Al




That's a good spot, Al, just across the freeway from the south end of the Alliance airport and across the street from the Hilton Garden Inn where I'm staying.


I just Google earth'd it a while ago, seems OK, I was beginning to think it was at the wrong airport ??
All cool now just finished packing & weighing bags....oh dear...

I can't pack until the Big Brown Truck shows up. I realized I don't have a camera bag that will both hold everything and fit under the seat on a commuter jet.

One of these days we need to plan a MA2A weekend and invite everyone, get a band, food, photography, flying, all kinds of fun. Anyone in?

Looking forward to seeing everyone coming in this week! Missing all of you who can't make it.

Perhaps on the other side of the calendar in late March to augment the Alliance show.(While it is still cool, but turning green.)

Speaking of VIP parking at Alliance (can you tell I'm procrastinating on completing my sales tax returns for Q3?) I noticed that this year's photo pit passes don't show that VIP parking is included, as was true in past years. Anyone else get the pit pass without the photo tour?

Hey, I just saw on the Alliance website that the T-Bird painted T-38 will be there. Do I need new reading glasses, or is that a recent addition? Either way, cool!

I got that, J-A; but I'm NOT on the photo tour, just have Photo Pit passes. In past years that always included VIP parking but there's no sign of parking info on this year's pass. An oversight, perhaps? Jim?

Steve,

In 2010 there was a separate pass you printed for parking.
In 2012 the ticket doubled up as your parking pass.

Don't know yet Mark It wouldn't produce sharp pictures any more.
Tried everything resetting new firmware etc. but still the same results.
Tried to put it on manual but when I saw a sharp image in the view finder and pushed off a frame the photo was un sharp and blurry.
The thing that surprised me was when I manually tried to focus you could hear the camera make a bleeping sound normally that tells you that he is in focus but that was not what I was seeing but I did fired off one shot and to my amazement the photo was sharp but I couldn't see a sharp photo in the viewfinder? so you tell me if you think what caused that.
Even calibrated the eye piece to my eye so i knew for sure that i ruled everything thing out that I new of.

Tried all my lenses on another body but the were all good there with sharp results.
To bad it happened wile in the Loop and I didn't had my mark II with me.
Next time I will haul the spare with me...

I did take some photo's with it they are on the previous page some were from when it still preformed good the others were taken with the Live view function that worked ok but not on fast Jets.

Edit for tops 300 mm with live view
