A like the line about a CF-18 having more thrust than all the Snowbirds combined. It made me chuckle.

Hey Guys and Gals,

We're putting together a graphic composite of the best images of Fort Worth Alliance 2012. The end product will be a big print hanging in the lobby at AFW. We all know what the conditions were, so this might require a joint effort. First, no pressure, if anyone doesn't want to participate that's fine. If, on the other hand, you would like to, pick three, four five, whatever, of your favorite images and send them to me as large jpegs. We would like to have them in the next week or so, then we'll dig in to the graphic design elements. I'll get you all a hi res version of the final product. Ideally we'd like to have a variety showing the participants, ramp displays, any vignettes that you captured that you think would be cool in the afore described format.

Normally between Deb Hale and myself, we have more than enough to fit the bill. I spent most of the only decent day getting everyone in and situated, in preflight briefs, or in the tail, so my contributions this year will be a bit anemic. Saturday/Sunday, for me, were a complete waste of good gear and digits.

Thanks in advance!

There was one of those (private livery) parked in the hangar next to my BBJ yesterday. That thing was going through some inspection the bill for which would make Bill Gates tear up. There were pieces and parts and pumps everywhere.

The BBJ is the newest ride for the President of Nigeria, it's no Air Force One, but it's a nice ride. Maybe Nigeria lives within it's budget and we could learn something from them.

Zim,

hope you two are feeling better. I just did a little digital housekeeping at HQ and now have everything Thunderbolt here. I ran a test a few minutes ago with a 70GB folder, moving it from one Tbolt Drobo to another, 70GB.....6 minutes or less.

Thanks, Jim: one step at a time. We actually got out for awhile today, but we're not up to par yet: mealtimes come and go and we just blanch at the sight of food. And you KNOW how much I love to eat. I'm thankful we don't fly home until the redeye on Wednesday night/Thursday morning.

Although, come to think of it, that airline flight on the way over here was probably where we picked up the bug...

Nice series, Glenn, good to see old friends. But you forgot to call the Canon shooters: where are the white lenses?

While we numbered ourselves among the vertical today, Marcia and I visited the Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden near Hilo. It's in a beautiful spot on Onomea Bay, well worth the visit. The surf is still high on the eastern shore of the Big Island, as the first two images attest. The third one pissed me off, because when I first spotted him the gecko was on the sunny side of the flowering body, then slipped over to the shady side before I could bring the camera to bear, and stayed there.

Hope you like spider webs.
