Hi Erich,

My son JR took a couple of iPhone videos from Glenn's L39, which we now cherish, but I've not orchestrated anything high quality. If weather smiles on us this year, that is on the list to accomplish. We'll be putting Hero3's in the 25 tail and in selected subject aircraft.

Looking at the RIAT advance programme for 2013, the ONLY confirmed flying exhibit is the Vulcan so far - good enough reason to go methinks

That's the truth Niall! An airframe like no other. Hats of to those folks for keeping it in the air.

Cool! If any of them are willing to take a rider: have camera, will travel!

We can always do that. The problem comes in with the aesthetics of the shots of the subject aircraft. The only time you want someone in a subject aircraft is when they are in a matching flight suit and helmet. Most folks just don't have those hanging on a hook ready to go.

Ok, long time coming, but it's just about finished, although this kind of project is never really finished. I implemented a number of elements that I've been thinking about for a long time. As the Geico Gecko says, "they really bring the room together!"

Glenn would approve.............we never got to smoke cigars and sip scotch like we'd planned when it got to this stage. Guess we'll do the equivalent in Heaven someday.

Very nice Jim! I could "sequester" myself in that space for a while.

Wow that is an outstanding looking place Jim! I'd say go ahead and pour one in spirit anyway, you know he's there with you.

A 130J Raider from VMGR-352 on short final over the farm haze into NAF El Centro. The photo opps I've been blessed with as a member of Arizona Aviation Photographers has been phenomenal - particularly at El Centro. Back again with the group this coming Thursday. Anticipating another great day shooting next to the LSO shack

Jim, if you were a different man, I'd say you were missing a beer fridge

Just kidding, it looks great!

I was expecting a full disk on that ceiling fan Jim. That is a really nice hangar.

Sure! First time I've seen moving F-35s, not just stills. Probably haven't been paying enough attention...

Two things come to mind watching these carrier activities.
1) How do they get enough takeoff speed with that bloody great airbrake hanging upside the fuselage?
2) Much as I admire the technological achievements of all this, does anyone else find that landing on a carrier while hovering seems a little like cheating?!

When all those doors started to open just before takeoff, I expected it to transform into a truck or a robot or something.

1) I'd imagine someone is more of an expert than me on this topic, but I would assume that that speed brake door is linked to the lift fan doors.

2) Other than the fact that the carrier deck is still a moving target... but from what I've read being quoted from test pilots the F-35 is actually quite easy to handle in its vertical landing configuration.
