Jason Fortenbacher captured some great video of the unusual formation flybys out at Historic Flight Foundation this week. Anybody know the story of how and why this mission got put together? Two Night Stalkers choppers (a Chinook and a Blackhawk), a B-25, a T-6 and a Stearman.

Anybody want to hazard a guess at to why Olympus E-P5 raw files are so slow to convert to DNG? Both LR5 and Adobe DNG Converter 8.1 can handle them, it just takes 30+ seconds per file. Even D800 files are faster than that...

I think I remember him saying something to the effect that there's a connection of some sort from the Doolittle Raiders to that particular Army aviation unit...

Got Radial?

Yeah Bill, and the old standard, "I'm going to walk you through the rebooting process" . I told her that we didn't need to do that because I was unplugging it for good. This little AT&T hotspot works like a champ!

Glad you heard that one Jim, an oldie but a goodie !

Hey Bill,

Have you done any metal panels for new Skylanes with the G1000 package? I'd love to give you the business if it's something you want to do. Cessna's panel is "sorta" metal, kind of like cafeteria food is "sorta" food. I'd like the real thing like I had installed in my '81 182. I realize that one shouldn't expect such niceties when one is only spending 600 grand!?

Only military stuff thru ECS Composites / ECS Case for Lockheed Martin and other unmentionables.

Other things are for Jordan Air for the Air Tankers and DC9 Water Bombers and a little for Evergreen on the 747 that can drop water for like a mile.

Our speciality is stainless enclosures for the pharmaceutical industry and clean rooms along with particle counters.

Our wood stove we build also that can burn a presto log for 10 hrs is going a good and an off branch off that stove was just test fired a week ago.

-cheers-

I got an email from Red River Paper. I only see a portion of the email, but I saw what looked like a really great photo of a BA, so I opened it full screen. When I saw the name at the bottom, I immediately knew it was a winner.





Congratulations Larry!

I'm cringing at the thought of September 1st rolling by, been looking at my calendar all month trying to figure out a way to delete that day from my memory, and miss the anniversary. I was culling emails a little while ago and found this one that Glenn sent me after he got home from our last air to air shoot together. What a character........

He loved my D800 so much that I was planning on giving it to him, instead he gave me a half dozen Nikon lenses. Weird how life unfolds sometimes.

Take it easy out there Zane, s'posed to be around 105 before it's all over. That's not the temp for folks standing surrounded by concrete either

I've been trying to chase down some electrical gremlins in the Remos and decided to combine a test flight with a little camera/lens test of the new Oly E-P5 mated with the 75mm f/1.8 prime. Holy cow, this combo is sharp!

The first frame is a stereo-X pair of a cement plant near Lyons. The second frame is a full frame; the third is a 1:1 crop of the bottom left corner of the second. Sharp all the way to the corners, and not much CA, either.

Sorry for posting the full-size jpeg. Must have grabbed the wrong link at first... Ooops...

Shots look good Zim. Get the gremlins figured out?

No, darn it! My charging system is ailing and my mechanic can't figure it out. Charging amperage goes up and down with the electrical load, but the system voltage sags anyway, to the point that unless I shut off the xpdr and the anti-collision lights, I can't transmit on the radio. Add to that a carburetor that filled with fuel and choked two cylinders while I was taxiing the other day, and you have a sad, but typical episode of Life With Airplanes. I was planning to go to Blakesburg this weekend for the annual antique aircraft fly-in at Antique Airfield, but that's been scratched. Probably just as well: this heat wave has settled over the heartland in a big way.
