Hey Glenn, my robotics guys from TI are taking this v3.0 rig seriously. I went to HQ this morning to reorganize my gear for the rest of the week's assignments and they were busily working on a full scale wooden mock up! These guys are wizards, scary bright and can do math way beyond my third grade level ....... A week from today actual fabrication begins. I have a good friend who flies Triple 7's internationally for AA, he moonlights as the most incredible Heliarc artist you have ever seen, every weld looks like a perfect stack of dimes. I talked with him today and he said to plan on anodizing the rig instead of painting it, because it's going to be a work of art. Think I'll anodize it red!

Whoops! TOPP....................

Cool, there's a number of times you can see how much he's throwing that yoke around. Do you video the joins/rejoins with the military guys? There's something special about seeing someone smoothly close in along the ideal line and stop at just the right place.

Hey Erich: we do but they dont usualy join up so aggressively from out on the wing. he was pretty good!

I may never have to leave my city limits to do business again. Just did a groundbreaking for a $100M development five minutes from my front door. Based upon the people I met with, the next 24 months are going to be rockin' ! And, three more announcements coming that should dovetail nicely into this project.

There is also something scary about watching someone do that and wondering if they are going to misjudge. Glenn knows whereof I speak. You are looking through the camera, the subject is zipping in on a diagonal to join with you, or slide underneath. There are moments that you hold your breath because a slight miscalculation and it's raining aluminum and fire.

Glenn, remember the Kate sliding underneath us that morning? From our vantage point it looked like about 24" from the prop tip to the bottom of our fuselage. Did we ever look at that clip? I'll go find it.

Registration confirmed for June 9th Behind The Scenes tour. Looks like I may pack some manual focus lenses to lighten the bag a little. The last time I had scheduled a trip there was five years ago, but things changed drastically and I had to cancel.

Some of the restrictions and info below if anyone else is considering a trip this year, they do require your drivers license number (or passport) when registering:

--------------------

Laura, they didn't say anything about my large camera backpack when i did the tour. I even had my tripod strapped to the side. Then again it was 5 years ago, so how strict they are now I don't know.

Believe me, I know how quickly they can get scary. Flew enough scary ones myself when I was getting my FAST wingman qualification. :-) That's why I asked about the military guys - and gals- doing the rejoins. I know all the variables, so may be able to appreciate them even more when done right. When it clicks it's like a work of art.

Erich, For me, it's more the heat factor than security. Heat and I don't get along. Five years ago, they didn't have the metal detectors and bag check into the museum, either. You just walked in.
