Hmm...that F-86 in the back corner sure looks familiar. Wonder if it's the same one...

Wow, very good call! The F-86 in my picture is the lead bird in your shot:

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone!

Here's another shot from Chino - This trip was part of my test run with the 24mm TS-E L II. Lovely lens, but man is it $$...

Crazy that I thought that the two could even be related...strange coincidence that I was actually right for once...it doesn't happen much, ask the wife :-P

Nice shot Jay.

Speaking of the wife, here's our picture for the christmas cards this year (didn't catch the crane behind my head since I was shooting from a tripod on a timer, but oh well, at 3" across even I won't notice the crane :P )

Hi Zim,

Sorry about the daughter of your friend, just an unthinkable circumstance.

Cute family shot Steven. A couple of clone stamp clicks and that crane would be history, if it bothers you.

Welcome, Joe! That's a very cool effect you achieved with the 24 TS: almost looks like you were shooting miniatures. Mind telling us what lens contortions you used? A lot of museums don't allow tripods, or did you shoot those hand-held?

Thanks steve, the shot was done with +8 degree tilt up with the focal point on the intake of the Sabre (Fined tuned via live view, it's very tough to see the proper focus with the viewfinder) then I shot one frame center, and one frame each 12mm full shift left and right.

The final stitch is quite a bit wider, but I cropped it for composition.

The Planes of Fame museum allows tripods and I had the place mostly to myself, so it was perfect for playing with the TS-E. I don't think I could get this particular shot if I had to shot hand held.

Thanks for the details, Joe. I'll have to take my 17mm TS out for a little playtime: I love the Dinky-Toy effect.

Cool TS shots Joe. I was never able to get much success when I played with that lens.

Thanks for the kind words everyone. I am glad to be back and have a decent job in my field and that I enjoy. Still waiting on the FAA to become a controller but who knows, I may just stay where I am if they take forever. If anyone finds themselves in Florida for Sun N Fun or the LSA expo in January, give me a holler. More than happy to link up.

Also does anyone have any ideas when the next ISAP symposium is going to be? Feb? March? April?

As a few of these guys returned for a 2nd time, they were expecting us photographers and requests to showboat seldom go unfufilled..

Hard to tell but this shows the lead guy jumping off the ground and rotating to hover taxi sideways past us:

Killer Apache images Glenn. I office 1-mile from where these bad boys are built and I've never had this type of photo op. Way to maximize your situation. I'm especially fond of your monochrome conversions.
