doing a much better job of that already.

I apologize for the error. However, the recalculation is left for the user to perform at his or her discretion.

Here's another image from Ephesus, setting up for an evening concert at the Celsus Library in Ephesus. Some high-ISO testing of the E-M1 coming up.

Introduction to last night's classical concert in Ephesus. Quick and easy Lightroom processing due to the high ISO... mostly a hardware test shot to see what the camera's capable of.

Overall, I'm quite pleased with the results, considering the backlighting and mixed lights plus the fact that it's ISO 25600 on a smaller sensor. The image is extremely grainy, but if I had to I could use the full-size version (probably as B&W). The web-size version (aka the "family and friends" version) is entirely usable.

That's great Jim, congratulations! Your post reminded me that I had forgotten to go back and click on the link you posted a couple of days ago. Very exciting.

Thanks Mark! The website is more or less a place holder. We are having a site designed but the IRS requires a minimal web presence for approval. JR tossed that together at 4 am Dubai time just so we had something. Although rumor has it that applications from Texans of the Conservative persuasion just fly right through the process...................................................................................................................fairness and equality ya know.
