Thinking about picking the PC 12 up at the factory, wouldn't that be fun?!


Jim,

All PC-12s being delivered from the factory stop off about 1hrs drive from me enroute Stateside.
Now if you there was a suitable platform available, there are some stunning locations nearby me for an A2A shoot.

Thanks Mark! JR and I were emailing paint schemes back and forth late last night and discussing where it should be finished out. If we do it here we'll have more control, and they don't install wi-fi at the factory, and Zim is close , we've decided to have it finished out in Colorado. We can fly it to Europe after it's done.

I'm trying a Canon EF 14mm f/2.8L II lens this week. It is a very interesting tool. The difference in coverage compared to Canon's 16-35 f2.8 L II unreal. Certainly a specialty lens, I'm very impressed with the lack of perspective distortion when you have it perfectly (and I mean perfectly) level. To keep with an aviation theme, here is a photo I took with the 14mm Saturday at LAX. That is a Malaysian Airlines 777ER on final to 24R.

You could have asked the pilot to move a touch to port
Very impressive!

That's why they invented Photoshop.

Nicely captured, Jeff. Don't you just love the EF 14mm? By the way, is that the Moon, or a dust spot on your sensor?

I'll volunteer to test out the passenger seating.


I volunteer to be steward and inflight entertainment...


I would pay good money to see it.

Ooh, I'll have to start thinking about locations and looking for the right photo platform. The Remos just won't cut it.

PC-12 completion is done at KBJC, yes? That's about six miles over my shoulder as I write this.

Thanks Niall and Steve.

It is the moon. I contemplated cloning it out of the photo to avoid any confusion, but decided to leave it in - for now

For an Arizona boy that has endured the "dry heat" when shooting aviation images, I become a kid in a candy store when I get a chance to photograph some serious vapor like you often get early morning at LAX. So to beat a dead horse, here is another vapor image. BTW, if you think an A380 produces vapor trails, it appears an MD-11 can crush air with the best of them

And how about those nice black wings to expand your fuel and dump it overboard on a warm day? What in the world are they thinking? 164 knot, probably optimistic, cruise and big doors that come off. Never have needed six seats. Just looking at all the options before we pull the trigger on a Cessna.

A little evening skyline action here under another perfect Texas sky.


Wow and Wow. That is a great image, I'll bet the bigger it is the better it looks.

Gee whizz, JW, The first thing that came to mind on the Black winged bird, was how hot could those wings get. Warning, don't touch in the Summer.

Exactly Tom! Aside from being just dog ugly, those black wings would melt down here in the summer. Cessna's lack of design sense is exactly why our new bird's factory scheme will be met with a bucket of stripper shortly after delivery. You just couldn't fly the ugly off of that Stationair, ever. The Skylane schemes aren't horribly offensive, but they aren't great either. The interiors are a joke, plastic everywhere. We'll fix that as well.

Well Steve .. I have the T, helped make the video, and got implicated in the book. Trust me no amount of money would suffice.

In other news, Sir Donald occasionally puts me out on loan, so this Saturday I found myself at the Scottish National Air Show @East Fortune. A very good day out I was doing Butler Services for two of our Camera Club lady members. Ice cream was consumed and photons where harvested.
