A day late and a dollar short: last night was the full moon and we had almost perfectly clear skies at sunset, too. But I was at the grocery store, kicking myself, when I spotted the full moon rising over the Taco Bell.

Tonight, Marcia and I made a sunset flight over Denver in the Remos, sans doors. But it was not nearly as nice as last night would have been: hazy, broken clouds, no moon to be seen. But you shoot what's in front of you, so here's my attempt at making lemonade out of some pretty sour lemons.


I really like the A2G of Denver Zim.

So real looking for being so small. Craftsmanship! The B-29 has a 13' wingspan, weighs 65# and has electric brakes, powered by four OS 91 engines. The Mustang has a seven foot wingspan! I caught some prop discs and even got a lightning bolt on the T-6, first for me on a little guy. Hope you enjoy the little guy's. The "war used" look on the Mustang and Mitchell are damn fine to me.

Very good work - I'm impressed !


Thank you very much misster.

I got one other nice shot @Yeovilton. This is it.



I'm going to the Scottish National Air Show @East Fortune on Saturday. The line up looks better than last year and the weather is likely to be better. Oh, did I say that? Well I know from last year that I might be shooting into a lot of things but the sun won't be one of them. So hopefully no repeat of the Yeovilton bleach out. Websee.

Headed over to Sulphur Springs to spec out a couple of new Legend Cubs. Seems like one should be on amphibs

More lemonade: a little later in the flight, there was a single, 30-second burst of sunlight on the downtown high-rises.

Jim, at this rate, pretty soon you're going to have to hire someone just to keep your fleet of aerial flivvers exercised and ready for you. Or just invite few of your aviation-minded friends to stop by...any volunteers?

Ah Steve...
Great shots on my ole stompin' grounds. The Queen City of the Plains used to be a nice town an' now it's just another big city. However, it still holds a soft spot in my remembryer. Thanks!!!

Thank You Sir.
It is a little intimidating around here what with the bar being so high. Still it beats the mediocrity we all have to put up with just about everywhere else.

Through a contact i have got a series of photos of the aftermath of the Asiana crash at San Francisco Ther are over 30 in total which I can send as a pdf to anyone interested offline but here is a taster - to my mind the miracle is that anyone survived!

On a totally different note: I was at a course in the City of York last week and took the opportunity to visit the National Railway Museum where, for a short period, there are the remaining six A4 class 4-6-2 Pacific locomotives. Brought together for the 75th anniversary of Mallard's still unbeaten world steam locomotive speed record of 125.88 mph (202.58 km/h). , it involved bringing Dwight D Eisenhower from Wisconsin and Dominion of Canada from Montreal. They will be returning across the Atlantic in March 2014!

Zim, those images are beautiful! Seems 30 seconds is plenty for the right shooter

The flying opportunities around HQ are certainly growing exponentially. As always, it was a treat to spend the day with our buddy Darin at Legend. There were a dozen Legends coming to life in the shop and our meeting boosted that a bit.

JR wants a Legend duplicate of his NE-1 for starters, and a Super Legend on Whipline amphibs is in the offing. We'll be headed to Central Florida to spend a weekend getting our seaplane ratings in the early fall. Fortunately all the flying activity will be increasing at the exact time other responsibilities will be winding down, which sounds like a wonderful plan to me.

Going down to Brown's for a little floatplane fun, Jim? On the same airfield, CFI Richard Johnson has an Air Cam on amphibious floats; might as well knock out the AMES rating while you're there. One of the Browns gave me my checkride in the Air Cam, which makes me that rare bird holding the AMES certificate, but not the ASES.

We are going to a place north of Orlando run by two SW pilots. They are using Legends, which I'd prefer to just an old Super Cub. It's closer to our lake down there too so we can stay at the lake house and use the lake for our training. The guys are in Leesburg and our place is on Lake Weir, so not a big hop and there looks to be lots of water in between.
