That pano shot was using 1/60, so I was pushing a bit to see how slow I could go hand holding, and fov was 364mm. This was at 1/80:







This one at 1/30, (best of 3 shots), and he wasn't moving very fast at all; fov was 135mm:

John you're right, that is a great shot of a beautiful aircraft. He was having some difficulty with the engine or prop when he left AirVenture, but thought he could nurse it home for diagnosis and repair. That airframe is just a work of art, I would have loved an opportunity to spend a couple of days with it on the ground and in the air.

Always sad, but unfortunately taking unnecessary risks is why there are so few "Old bold pilots"

Here is my latest contribution taken at my buddies place just north of Terrell Tx a few days ago while I was home for the holidays. Its hard to beat a 1946 Cub but the sweet little girl in the background sure gives it a go.

This has been one of the most enjoyable threads going. I have learned some much & been awed so many times by the wonderful images. Thank you Jim and all the others who made the first Air to Air so special.

So let me make my small contribution. This B17 is part of the Wings of Freedom tour and was taken 1 1/2 years ago outside Chicago.

Some of the other images from that day are over at Hosting,

Happy New Year to everyone.

I'm sure you realize that your photos here were taken one year and one day before Jim Wright lost his life his H-1. Aviation history is filled with ironies.


When I looked at the date of my photos, I knew they were very close to one year before the accident, but I didnít know exactly. Here is another one from the first flight to a fly-in for the Hughes Air Racer.

It's no mustang, and the lighting sucked, but it's one of my rare opportunities to get some air to air shots...

You know, if we could call this thread "Mustangs and Mooney's" I'd be in heaven.

Hi Guys,

Great posts, all! I'm scrambling a bit so my participation has been a little sparse, but you all have picked up the torch in fine fashion. Yesterday I had the privilege of taking our Buddy Bryan Martin's darling niece for her first small airplane ride. She got the full treatment, in a small airplane with all the doors and windows open. Bryan and Butch were in hot pursuit in Butch's Cub. Temps were in the 50's here in North Texas so it was a bit nippy in the Cub. I kept asking Jennifer if she was cold, her response was, My teeth are the only thing cold, because I can't stop smiling!" Bryan had frost on that big handlebar mustache of his!!

A month or so ago I was flying over to Dobransky International and lo and behold "The Great One" himself was up and tucked up close to me. The background isn't great, but I just couldn't resist firing off a couple of shots.

DBI has several new acquisitions, Joe's been on a buying spree! He picked up a great Cessna 185 in Northern Wisconsin a few weeks ago, and as much as he likes the big Cessna, it just doesn't fill his need for something that will give him chronic neck and back pain. Sooooo, he's in the process of getting his new Staudacher home. This is a fire breathing 330 horse monoplane (ala Extra 300) that was meticulously built by our Buddy Geryl, who plys the pages FM and is a great shooter in his own right. Anyway, I think this thing has like a 92 G spar, so I look for Joe and Geryl to be on regular doses of Advil from now on. Photos to follow.
