On Friday afternoon, during the Gold heat race, I think I started to smell camera shutters smoking every time these two came by.

Forgot to add, how much difference can a prop make? PM's new props = 64mph gain over 2011.

Don't know what is going on with EAA, kind of lost interest when Bonnie and JK left. What I do know is that they hired Paul Bowen and Russ Munson to handle the photography after they canned the Photo/Video Group. Paul and Russ are both talents of note. Two things I knew were likely to happen, it would be impossible for those two guys to handle everything that needed to be done during the event, and even more importantly, it would be a cluster of major proportion and they are both too experienced (read older) and would have zero interest in putting up with the rampant disorganization.

I think what you are seeing is more than likely overflow "volunteer" photography because the good shooters were too covered up to shoot everything, or just too frustrated to give a flip anymore. EAA is getting exactly what it asked for. For the first time since 1970 when Tom Poberezny and I became friends, I am thinking about letting my membership lapse. I may or may not bring a 25 in for assignments in 2013, but I already have all the connections, I need the current EAA like a fish needs a bicycle. They have completely forgotten their roots, Hightower/McClellan? You've got to be kidding me! The fact that they would ever consider such a team to run EAA kind of says it all.

Al, thanks for putting me in the same league with the others you named. Just so you know, the dream-like auto stuff you've been posting knocks my socks off. Can't wait to see what you'll do with the 1D4.

From what Ive seen , theres no reason your work shouldnt be on the list Zimm...great stuff....

Funny on this thread everyone says ,...Ahh shuicks taint nothin mine aint that good,....Love when we got no big egos.....What a thread, what a Team...

Thnks very much for your comment on my "Dream shots",....my 7D will now become my Rigg camera ...Hoping to get a few of these over Summer got some neat ideas to try just need some exciting cars to get organised....

Been chasing the 1D4 mainly for killer AF .......& some of the occaissional 10FPS..

Finding the 7D good but occaissionally the AF drops the ball,

Now Ive bitten the bullet & upgraded the glass dept , in one week Ive found a great deal ona Pre loved Canon 70-200 2.8IS MkII & a 300f2.8 IS,...maybe the AF will a little better anyway...
Never rains then it pours....
Been agonising for some time better fast L glass,... or 1D4.....I had decided Glass..

The yesterday got wind of a pre loved 1D4 in pretty good condition for a good price,....couldnt help my self...

Ah well ,...I could be under a bus tomorrow .....lol

Good night I need my Beauty sleep.....

Congratulations Al, you'll love it and it will become second nature to you in no time at all. Enough of us have, or have had 1D4's so you can get your tutorial right here at home. Glad you're enjoying our little conversation, we sure enjoy you being a part of it! Looking forward to seeing more great imagery from your new stuff.

Laura, when I was an engine mechanic @ Norton AFB, CA, I worked on 0177 many times. 1970-1972, just before she made that historic flight!

Looking for some help.

Someone I know owns their own Pitts, and next year she will be displaying it.
The aircraft is fitted with a smoke system that burns smoke oil.
She wants to dye the smoke to have it pump out red smoke.
Any advice beyond my suggestion of adding food colouring.
