Not sure if I've mentioned my 1DX sensor problem here Having been cleaned repeatedly both by myself and by professionals (it is only 9 months old) It was sent to a Canon approved service centre who said that the sensor was the dirtiest they had ever seen and BTW there is a scratch on it!! They had never heard of the problems with lubricant/hinges that is all over the internet and caused Canon to recall two sets of serial numbers for a shutterbox replacement(!!) and cleaned and returned it (for which they charged me 210 - about $300)!! I got it back on Friday and took it to the Vulcan final show on Sunday. I attached my 70-200 2.8 at home and left it on all day. I took a sky test shot when I arrived - it seems to be clean On checking the images today, 68 shutter actuations later the sensor is covered in crap just like before it was cleaned - it has been taken back to the dealer and returned to Canon UK. Thank God I took my 7D2 to the airshow as my main camera!!

It is with real sadness to know that after this show season she will fly no longer. The old girls is closing down her engines and going into retirement as an exhibit.

Thank you Mighty Vulcan - I will miss you at the shows. You were always at the top of my wanted list. Happy memories.


Next weekend's grand tour (north on Saturday, south on Sunday; or vice versa) will be the last flights of XH558, though there is some talk of another photo mission on the 18th, which is apparently Martin Wither's last day licensed to fly exhibitions.

Niall, I'm sorry to hear of your 1DX troubles; but I'm pleased you got to see her fly at Old Warden.

Apart from the Vulcan I also went to see the first airshow of the rebuilt WW1 Bristol Scout (rebuilt from a magneto, a joystick and some other small part from the original aircraft which was flown from Mudros by the owner's grandfather They also got their two other Bristol WW1 aircraft into the air with it - the F2B Fighter and the Monoplane

Steve,

Folk who were up in the Skyvan on Saturday were rumoured to be paying $2700 per head to photograph the Vulcan.

Big and loud is perfect for an airshow, but I can't imagine what it's like working on the carrier deck.

Those Coast Guard crews are pretty amazing. Just listened to a short audio clip from the pilot of an HC-130 that had been looking for that missing freighter during the hurricane. Flying below the cloud ceiling of 1,000 feet, 100+ knot winds, <1/4-mile visibility, 40 ft wave heights. He called the turbulence "moderate", causing 150 ft deviations in altitude.

How do you fly in weather like that?

Question of the day, do we need a Batmobile for HQ?



Polaris is currently building a new factory roughly 9 as the crow flies miles away from me at on the west side of Greenbrier Road and north of the Target Distribution center just north of I-565. During the announcement for this, Polaris had one of theses three wheelers on display. I am assuming that Polaris will build these at the new factory.

Back at the Marriott winding up a 17 hour day. Dusk was perfect, cirrus drifted in on cue, mosquitos were in nice formations it all would have been perfect if the dang landscape lighting had come on There are a few things that I will not miss when I hang up these spurs!

Zim, JR dropped your 350 Head at UPS today, you'll have it Friday .




Tim, night and rain don't seem to dull your instincts much, very nice work!

A carrier deck is an amazing/terrifying place Erich, and I think it's the most dangerous place you can be.

Went to a small show just a few minutes from the house, and saw Brett Hunter for the first time. It amazes me how low he gets. At one point he couldn't have been more than 5-6 feet from the tops of the corn field on the other side of the runway...

This one is from the night portion on the Waynesville, Ohio show last month. Been working on the panning with the 300 and everything aligned for this one. Once they took off, you could see him coming for miles with all the nav lights on for the show.

That's a pretty penny for a unique opportunity. If my A2A with the Vulcan had not been scrubbed it would have been more like 300-500 per person.

An especially pretty penny considering the lack of control of time of day, background etc. but a rare opportunity for sure.

Basically the Skyvan tagged a long for a bit as it made it's way back to base following its final display.

Yup. He's cool. He does it over water, too, as I saw in Detroit earlier this year.

What do you suppose it would cost, and would it even be possible at this point, to get the Vulcan in the air for 30 minutes where the photographer controls the parameters?

Possible - not sure.
Cost - probably in excess of 10,000 or $15,000.
Shows were getting charged around 10k for a Vulcan display.

That's before you then factor in costs like getting a photoship etc.
