Thanks for the nice comments...that was an amazing flight. Im nervous before every flight, and especially so with new gear. But trial by fire is the best way to learn right?? That Jan Collmer is an amazing pilot - I think the Extra is controlled by his mind. Andrew is no slouch either - sure is a treat to fly with "pros" that put them selves exactly where you ask and stay there until you tell them to move.

Thought this a was pretty neat looking frame....I love flying with smoke on. half because it looks so awesome, and half because you get to say "smoke on" all the time

Glenn, this one is stunning. It looks more like a painting than a photograph. Reminds me of a painted advertisement from a vintage magazine, including the interior of your plane.

Not up to the usual high standards of this forum and black and white film, to boot. Some shots from the static display Saturday morning. WAY to much light for b&w flm and the only hood I had was wrong for my 50mm lens. You'll see some vignetting in these cuz of that. They don't get much sexier than a Corsair IMO.

Lynn, the Corsair and the P-40 Brian posted belong to the Texas Flying Lengends Museum at Ellington Field near Houston.

They also brought an Avenger and an original (um, with a PW engine) Zero A6.

Thanks for asking, Glenn. I guess more or less back to normal on the surface. Nice outpouring of support for all affected. It was terrible, but at the same time the response kind of renewed my faith in people in general, and this city and region in particular.

Otherwise, waiting for spring (it was 38F this morning). It will be interesting to see how they plan security for 500,000 people on the 4th of July.

Sad Mark, but we are going to need to "get used" to these things, like Israel has. No matter how good our people are, they only have to be wrong once. It doesn't help that the domestic bombing security budget was cut 45% recently, that makes a lot of sense.

Nice shot of Randy blowing out the MiG Brian. Wish Glenn Smith was in formation with him.

I'm the one that should be nervous! How was the show? Did it live up to all the hype?
