I am new to the forum and I absolutely love all of the airplane photos

I do not have any photos to post at this time but hopefully will soon as I live on an Air Force base

Is anyone on this thread a builder? My husband is building a Thorp T-18 and I am going to be the designated aerial photographer....someday.... I should have some great shots when our regional fly-in rolls around this spring.

Welcome J. Crawford,

I don't know if any of our contributors are builders, but I've done my share. My projects include a couple of Cub restorations, two Pitts biplanes, a Skybolt and the Firebolt/Skybolt that I've been flying for about 15 years.

We look forward to seeing images from your backyard soon.

Thanks for the welcome!

I wish the images would be coming from the backyard but currently we are still working in the basement. Soon I'll have an entire series called Clikos

I love the Cub...its a beautiful airplane. I love to shoot the ones that come to our local fly-ins.

Outdated, retired and almost extinct I still get excited at seeing a Phantom. What a bada$$ Warbird. If there's an F-4 in it, it's never a bad picture. Great shot's back there of Chuck Hall's "Six Shooter" with the F-16. Can you believe I didn't follow thru on an offer for a ride in that machine? Duh!!

This was one of my favourite threads from last year.

Here are a few more of my 'vintage' efforts from the Imperial War Musuem Duxford 'Flying Legends' show last year.

~Happy New Year to All ~

Glad this thread is going again. It was a shame to loose the other one. Here is my early contibution from last years Air Show at Kingsley Air Force Base in Klamath Fall's Oregon. Actually called Sentry Eagle.

Was lucky enough to get a ride in a KC-135 and refuel F-15's and F-16's. More on the website.

Ditto on the Phantom. Bryan did accept a ride with Sean Tucker when he was a controller out in California. Much to his credit, he returned with his lunch where it was when they took off! I'm impressed!

I understand and appreciate the sentiment of shot #6, but the execution feels over the top somehow... But that's just me I guess.

On a technical note: Maybe try to bring out some of the blue in the flag?

Thanks Jim, Glad to be back and in the thread again.

Your work and pictures are amazing and your one lucky guy. I'm sure you created some of that luck when you were younger building your career.

I got that guard to pose with an F15 in the background but the shot didn't quite turn out the way I wanted so I went with that. I like it but still seems like it needs more or less.

The work and pix's from everyone else is amazing as well and look forward to reading and seeing it all.

~Bill~
