Rob, those are impressive images in your collage. I wonder at the tech behind the frame rate. Are these frame captures from a reel or a multi-cam setup? Thanks for sharing!

So other than the Collings plane, how many are still flying this side of the pond? I think Germany still flies them but not for much longer if memory serves.


German Phantoms are due to bow out of service at the end of June.

F-86 "HELL-ER BUST X" on the landing break. With P-38 "Thoughts of Midnight" at Alliance 2012.

A-36. Too bad it sat on the ground the entire week at OSH.

Once the German Phantoms bow out, the last countries still using Phantoms operationally will be:

Japan
South Korea
Greece
Turkey
Iran

The status of Egypt's Phantom fleet is unknown.

I've not included the QF-4's or the Collings Foundation Phantom in this list.

The usual craptacular OSH background, but a full disc is a full disc.

As a question. Rumor has it that our company has secured a new Jet. Trying to figure out what we bought/leased...anyway to use flight aware to track two airports as the criteria, or would I just have to hope to get lucky and catch the flight plan out of KPBI?

In theory it would have flown from CYYC to KPBI at some point thursday or friday (possibly saturday, but unlikely) and given that our old jet (C-FCPR) has already filed a flight plan to go to Chicago Midway tomorrow morning, this new jet probably has already filed a flight plan to come back to CYYC tomorrow.

Hi Steve:

yes, type in the designator and you will see enroute, scheduled depar and arrival

A Lear 60 is scheduled to make that trip today, and a challenger registered to Morningstar Partners made the trip thursday.

Thanks! I'm not sure! I assumed a high speed still camera of some sort since the prints were 8x10 but I guess enlargements wouldn't have been out of the question. I'll ask my dad to see if he knows.

Oh...and nice Falcon!! Love the sunset gleaming off the nose!

Thanks Glenn, it's CYYC though, Calgary, looks like nothing showing for today/tomorrow, which is why I was wondering if I could look at previous days.

Our 2007 Citation Sovereign is going to Chicago tomorrow, but nothing for whatever the new one is...

Just for fun, here's the FS listing for our "old" Jet:
http://www.controller.com/listingsdetail/aircraft-for-sale/CESSNA-CITATION-SOVEREIGN/2007-CESSNA-CITATION-SOVEREIGN/1257273.htm

Not that I think we're in any rush to sell it, it's still up cruising the skies a few days a week.

...it's a rough life being the CEO...you should see his houses (one in Palm Beach, and an acreage in Connecticut).

Hi Steve-
I do some work for a company that has it's office at KPBI. I look at the ramp all day. If you have any idea what I'd need to look for (besides a charlie registration) I'd be glad to keep an eye open and even snap a pic if you'd like...

I honestly have NO idea what it is we bought to replace the Sovereign, I know it would be bigger and better in every way than the Sovereign, cus that's how our CEO rolls.

Maybe a G of some form? Could be an X? It SHOULD be a C- reg'd Plane, but it could be leased, so it's hard to say.

If how the old plane was treated here is any indicator it almost certainly is given inside storage at one of the FBOs, and will file a flight plan and then sit there idling until the CEO chooses to show up.

Thanks.

I'm guessing it could have been with a Canon F-1, given the date. Still, it seems like 9 fps might not capture the close spacing of those frames. Just musing out loud.

Just wanted to add a few IT things.

Try these tools:

http://www.measurementlab.net/measurement-lab-tools

Are you sure you are connecting at 100mbps ? Sometimes, if the setup is configured to 'auto negotiate' the speed and duplex, it will fall to 10mbps. Turn off 'auto negotiation' and set it to 100 on the NIC card and router. Also, full duplex. Really needs to be that way on all the network hardware.

Do you actually have a 'router' or hub ?

I agree, you should check on something other than Linksys. I've heard good things about the Apple network hardware.

I would check online for a firmware and driver updates for the NIC and router. Then, apply them.

This is interesting about youtube. It appears they use a 'throttling' engine. Basically, and it will be a different config for Mac,PC(depending on what OS), router, firewall, etc...In your router setup or PC firewall you want to block this address: 206.111.0.0. The subnet mask is: 255.255.0.0 Once 206.111.0.0/16 is blocked, youtube's player logic will fall back to Google's datacenters and stream at beautiful speeds. This is extremely useful for HD yt videos.

A bit of a different one here. At the 2011 Airsho in Midland we gave a WASP a ride flight and gave her some stick time.

It was an honor to be able to help out with this.
