Nice Phantom J-A. I remember visiting my relatives in Germany as a kid in the 70s and seeing the Phantoms and Starfighters doing low level supersonic runs, and occasionally hearing about their interactions with high tension wires .

Amazing how long a service life they've actually had

Great stuff, J-A!

Laura, how cool you got to spend some time with Harry and hear his stories.

I've been busy singing with Sound of the Rockies in Toronto. We won our sixth consecutive bronze medal in yesterdays's chorus contest: so great to perform for 8000 barbershop fans and always gratifying to bring home the hardware.

As icing on the cake, I'm joining a group of barbershoppers from several states and provinces to sing the national anthems at today's Blue Jays game. Should be a hoot and a half!

Ya know, I own a parachute that I never plan to pull the cord on....the only time it ever opens is for its 180 day repacks..and I like it that way!

Oops, TOP: one of our tow planes and its pilot hard at work...







That airplane is very close to my heart: it's a 1957 Super Cub that I bought from a guy in Virginia in 1978, and flew home to Colorado (it took me an extra three or four days to get there, between losing a magneto on the first leg and being grounded in Ottumwa by weather). We flew the airplane for a season and then spent the winter completely rebuilding the airframe and re-engining it with an 0-360: at Colorado's altitude the 180hp is a must for towing gliders. In 1980, it served as the towplane for an expedition in which a group of us flew four gliders from Mexico to Canada along the spine of the Continental Divide: what great memories!

It's still earning its keep in the commercial glider operation where David sometimes lends a hand, the direct descendant of the business I started with two other people in 1977.

Lately I've become more a browser of the thread than a contributor.
That's likely to continue for the next month or so as I'm now having to take the orange taxi to get to & from work every Monday & Friday.

I grew up in Germany near the iron fence - those jets rattled our windows all the time, day and night, so much that we got totally used to sonic booms like it was part of the weather.

Even more common noise was Bell UH-1D's coming in with their rotor clapping, all Apocalypse Now style, right over the top of our houses. In 1983 I was in some of those as a German paratrooper, flying down the Fulda Gap a few times so low you had your feet almost touch the trees as you sat in the open doors ready to get out. Cold war was a crazy time - we all thought we'd be dead in minutes anyway, with all those nukes pointed at us.

Thanks, had to develop an on the spot technique to manage to grab the shot of him. "Knowing your subject" played a huge role

Laura, perhaps his reasoning is he falls with his back towards the ground photographing upwards towards the subject to capture their faces? In that case the flag would be positioned in the correct orientation, field forward.

By the way, I know there are guidelines for patches worn by the military and certain civilian organizations (police/fire/etc.) on a uniform. I have not found anything about applying decals. Our company placed a flag decal in the similar orientation on a trailer we built. I thought it was wrong, but could not substantiate my claim so I kept quiet. Do you have more information I could research? I looked in Title 4 and military FAQs with no luck.

I believe this will change a pilots perspective on size.

Wrei, I've got these to go by. Field of stars(canton) should always be "leading the charge" or going first, stripes to the rear.
