Thanks Paul. Now to get that humidity to cooperate for a cone

Rusty, love that shot of the dirty roll.

Steve, mono for me if going for the gloominess of winter.

Jim, it depends on the venue on whether or not badged access gets you the goods. I know with the shots I did during shuttle missions, without badging you really had to work to get good stuff. Nothing beats up close though. With airshows, I can see your point having been on both sides of the rope.

Very nice race coverage Jo! Race 13 and I have an appointment in the air in the next few days. James is a wizard with those aircraft and has become the Berkut go to guy.

TEASER ALERT - Yesterday, I covered the official Marine Corps F-35B basing and re-designation ceremony in Yuma for Southwest Aviation Review (SoAR). I will be writing an article and providing images for publication in the week following Thanksgiving. It was a historic ceremony wherein VMFA-121, formerly an F/A-18 Hornet squadron, re-designated as the Corps' first operational F-35 squadron. It was an honor to be there. I'll provide a link to the article and images when complete.

Before we are on the back side of it, I'd like to take this opportunity to wish you all a wonderful, peace filled Thanksgiving. We celebrate it today so Gracie can be with us. I'm thankful for all of you.

Gonna take some time to get used to the lines of that aircraft. Might be functional, but good lookin' would be a stretch.

You have a good point Brian. Stuff like the shuttle missions require credentials to get the best imagery for sure. I guess in most cases, it never hurts to have a badge hanging around your neck. The options are a little wider.

Jim,
fair point, but it sure as heck is a lot easier on the eyes than the concept that Boeing produced for the competition...

And a happy thanksgiving to you as well. And thank you for having pulled us all together here.

@Jo: Your images from the Rocket 100 are just wonderful.

Thanks Jim and Bill for the kind comments. Attending a formal Marine Corps ceremony like this was a very special privilege for me. I was honored to be in the presence of such great Americans who serve our country so faithfully.

Lastly, let me add my wishes for all to have a safe and wonderful Thanksgiving.

I actually kinda like the look of the F-35. It's ugly, but in sort of a beautiful way...
