Thanks for the link to that interview Zim, kind of sad though. We need the Tesla guy to get involved in that. We could be going to the moon on "AAA" power in a month.

Well it is 787 service, so I'm not sure how "direct" it might be...........


Lol. This is what the view looks like from seat 6A in business class on the BA 787.

Yes, I'm sure handheld is best so I'll keep trying. I have no problem with the 300mm 2.8 & 2x converter, so I expect it's just getting used to the weight

Umm, Jim? The Tesla guy is involved: Elon Musk is CEO of both Tesla and SpaceX. I guess the fact that the SpaceX Falcon rocket has delivered cargo to the ISS, and that Elon has made it his personal goal to live out his golden years on Mars, hasn't come to Mr Kraft's attention.

Yeah, the difference between swinging a 500 f/4 up to your face 100 times a day, vs. doing the same with a 100-400, is enough to make you take out a gym membership. Hypothetically, of course: I already had the gym membership.

You're killin' it, J-A: great stuff.

Mind translating the nose art for us?

On the starboard side it says 'De 2 C's', after the two men that were
credited with most of the effort in bringing this aircraft to Europe and
restoring her (although I do not recall their full names)
On the port side it says "Sarinah" and "plesiran 'neer?". Sarina is the name
of a girl. "plesiran 'neer" is a mix of Indonesian and Dutch, meaning as
much as "Are you still having fun, Sir?"

Well there you go Zim. I should have remembered that from the article that I read. Don't you think Rodolfo's portrait should have been something with cool lighting and his Tesla as a slightly soft (DOF) backdrop? Very powerful statement could be made, subliminally.
