Leo, know that you and your family have my sympathies and prayers. If there's anything I can do while you're "in the neighborhood" so to speak, let me know.

As many of you know, my mother-in-law was diagnosed with cancer about 1 yr ago. Early this morning she finished her race and is made whole again. It is with equal measures of sadness and joy that I am leaving for OH in the morning with our children (my wife is already there) to grieve the loss of a wonderful mother and grandmother and celebrate the life of the woman she grew to be. I covet your prayers as we travel and process this loss in our family structure.

She was know for her ready smile and servant heart...

After 50 years Dryden Flight Research Center has been renamed as the Neil A. Armstrong Flight Research Center.

Would Neil have wanted this to be renamed? I don't think so.

Congress and the Senate spent time on getting this renamed just a few days out from Sequestration....

The lone Democrat to speak, Rep. Donna Edwards (Md.), noted the irony in the vote. “We will do our renaming today,” she said, and then “we will take an ax hammer to NASA’s budget on March 1, at the end of this week, taking out $894 million from an already strapped budget. I dare say future generations will not be inspired by what this Congress will do.”

Sorry I haven't been around as much, been a little busy playing tourist in Florida The weather could stand to be a bit better though. Visiting an old friend yesterday, fairly appropriate the rain and the vultures in the area I guess. More when I am not running around.

Funny how quickly one can go from leader to trailer. Throughout life's journey it's important not to read and believe too many of your own press clippings, because it causes one to become complacent, i.e. Kodak (what do they make now?)

Thank you for all the kind words. We are blessed to have very supportive friends and family and I'm glad that all of y'all are a part of that group.

Glenn - This was the semi-annual photocall we have at NAF El Centro, California. Jay, Rob, myself (there may be others posting to MA2A) belong to Arizona Aviation Photographers (AzAP) and the group leadership coordinates a visit with the PAO twice a year. There are a few more groups that also participate. It is a unique privilege and experience to shoot military aircraft at such close range. We are literally standing next to the white line as Super Hornets launch with full AB

This video is from our visit last week. http://airshowvid.com/naf-el-centro-winter-photocall-2013

Jeff,
that's a great video, and really showcases how fortunate you and your group were with the access you were granted. Sometimes it feels like you need the hubble space telescope to get shots at Andrew's since the flight line seems so far away.

You, Jay and Rob have posted some real wall hangers here.

Hi Jeff:
Sorry for leaving your name off the list! Just watched the video, man that is awesome. I'd have to keep reminding myself to take pictures rather than just stand there in awe. I will be so depressed if this military airshow cancellation deal goes through.

Glenn
ps - those Prowlers are so freak'n loud!

No worries Glenn - there are a bunch of very good shooters that come to these El Centro photocalls and I feel darn lucky to rub shoulders with them. Jay and Rob are two of the best.

While everything is loud going down that runway, the Prowlers are surprisingly so considering they don't have afterburners. From my short experience at NAFEC, the Super Hornets launching with full AB has been the most impressive in both decibels and rattling my internal organs. Interestingly, standing next to that white line while a C-130 is bouncing is very impressive in the "pushing air" department
