There have been some incredible photographs posted, and I'm sure there are still more to come this year ...........

Just wondering if anybody has been stashin' a couple away to bring back in December as their favorites of 2012 ........

Wow, that is awesome! I'm curious if you also had the 38 do some higher speed passes by the B-25 so you could get some shots with the flaps up.

A ball turret from the Memphis Belle. I can not even begin to imagine what it was like to go into combat strapped into one of these.

the visor of the helmet isn't heating...causing some issues, but doesn't look like they'll scrub for it. They've already broken all the pre-existing records, so if they were going to do anything I think they would have called it by now.

To have Joe Kittinger on the crew was a good choice. He has always been on my list of someone I"d like to shake hands with'
Watched the whole thing, in real time, and I can say I would of been a lot slower making that first step.. What a project..

If he had bottled it, could he have stayed with the balloon and ridden it down? Was that an option?
Glad he didn't though! Awesome jump.

Yes, the balloon had a safety system to allow the balloon to be cut away and emergency chutes deployed including crumple zones for landing, that being said, it still would not have been a pleasant landing. The only issue he reported was that his visor was fogging up through the colder air at around 70'000 ft, but as he descended that went away.

Anyone else head up to Axalp this year?

Wednesday show was cancelled due to weather. Thursday was nice until clouds rolled in 30 minutes before the show. I used a 400mm F/5.6 on a 1D3. Sorry for the frozen blades on the super puma. Low shutterspeeds isn't my thing.

Spot the Saab Grippen F demonstrator which was in the country for further evaluation.
