I knew all that Jan-Arie, I was wondering what that leaves for me with a last name Swindle?

Definition of SWINDLE

intransitive verb
: to obtain money or property by fraud or deceit

Taking home the tired fans...the fun way!

"Dutch Boy" makes paint! Right?

FWIW, I like the blended version of Brat as well. Nicely crafted J-A!

It'd be fun to get together at an event for sure, although its not really like an airshow where you meet up and sit still most of the day shooting. It would get quite repetivive to bring home 1000 pics from the same seat! Good news is the V8 Supercars and MotoGP tickets are half the price of F1, and if we could score some media access even better.


From my understanding of it MotoGP is in among the hardest professional racing to get media access to. But if Jim is going anything is possible right

I am hoping to make the trip down for MotoGP in April, although the dates still aren't on the MotoGP calendar yet, it is rumored to be either the 14th or 21st.



Unless you contribute to a high profile magazine or are on first name basis with Mr Bernard Eccolstone....forget F1 accreditation.....rarer than rocking horse manure.....

Love your thinking though.... Everything in F1 is controlled with an iron fist & Bernie even in his 70's sees hears n knows all....

Jim, as for your getting accredited to TOA well done,....Hope you can squeeze out F1 creds as Bernie holds them with a steel grip...man you must be connected..!!

Thanks Chris. Though I enjoyed the show Saturday, I didn't get anything close to a keeper. As you know that is a scary show to schedule weather wise.

Jim, worry ye not about hotel rooms, we have two spare rooms here, you are welcome to one of those, and the other is there for any more MA2A folks that need it. Draw the short straw and we can probably put someone on a sofa bed too.

I have got to say that the transport in and out of the circuit was brilliant. We hardly waited any time at all for the shuttle bus. It is about 30-40 minutes from our house to expo centre where the buses are, and about 20-25 minutes on the bus. This assumes they make the same arrangement for the races in the spring, of course. Alan heard they hired 530 buses for this event!

J-A, I love that Mustang shot, very atmospheric.

I would love to know how much those RV pitches are. Mind you, you'd better have a roof capable of supporting a few folks in order to see over the fence, and you're shooting into the sun. Gaah!

Thats only where we congregate and drink beer when nothing is happening!

How was the main event? What a great race...i'm glad Vettel didnt lock it up - will make next weeks race that much more exciting.

Sometimes it all comes together. World's only Griffon powered Mustang, sunrise, the sodium lights actually giving a little glint off the plane, and the taxi lights lit up.

Dear Jo,

That's very kind of you! Thank you. Let's see how things shape up as we get closer. I absolutely could bring the RV down, didn't even think of that, but I would guess those slips are made out of unobtainium and priced accordingly.

So, Y'all give me your impression of accessibility? Can we walk the course and get those head on hero shots we love so much in aviation? Do you even need credentials for that? I'm being led to believe that once the introduction is made, I'll be golden. You never know with that kind of thing though, sometimes folks over estimate their clout, but I appreciate it regardless and we'll see. Kind of exciting to be thinking about shooting something completely different. More exciting to be thinking about another venue to join up with you all for fun!
