My fine associates. You may recall that a while back I teased this group with two photos from the F-35B resdesignation ceremony at MCAS Yuma. I am happy to report that my article and images have been published as part of the new "Southwest Aviation Review" online media venture.

http://www.southwestaviationreview.com

When you get a little free time, I'd sincerely appreciate your review and comments. Southwest Aviation Review ("SoAR") is a growing media group that I believe will be making large strides in the aviation community during the next year. I felt privileged to be asked to contribute. Please check back frequently as SoAR adds articles and expands its audience.

Last teaser…


Jeff,
congratulations on a job well done. I hope they turn to you for many future assignments. I take it that all photos are yours unless otherwise noted?

Just an uneducated guess, Bomber/Fighter? Curious to know myself as it has been FA for Fighter Attack in recent years.

Shooting the first BBJ of 2013 on Sunday, Just killin' time til my 74-8 arrives I can't share a lot of this with you, unfortunately, because the aircraft ownership is so high profile. There's lots of clandestine features and countermeasures in most of these, not your every day liveries for sure.

We've settled in at our B&B overlooking Waipio Valley and the Pacific: again, not too shabby.

I've been thinking about what I posted the other day concerning the new ISnAP: not cool. I should have aired my concerns to the management and kept my mouth shut here. Jim and Jeff, your responses were tactful in the extreme; I was out of line and I apologize for airing my grievances in public.

As for volunteering my time to help the organization, I recognize the need but can't see my way clear to dedicating a block of time at the moment. If that changes, I'll let you and Larry know.

Nice report on -121s first F-35s Jeff.

BF-15 is the production number for the F-35B variant used by Lockheed Martin, the USAFs F-35As are 'AF-01' onwards and the Navy F-35Cs are 'CF-01 etc. So BF-15 and -16 are the 15th and 16th F-35Bs built.

Dear Zim,

Apology accepted, but not necessary. We need to work harder to make sure whatever product we present to the membership, be it print, digital, social media, is as close to perfect as humanly possible when it's released. As you know from our conversations, we're just thinly staffed, but we shouldn't use that as an excuse.

Glad you two are enjoying your tropical time together.....uh, I'm not sharing any of your R&R posts with Sheila, she thinks those spots only exist in "pitcher" books and movies...

It's a highly modified Harvard. Heard someone at the event mention it was one of the birds that was modified to be a Zero for the movie "Tora, Tora, Tora" and was then modified to this..an NA-50....but the Harvard features still show pretty strongly.

I think I have discovered why we occasionally get caught short with no top pic post. The the thread reorders on occasion and a post ends up bumped to the top of the next page some time after it was originally posted. Anyway, that's my story and I'm sticking to it!

That Harvard was modified by Les Crowder (the late) in McKinney Texas. Les and the gentleman that did all of Jimmy Leeward's work partnered on lots of stuff and had hangars across from each other at Aero Country Airport, about 5 miles west of KTKI. Les's workmanship was incredible, when you could get him to actually do it. That airplane sold fairly recently, for not all that much money, $175,000 or a little less. Truth is, when you modify a Six or a Harvard, or any airplane, it generally becomes worth less because the lineage is gone and what you have is really a "?". A Six in spotless condition like that would go for well over 200-225K.

What a pleasant scenario for the passengers. Yuck! I hate snakes! In fact, I have a Colt Diamondback that is perpetually loaded with snake shot cartridges. When one ventures into the back yard from the forest it is dispatched post haste.


Vertical Jello ....

Lovely image Jim.

Ive got a question for you guys,....particularly the guys who shoot aircraft interiors...

Ive got a car shoot to do & the owner wants some interior shots as well its a bit of a showcar ,
The roof lining is white, & the interior is mostly white...could I power down the 580EXII & use the roof lining as a big reflector I have a G Fong Cloud & a small diffuser as options.
Im shooting with the 7D , but may end up using the 1D4.

Al

Angry,

I would try putting the 580EXII behind the seat pointed up at the roof and use the 7D's remote flash triggering to light the interior. Perhaps with a diffuser attached. You can also use the flash on the 7D to balance the lighting some. Could be a fun challenge, but you might have to practice some first.

I use the 7D and remote fire up to 3 flashes for fun, home photo's and have been getting some very good results.

Make sure you share with us some of the photos you take,

Dan

Dear Al,

I've been doing this stuff for 32 years + and every scenario is different. You just need to get in there and see what works. Colors, shapes, ambient, your lighting, they will all influence the end result. I think you are on the right track with the headliner bounce, you'll know quickly if it will work.

Those are the kinds of assignments that have you staring at the ceiling in the middle of the night dreaming up techniques. Good luck!
