If I remember correctly, the Japanese plane was a Kamakazi trainer.

Wow, I can remember that! http://www.nationalmuseum.af.mil/factsheets/factsheet.asp?id=526

I do hope so, only 4 more years till the 75th anniversary. I wound up having to miss quite a bit last year but thankful for the opportunity of what I did get to shoot.

That said, a "Gathering of Mitchell's" may keep that legacy living on.

Thanks Ripper! It has a green glow about it that I've been trying to capture, I guess with enough experimentation I'll get it eventually

Nice shot of the money bomb Laura, and yeah the 75th needs to have something happening.

Outstanding landscape Jay! But then, outstanding is what you do.

Might be seeing you sometime soon, just picked up the Arizona division of one of my California based clients. I told them that I'd be very excited about shooting their AZ assets ....... between October and April

This guy surprised me out of the reeds. I had a couple of seconds to aim, track and fire. Shot one frame. The 500 did a pretty good job, but I began wondering how much better the series II might have performed. I think I'm going to go series II on the 300, and 500 here pretty quick. I'll let you know before I put my series I's on buy and sell, in case anyone might be interested.

Paying my weekly visit to the thread. Looks like I have at least another 6 weeks of commuting to & from London. I'm not even trying to keep pace with what's going on.

After work I'm trying to make the most of the opportunity of being in London and do the tourist stuff. Last Thursday I visited the Shard.

I also picked up a Fuji X100s. What a great little camera. I've only used it to shoot jpegs so far, but the jpegs are nice straight out of the camera.

Don't remember if I mentioned it, but I had one of my OWC RAID Array's go toes up about a month ago. 16TB capacity. This same unit had difficulty a year ago as well and they replaced a board or something. They still have it and are befuddled by whatever has taken place, which, in turn, befuddles me. Yesterday they emailed me to tell me they were still dinking with it, but it's still not right. A good customer service move would have been to send me a new unit several weeks ago, but there's no sign of that, even now.

I started thinking about it last night, OWC doesn't make a Thunderbolt interface array yet which kind of makes me scratch my head. Thunderbolt will spoil you in a hurry, and the bigger the files and folders, the more spoiled you become. I went to B&H and ordered my sixth Drobo 5D, bringing my Drobo storage capacity up to 120TB. I'm thinking I'll just standardize my storage with Drobo units. They have been pretty much trouble free and set up correctly, offer great protection and speedy transfer back and forth. Whatever growing pains Drobo went through sometime back, seem to be cleared up. Now I wish someone would come out with a five or six TB drive

Sometimes, I come upon a story and wonder how I never heard about it before. This is one such; a Russian lady pilot: http://www.honoraryunsubscribe.com/nadezhda_popova.html

Thanks Lady Jo. A good read and a timely reminder of how easy my life is now thanks to all those who fought against the Nazis.
