Got up from my chair today and said I was done saying I should do it, and went and did it. Signed up at the local college and have four classes, 13 semester hours, chemistry, psychology, english, and math, school starts Monday. If I can do well in the classes, they may accelerate me on the waiting list.

Be sure to change your camera and Photoshop Copyrights to 2013 while your thinking of it

That's a 10-4, Good Buddy! Now, if I could only remember how to do this in Photoshop... aarrgghh

Hi Chris,

Yup, there's nothing quite like a 51 for sure. That's why they command the price they do. Let's make a plan and immortalize you and your beautiful Mustang. Do you have a B25 handy? Actually, now that this has gone public, we probably need a BBJ to accommodate all the MA2A shooters who would like to be there for that shoot!



I'll get in on some of that action!

Unfortunately it's not "mine", but I'd be happy to fly for you guys. Let me see what I can do about a B-25. I'll send you a note offline.

Welcome Jarrod,

My only criticism is why did it take you from September til now to share those beauties? Nicely done!!

Even with Canon's waffling and tardy release dates they still managed to sell more interchangeable lens DSLR's than anyone. They are even talking about a big megapixel body in 2013, which in Canon speak translates into 2014 for a release of the manual and early 2015 for the actual hardware........

Thank you kindly, sir I'm nervous, excited, and hoping I do well enough to get accelerated on the waiting list, and still have time to improve my photography and pp skills.

You know what Chris, if you're at the stick, it's as "yours" as it gets as far as I'm concerned. Everyone always introduced my buddy Brian as "the guy who owns Jim's T-6"

BTW, if anyone ever decides that they want a museum quality model of a particular aircraft, let me know. Many of you have seen the T6 model my carver in the Philippines made for me, well the B25 equals that one and adds some detail. They're not inexpensive and the 25 took a full two years to produce, but the recipients forgot about price and time when they took them out of the box.

Currently I have Butch's King Air 90, a Phenom 300, a Conquest, a Tucano and a Mustang in process. I can tell you that The Smithsonian Air & Space doesn't have anything on exhibit that comes close to these. The guy's work is just incredible. The B25's ran close to $500.00 taking shipping into consideration, expensive, but one of a kind.

I'm not picky - an A36 or a T6 will suit me just fine!

Still working on the Cleveland airshow.

Edit: Does the forum upload software recompress images? There's a lot more noise in this sky than in the file I uploaded.

Laura,

That is awesome!!!! I wish you all the best, I went back for my masters in engineering after working several years. It was a fantastic experience, hard work, long hours, and still one fantastic experience. Good luck! And if you lived in Iowa I'd be happy to tutor math and science.

Andrew,
Grand tour indeed, nice shots! I was a bit on the young side when I went as the shot shows hehe. Have not been to the NBL yet, but that vertical crew cabin rings a childhood bell as being the one I was in. Times have changed and only gotten better with me and the shuttles.



That tour was one of the coolest tours I have ever taken. I think its my favorite next to the Shuttle missions I covered while in school. It is a shame that they ended the Shuttle Program.

Interesting note about the consoles. Underneath each console is 40' of cable for each interface for every piece of hardware inside each cabinet. (Consider there are 3 unix workstations, 2 FDDI comm stations, etc., that's a lot of hardware!) We did not spec that in our drawings, so when I saw the NASA on-site contractor rolling up the extra cable and lay it under the floor on the cable tray, I ask him "why?". He said they had to do that in case the Flight Director or other operation manager wanted to move their console. I told him the center was designed with a distributed architecture, so all they would have to do is to move to the console of their choice and log in. Of course he answered, "I do what I am told". Your gov't dollars wisely spent. Of course, the building 30 lobby has a silver hammer award from Al Gore for saving the Gov't money! Go figure.


Interesting Facts Wrei. 40' of cable for each computer? Here I thought my Tower Sim System was complex with lots of cable.

Wow Andrew, thanks for that series. That must have been amazing. I once had tickets for a Shuttle launch that got scrubbed, and I traded them in for a Cape Canaveral Then and Now tour, which for me was pretty awe-inspiring in and of itself. I can't imagine what your access must have been like - I wouldn't have been able to sleep for days in advance.

Mark


Your welcome! I have plenty more where those came from. I personally have not taken the Then and Now tour, but I did see a lot of the older launch complexes while I covered NASA/Air Force Launches in college. I didn't sleep for a while after that tour, or before and after any of the shuttle missions I was fortunate witness. I kept having dreams of going into space. Then woke up and realized, I wasn't. I always wanted to go to at least space camp, but never did.
