Yeah no kidding! I hate gold, it would have to be silver plated for me. Just while I'm speccing up my G3...

It's not always easy if you have too much light...

Pretty easy to expose to the right, though

Oh I can go one better than that Zim. A certain Saudi Potentate had his Airbus buckles engraved with his family crest, in platinum with gold plating. Now were way past the 1% and well into the .001%. Nice to have those names on the client list! And, even nicer to get some of my gas money back, well, all of it........come to think of it, all of it that I've ever spent....um, and probably ever will.

"What does this button do?".................................


Great images Jim. I'm loving these .001% guys/gals. A large group of terrific craftsman and aviation industry folks are able to put food on their respective tables because these .001%'s are spending. I see this business transaction as the proven and preferred "trickle-down" economics. Much better than the "wealth re-distribution" ideology being promoted by some. Why do Federal dollars to fund Solyndra type boondoggles seem appropriate, but allowing tax incentives for business aircraft is seen as inappropriate? Besides their actual corporations, these .001%'s employ a bunch of people through their purchases.

Whoops, I got on my soap box without a note from my mother. Back to our regular programing

BTW, does this particular Gulfstream have a heads-up display for the left seat? Thanks for sharing the images and information.

For my MA2A brothers and sisters using Adobe Photoshop CS6, there are some interesting presets and options available for both still and video that you might find helpful. Follow this link to watch a short video that gives a general overview of these presets/options.

I hope you find this helpful. Enjoy.

The light gets better and better Mikko!

Jan Arie, I have no problem commenting on the gold, it wouldn't be my choice, but then they never ask me I don't have gold in the Cub....., but the Cub is gold..sort of.

Jeff, Yes Sir, those types of questions go unanswered, because the answers would make way too much sense. They are supplanted by sentences like, "We need to pass this so you we can know what's in it...", and "unemployment compensation creates millions of jobs.." And, we need to pay for birth control for women who are needing more often than their budgets allow.... I am getting used to the feeling that I am living in an alternate reality.

The answer about the number of lights in the tube is "a bunch", and color filtration, and wattages, and hidden cords.

I guess I get to post one in this thread, too, even though it's just Mustang ground to ground.

Cool shot Zane, I like that you see a little piece of the P51C
Tell me how is the experience to fly in something like that Mustang.


I have been a fan of the P-51 for my whole life. My dad worked at North American during WWII and always talked about the Mustang with a mystical air to his voice. This flight was a true blessing from out of the blue. The idea was hatched a year ago.

The flight was amazing. The sound, smell and feel of the airplane is indeed special. The view in the Collings TP-51C rear seat is not all that good looking forward. But who cares! The airplane is smooth and docile feeling when you are just cursing along. But it shows it self to be a wild horse under power, during turns and rolls. I had the stick for over half of the flight..including one aileron roll. Flying along side the bombers just added to the special feel of the trip. My uncle flew B-24's so the added bonus of being in the P-51 along side the B-24 almost overwhelmed my emotions!

I was spent after the flight....driving home was not easy as the adrenaline wore off...lol
I owe many people for the making the opportunity happen. Jim, Whitney, Hunter, Matt, Ryan, Dawn, God...etc.

Wow...just wow.





Go ahead...try and wipe this smile off my face!



Well done Zane, didn't it feel like flying in a tube sitting in the back seat? Its a different feeling than being in the back of a D Model. It would be a great effort if you had to bail...

A mile of road will take you a mile.
A mile of runway can take you anywhere...

Figured while I was waiting in between the injection and the bone scan, that I'd go visit some planes.

It's a gated fly-in community and they get a little squirrely if they see someone hanging out at that end of the runway.

I've been "investigated" on a couple of occasions. No big deal really. People were nice enough but it was obvious they'd rather nobody be there.
