I like the second color image Tim, not at all over HDR'd, it simply pops.

So I am at this RC fly in and I am looking at this P-51 coming at me in the 600 and all of the sudden I just crack up! I was chuckling the rest of the day...........Now this is the perfect way for Mr. Wilson to do his 51, even if it is a RC version........look at the squadron markings on the side, perfection, T for Texas and JW for well, get it? Now he might not like the Old Boy on the side of the nose, but that could be changed to Good Ol' Boy! I tried to explain to the owner he had the helmet painted wrong, but he did not see my humor!

Ambri is an old airport, southern to the alps, pretty close to the Gotthard Pass (plus railway and highway tunnels). It used to be a Swiss Airforce base for decades, being home to De Haviland Vampires and Hawker Hunters. Once the Hunters were retired it was slowly abandoned. The airport currently only host a bunch of civil aircraft.

Up to the late nineties it used to host some cool airshows, the location made them special, since the landing strip is located inside a long alpine valley.

In 2013, thanks to a sponsor, a much smaller event was launched, this is not a full fledged airshow, but it gives an opportunity to see some cool historical planes and plenty of civil aircraft.
I missed the event in 2013, but I was there in 2014, very poor weather prevented planes from crossing the Alps, but I managed to snap a few shots and felt it was worth the trip.

That's funny Michael! We had more Mustang discussion over the weekend. I have this sneaking feeling that there is going to be a Mustang in our hangar regardless of my paranoia. Weebeesee. I could always plant Geraniums in it and set it out front.........

Had a day of aerials organized for today, the forecast was way off, 95 and humid like August in the bayou. The haze is horrible.

If the numbers hit right, I think the Mustangs I'd be chasing would be these three:

http://www.platinumfighters.com/#!p51dn5500s/c1bm7

http://www.platinumfighters.com/#!p-51d-n38227/c132k

The last would get sent straight to Midwest Aero Restorations to come out as stock as absolutely possible. Their latest Oshkosh winner just sold over the weekend it appears.

Of course Platinum also has a TA-4 available which would be hard to ignore. If money grew on trees....

As the annual Oktoberfest at Alliance is out for me for the next couple of years at least, I'm contemplating OSH in 2015.

How many here attend Oshkosh every year? Would there be enough of us to justify the cost of renting a house as a base of operations?

Yes, I've been running PS CC on a 27" iMac (loaded), with no trouble.

Yesterday I got a chance to drive Laguna Seca racetrack in the Tesla Model S. It was only a parade lap, but we got into a couple of the turns pretty hot and the Corkscrew was a kick in the pants. Once I get home in a couple of days I'll work up the dash cam video.

Meanwhile, in related news, some idiot in a beat-up ricer passed me on the freeway near Mojave today, pulled back into my lane, slowed down in front of me, and ran over a 4' chunk of big-rig tire tread, throwing it up in my face from a range of about 30'. Luckily the windshield didn't shatter, but I have a bunch of body damage up front, probably $6K worth, at least. *sad panda*

That's too bad, Steve. I hate when someone passes by and pulls back over just to hit the brakes and turn off. GRRRRR.

That's exactly what he did, Colin. I thought he was exiting to stop and exchange insurance info, but no: it was his exit, and he kept on going. With all the photographic resources at my command it never occured to me to snap his plates. Before he got away.
