Well we all know the airshow season was a bust this year but for those in south east MASS who are jonesing for a small fix this may be enough to scratch that itch for now.......... just came across this from Mike Goulian.

Sounds like a nice intimate affair for those who wish to crane their necks this summer.....

Good Morning Everyone!

I have no idea how this all might unfold, but it's fun to think about. We'll see. As usual, God's in complete control and His plans are always bigger and different from mine. I'm very content to stand with my hands in my pockets until He directs my path re: all of this. "Weebeesee!"

One thing that I can tell you is, one's thought processes change. For the past 32 years my default thought process has been, "how does this or that create business opportunities?" Everything I shoot, people that I am introduced to, situations that arise, I've made a habit out of thinking about how they relate to growing my business. Those are good habits and they have served me well, but for the moment, it's kind of nice to fly over a new construction project and not immediately default to "shoot it, process it, figure out who they are, how to contact them, do they already have a photographer? If so, how do I convince them that they aren't all that excited about their current supplier of imagery? That's the kind of thought process one must have, in any line of work, but especially the uber competitive field of commercial photography, to keep the pipeline full. It takes a lot of time and energy, might be kind of nice to ratchet that back just a bit and "breathe".

Well Jim, if you have to stop and take a breath, that photo looks like a great location to 'stop and smell the roses' so to speak.

Well Hiya Liz!

Nice opening salvo!

Lurking for three years and then hits us with that, talk about good things come to those who wait.

Edit TOPP: Nothing like knowing a local Congressman is flying in an airshow

Thanks! I might actually try for that. And it's a Saturday, so no Cape traffic driving home!

Hi Eddie Ray,

A bucholic scene for sure. We had a great day together. I can 't begin to tell you how much I enjoy spending time with you all. Even a simple shoot and a breakfast at Mickey D's is a pleasure when it's with one of you. I look forward to more of it

From the Gathering of Eagles airshow at Lost Nation airport in Ohio on Sunday. The proceeds of the show went to helping fund the B-29 Doc restoration to flight worthy status. The B-17 Sentimental Journey, B-25s Panchito and Yankee Warrior were fairly busy doing ride flights. Unfortunately, Journey didn't do a photo pass. She did however do a number of bomb runs on the airfield.

Does anyone know where this Spit is based. We have a partner whose Dad flew it in WWII and we want to find it, and or find one and restore it in his Dad's scheme. I know the brain trust can find it. It's in the UK I believe.........

Looks like the BBMF LF.IXc MK356, it now wears a silver paint job and the designation UF-Q.

Tears come to my eyes when I see Spitfires. They remind me so much of the Battle of Britain. I am so, so grateful to those young pilots who went in against the odds and kept my country free of the tyranny of nazis.

Thank you Jan-Arie
