The Lancaster landing at Fairford Saturday, this is after after the first touchdown. Just a bit of a bounce!

I'd like to welcome a budding talent to the list by publishing her first air-to-air, this shot of papa Rodolfo flying with fellow-MA2Aer David Russell in the 2-32 over the foothills west of Boulder, at 12,500'.

Anya and I chased Rodolfo and David in the Remos (with the doors off, of course!) and tucked into a thermal outside and above them, at 12,500'. I handed Anya my D-800 and with two sentences of instruction, this is what she squeezed off.

Everyone, please welcome Anya Paiz.



Nice work Anya and Steve.. That is the best that 58 zulu has ever looked.

Never a dull day here....flying with the Paiz clan this afternoon, dinner with an Olympic gold medal winning gymnast (1956) tonight and I might have a photo or two of Rodolfo from inside the plane to post a bit later too. What a fun day!

You were obviously at the western end of the runway, we were to the east, in the Pimm's enclosure.

Welcome Anya! What fun! The things that would never have happened had it not been for the kind and generous people that make up this family.

Zim! Thanks for the technical advice. I'm headed out the door, but will digest it all this evening.

Havn't had time to shoot anything decent yet....still running around getting the Registration ready....& its still LHD....


Sharp!
What's wrong with LHD?
Do you get to keep the California plates? They just look right on a car like that...


Nothing wrong with LHD, in Aussie all cars are RHD, LHD just presents a few interesting things, no drive through wthout a passenger for one...
The main one is overtaking trucks on secondary roads,....you definately need a passenger for lookout duties,....
As for the Californian plates, its not allowed,...it will get either full rego with a set of my personal AA plates or historic club roeg , with "Club plates" they are maroon with 6 numbers ,,..no choices...
Lots of little things to get right before its the way I want it.

@ Tim, yep its a clone. I just dont like the look of the overriders on the bumpers.

Steve's advice is best Al. JUst use your phone. It's a straight shot out of the north DFW gate to HQ. I'll send you a GoogleE map of it, but you won't have any trouble at all.

Beautiful car Buddy, enjoy! That's back when men were men and cars were really cars. Only a couple of car manufacturers have noticed that if they bring something to market with todays technology and yesterday's nostalgia, they sell all they can make.

I might have my (non-working) ride in October when you come. Think "Bond.....James Bond"


DBS5 Jim ??

We had a bit of weather coming through, so I set my 5DmkII and 24-105 on a tripod and set the camera at 15" @ f/8 on an intervalometer set at 17 seconds. This was the prize for my efforts

I never even thought of the tablet/Smart Phone,...m trying to think of so many things at the moment plus the car,...Im struggling.
I'll be bringing my Samsung tablet so I can use that...holding & driving might be fun...

I love muscle cars, in Aussie in 73/74/75 we had a two door Ford Falcon, it was basically based on a Mustang/Ford floor pan,
It looked similar to a Torino,..but much slimmer n nicer,...came with 351 Clevo, 4 wheel discs,..etc...a real rocket,...way expensive now for one..I'll see if I can find an image of one, they're just beautiful.

I cant believe the amount of parts available for 67/68/69 camaros,...even a complete new shell....

a DB5 Jim ??..or a DBS ??

I actually like the bigger engine. All the Z/28's came with from 67-69 was the 302. You had to wind the crap out of that thing to get it to go. It would fly, but very hard on the valve train. If I ever had the spare money I'd find one and drop the 572 Chevy crate motor in it. I think I'll just keep playing with my 2010 for now though.

Jim,

I'm more of a car guy than an airplane guy - does this mean you have an Aston Martin DB5 tucked away somewhere? Drool......

Mark


Bond did drive a Toyota in one movie...








Yep & these are even rarer than DB5's....lol

I'm going with the Quantum of Solace" version. But the roadster is pretty beautiful, just too dang hot in Texas.



DBS is the P51 of the road....
Women want them,
men fear them..
Fotogs love them...
My good friend David Brabham had the pleasure of developing the sportcar version..racing one a few years ago, ran a few races in it including LeMans I believe..

Georgous....

Al, the hotel I stayed at last year is:

Hampton Inn & Suites
N. Ft. Worth-Alliance Airport

13600 North Freeway
Fort Worth, TX
United States, 76177
Tel: 1 817-439-0400
Fax: 1 817-439-1158

Rental car from Budget, and they had a GPS unit for rent. I also had an iPhone, but the GPS worked better, for me and my adventures through Dallas

You'll probably want to make the reservation now, there was also an antique car show of some sort in town that weekend, too.

Mine got a 330hp 350Ci Crate motor,...im looking at stroking it to 383 with Alloy heads n a little bit bigger cam,....that'll be around 400/430hp....and heaps of torque...

Hope you going to make MA2A reunion Tim,...cars, planes, n Cameras......cant wait...

Congratulations, Anya. This is my dad's gear that I took my first aircraft photo with, and got me hooked on photography. Sadly, he can't find the photo I took, but he probably still has it somewhere. I now have that camera, flash, and lens here.
