Great work Guys and Gal! I'm sure the crews will be very excited by what you captured. How nice to be able to give them a treat, given what they do for us on a daily basis.

Three hours into sensor cleaning hell at the moment. Just finished up my second X body, D800 is next in que. Not expecting it to be anywhere near as tough as the X's. I just ordered another couple dozen sensor swabs from B&H as I have depleted my stock.

Zim, are you experiencing anything like this with your X bodies? I thought I was having a sensor problem with one body because I was picking up a very subtle positive density in the sky during my cleaning regimen. Turns out it was a little dust on the back element of the 24-70 II, an easy fix.

I''ve got to get these clean because I have an Airbus Monday, a residential architecture shoot Tuesday and half of Wednesday, then I leave that for the midwest to shoot Thursday and Friday. If I don't have these sensors spotless, I'll be creating a Photoshop nightmare. Guess I need to just plan on cleaning my sensors at least once a week, or buy bodies for every lens. My guess is that won't work for the X's, because I think a lot of that is coming from inside. I'm going to use the H drive setting very sparingly and see if my sensors are cleaner.

I have to get out of town, two of my neighbors took delivery on brand new TBM 850's this week, I'm getting depressed. One guy has about 200 TT. My logbook is much larger than his, but my wallet is not........

Five hours of sensor cleaning and I'm about to crawl right out of my skin! The D800 has proven to be just as big of a pain as the X's. It wasn't as dirty, but I've been pushing the same crud around that sensor for two hours. How ridiculous! I think I'll quit for today before cameras are skipping across the ramp.

Inspired by Jay's recent volley of images from KPHX, I ran out their this afternoon to practice various panning techniques. I guy with shaky hands like me needs all the practice I can get. While commercial aircraft may not be a sexy as the warbird and military platforms, combine them with a busy airport and you get regular opportunities to improve your technique

Not a great shot, but by the time you get to Saturday, it seems everybody likes to go faster and run higher power settings. This bone stock Mustang all of the sudden was running a full spraybar system.

I noticed it a few weeks ago, but thought I must have read the name wrong originally.

Jim, I've sent my X in to CPS for cleaning, twice. Each time it's come back with a cleaner sensor than when it went in, but by no means spotless. I've been nursing my D800 along without a cleaning, yet. Your tales do not inspire me to start cleaning my sensors myself.
