Ahhhh, I can just smell the aroma Jay! And you rolled us over to 600 pages! The book is getting heavier and heavier.

iStock just sent me a note letting me know that I'm approaching 4,000 downloads. Another thing I struggled with, stock at four or five bucks a pop. Once I got over it, I discovered that cashing the checks is kind of fun!

Time to clean my sensors again, especially the 1DX. The upper left hand corner is always the worst spot. Some action within the mirror chamber seems to toss a preponderance of crud in that quadrant.

Whew! I'm glad it's the weekend! Five 16 hour days in a row are tough on an old guy's feet! Looking forward to relaxing at HQ tomorrow and backing up the week's take.

My iMac is back, new screen, new logic board...Apple Care is good!

The thread title threw me off so I hadn't paid any attention to it thinking I couldn't have anything to contribute. However based on what I'm seeing I think these fit. Some amazing images and I've only checked a few pages so far but will catch up. These are from last years Air Show Cozumel where the crowd gets to line up right along the runway. I'll start with a couple of the late Fred Cabanas who unfortunately lost his life there in Jan doing some promotional stuff for this years event.





































And no I didn't freeze the prop. He's landing dead stick which seems to be his trademark. He's quite famous for landing a passenger jet dead stick as seen in this YouTube video.

Thanks for the welcome & you're right on both counts. Having been a regular at the Transportation section at POTN for years I know some of the names & skill set already BUT I see a lot of names I'm not familiar with . There aren't many full scale air shows in the area so I've been honing my skills on the Radio Control side of aviation for a few years. I've decided to expand on several fronts so I'm looking at images in several of the sections here.

Shooting RC, even big scale RC, is much tougher than 1:1, so you should be in good stead. Let us know how we can help.

That seems to be Jay's attitude too, and although it's a challenge I've been able to find the right combo of gear to get good results and it's certainly been a great way to improve my panning skills. I've become the official (volunteer) photographer for all the local clubs plus I've now got the right contacts to pretty much get flight line access at any event I might want to attend. these R/C's could easily pass for full scale most of the time based on the comments I've received at POTN or when showing them here at home.

Welcome to MA2A, Larry. You have a lot of catching up, but then that is just part of the fun.

Good edit Jay.


Cicopo: nice to see another Canook in here. I lived in Ottawa for 14 years.

Playing with a free trial of Oloneo HDR software. Moving all the sliders around can really cause some weird looking stuff. Here is one and the original on my site now.

It's ridiculous how much crap my 1Dx gathers. Doesn't seem like dust either..lubricant? Necessary with the insane shutter speed capability?

Race 74 rework. Halo around the tail is driving me nuts trying to fix.

A West Jet 737 on short final into KPHX on Friday afternoon. It was landing during a fairly severe thunderstorm that was producing a very heavy mix of rain and hail. It was amazing to see how much water those turbo fans will pump. It appeared as if the thrust was more liquid that air.

Just to make sure she had the pilots attention, Mother Nature provided a substantial crosswind.

Westjet received their 100th Boeing 737 a little while ago. It's official tail number is C-GAWS, but I'm not sure how to track it...it has a hash tag on it for the 100th

more just useless trivia than anything

Those sure would pass for 1:1 Larry! Great job!!

Jeff, That's a very cool capture. I'm assuming you were standing in the same thunderstorm I admire your tenacity! The one way in the background is the icing on the cake.

That was probably Roel arriving at KPHX onboard BA 747.

Just saw that Navy Tac Demo for El Centro has been scrubbed
