Not to worry, Tim. The battery pack in any EV can run the climate control and all accessories for days or weeks. Moving several thousand pounds down the road absolutely swamps all other battery loads. EVs do very well in stop and go traffic, because stopping returns energy to the batteries and the motor doesn't use any energy when the car isn't moving. Their big advantage over hybrids is simplicity of the drivetrain and related control systems, which translates into lower maintenance costs over the life of the vehicle. EVs simply have way fewer moving parts.

Anyone who lives close to a Tesla store owes it to themselves to schedule a test drive. It's way better than any amusement park ride and will open your eyes to the possibilities. Or you could pay me a visit and I'll let you drive mine.

I really love how you captured the shear power of this "heavy" with the jello air and jet wash - excellent

Much appreciated Jeff...

Feel free to help with the ID but I think this is the "smallest" model of Challenger just cracking the gear on takeoff from Tucson this morning...

Great work Y'All! The wx just about shut me out today, so i spent the day driving all over The Eagle Ford Play getting familiar with my projects. Instinct had me set up at dusk at one location just in case I caught a break. Instinct is good................

BTW, no trick filter, just the iris on the Nikon 24 PCE.

Prior to today's visit to KTUS, I had a chance to walk around downtown Tucson for a bit on Monday afternoon...

You might have seen the recent photos of the Mosquito in NZ, in formation with a Vampire. Here's some video from inside the Mozzie cockpit on that flight:



Thanks for posting it looks from the video that its just in a very slow flight around Auckland, it was amazing seeing it from the airfield just how fast the mosquito this plane actually is.

Dang .. Delta's gonna want that one !!


I think the pilot's gonna want that one! You don't often see their faces so nicely lit up inside the cockpits of those things.

Friend Doug took me for a flight yesterday, we ran up to Georgetown for some cheaper-than-San Marcos gas, then bounced off Taylor and back south over the F1 track. The track is _really_ close to the end of 35R at Austin Bergstrom, so we spoke nicely to the controllers there and they let us do a quick orbit there while the Southwest jets were coming in around us! Not that we were in the way, but it would be very easy to _get_ in the way...

Anyway, here's a couple of aerial views of the circuit. We stayed at the hairpin end; if we had gone too far over to the pit straight, we could have been a bit close to Bergstrom.

If you aint seen F1 in the flesh,....well prepared to be blown awy by the sheer breaking & acceleration of these things, I know you guys have IndyCars, but these things are in another league....
Take good ear defenders,...with no Turbos to muffel em they literally scream....

Lookin for ward to someones hots....typical F1 thought they wanna put chain link fences between the crowd & the cars,...unless you can sneak a 500f4 intot he grandstands....

Beautiful shot, sir. If it all goes well, my son - who is Ultrarunner here on FM - should be piloting one of these puppies in the short term. I can remember when he was sitting in the left seat of Cherokee 140 on 3 pillows with wooden blocks taped to the rudder pedals flying his old man around . Time flies, eh

thanks for the pic

Hm, good point about the ear protection; thanks.
We will see what I can take in... they say they allow personal camera equipment, maybe I can get my 400mm in there and perch at the top of the hill by the hairpin... I'm thinking on Friday I might just take my little camera and see what everyone else is packing!

Sunny Southwest Departure


I guess sunshades cost extra on a B737
