Nothing to dislike about whats going on here!

Glenn,
I assume those Texas sized honkin' tires are a pre-requisite for landing on the grass airstrips, or do they land those planes on even worse terrain?

great shot, btw

Hi Gero:

Thanks buddy - a well groomed grass strip isn't any different that a paved for most airplanes. With those tires you can land pretty much ANYWHERE - no runway required!

40th Birthday flyin for my friend John Cryrier - included low passes by a Nanchang, multiple Stearman in formation smoke blowing, and this P63...pretty nice birthday id say!

Kenny, the P-51 flew in Sunday for static display at the Central Texas Airshow.


Just my luck. I had debated going on Sunday and then decided on the spur of the moment Saturday AM to just haul a$$ up there. Oh well, guess I'll have to try Corsicana this weekend; it's just a little further drive from Aggieland.

Was trolling the archives looking for something else and ran across this...

This might be the very first "good" photo I ever shot. Nellis AFB, Aviation Nation 2007. Literally the last frame snapped as they were herding us to the buses. Turned around, saw this, snapped it and then got yelled at to move along...

Ah yes the "move along" shots. I have a few of those from my time out covering the shuttle launches, usually some of the best ones as they're totally unscripted.

Beautiful Phantom shots. Jay, it looks as if someone had gone over and spent a week spit polishing that F4 just for your shot. Very shiny indeed.

Just got this in at 16x24 to sign by request and then ship it to its new home...

Oh My! It's even better in print than I could have possibly hoped!

Thanks to all who helped with refining the concept!

James, let me know if you ever find a reason to change the AF mode to anything other than Case 1. So far, I really can't say that I have. Case 1 is just that good.

Ok, I'm setting up chairs so we can just watch Jay and Glenn roll their work by...... I'd be dangerously close to taking up golf, if it wasn't like watching paint dry!

Under the heading of "holy Kenyon Batman!" I just landed in the pitch dark and this was taken two minutes before I touched down. The brightness in the western sky is an illusion. D800/iso1600/1/30 sec. Kenyon 4x4.............

This is one of those times when I can pick at a shot for grain, etc, but must remind myself it was most likely unobtainable a week ago...............
