Always had a soft spot for the 141's, nicely done Laura. Unique view on the 17 with an engine off, don't see that every day for sure.

Jay, if things hold Glenn will be getting a "few" more in a day or so TXRotorA2A?

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.



How do the Red Arrows generate their colored smoke?

Here's one of those "betwixt and between" shots with which I always seem to struggle...

Full Frame 2:3


4:5 Crop emphasizing pilot and pax


I like them both but I think each tells a slightly different story...

Opinions?

Jay,

Diesel mixed with dye. It's then injected into hot exhaust.
The system in a piston is different from a jet.

Personally liking the Full Frame shot best of the two, the crop feels a bit too tight in. This might also be only cause I get to see the full one too

This link suggests there isn't safe way to color the smoke in a piston aircraft:

Julie Clark has red and blue smoke, but from smoke canisters - may be an option if she doesnt have to turn it off and on!

15 more Apaches destined for Georgetown tomorrow if anybody is in the area!

Maybe not so photography related, but I think Tim might appreciate it. Very nice little article in Air and Space about Pete Law and his work at Reno...

Law Man

I think I posted this before, a photog buddy Anthony Taylor did the video. Listen to Strega wind that thing up at :34 seconds in. Also look for the SAAB pass by Skip Holm.

This year Hinton Jr. in Strega waited until the course was clear to qualify. He asked for the clock coming down the chute. I was dead quiet in the pits, the sound of that Merlin spooling up is one the greatest things you will ever hear.

Jay,

Definately the full frame version. Just feel like your going up into the wild blue in that one. The second photo lacks background and the engine which is pulling you on.

Dan

Looks like I'm first this page. Sorry, no aviation photo but working on some stuff from the Purdue - Indiana game couple weeks back. A friend got me press pass to shoot the game from the field, some fun!!! Gosh too much going on to know what to shoot first, and keeping your eye on the ball isn't as easy as it would seem!!!!

A little bare metal, a little bit of clouds, magic.

Serves me right for not looking at the by line... Well done.

So you've met him and you know, Pete's definitely one of the good guys.

Jay, to me, #1 says the journey's beginning, #2 says friends. What is that shark fin like shadowy thing here?

Brian, Enjoying the Apache fuel stop shots, but wondering how long it really takes to fuel Apaches if they're there all day into the night

A few more edits from the Apache fuel stop.


Ray, that's neat!

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!


Thanks Jay, means a lot!

Al: Congrats on the new body! As has been mentioned, a little time with it and it will become an extension of your creative self!

Nice Set Laura!

Oh, and you Texans, the ones with the Apache shots, um, yeah.... Good Stuff!!


Thanks Brian, this C-17 had its last flight this past spring, the engine's coming off permanently. Note the movie cameras on the side

Thanks Al, it wasn't too miserable as far as rain goes, and at least it wasn't 35F/1C and raining, that WOULD be miserable.
