Nice work Jeff, sounds like you had a crash course in air to air. You learned a half dozen lessons that it takes most people several years to pick up. Lens shades are never a good deal air to air, the reasons can range from 50 bucks to several million.

Next time out you'll build on all the things you learned, and learn some more.

Great shots Jay.. just need to make sure the GIB's are briefed that they can never take their eyes off the photo plane too

Hi Zim,

No flash, no rear curtain, and only one chance to get it right. One shooter sacrificed a 70-200 lens hood a few minutes before my shot, in a Life of Pi kind of experience.

Hi Jeff:
What a cool thing to participate in. canopy open inverted flying is quite a rush too! Looking forward to seeing the rest of your take. Glad the lens hood blowing off didnt cause any trouble -

I can only applaud your ability to foresee the shot and the skills you brought to bear to carry it off, Jim. Oh, and your fortitude in standing your ground in the face of a charging big cat, fence or no.

Thanks for the tip Chris. Not my gig (arranged by Mr. Slocum), so I had to kind of plink where I could but I'll check my shots and see if she looked at us with that same background.

Incredible backdrop Jay.
Also make sure the GIB is not doing the "Moose" ... Chris can explain. He probably has a photo of it.

Was flying back from Florida during the race, but I understand Sentimental Journey took over the fly over duties today as Luke AFB was told no. Bad for Luke, but I am glad to know to CAF is able to fill the void.

Any thoughts on the Texas race up there Jim?

I'm just giving you a hard time. They are great shots, you can't control that kind of stuff anyhow.

Yes Curtis, it's bad when your backseater does this:

I hate it when pilots and passengers are caught doing stupid things on an otherwise nice and sharp frame!
