Steve,

what height were you guys flying at on that sortie?


Looks like 2000'-2500'


I think it was closer to 1500', though they didn't provide me an altimeter I could see from the rear seat of the T-6.

Glad you made it home safe, Jay.

By the way, I've got some duck lips shots of John, too.

I promise I won't blow the place up with Bodie images, but if you EVER get the chance to go there, I highly recommend it!

Bodie is so enchanting and close to everything that's awesome on the eastern side of the Sierras it's impossible to not visit.

Was that shot through the glass, Jay? Really crisp! A quick look at their site seems to imply that building access has gone the way of Bodie's original residents.

Wow. For a minute, I thought I had posted one of my Bodie images. Looking thru that old wavy glass is something you should all get to do. I was there and made a couple of exposures thru the class, and a fellow said" You aren't going to get much, just look at that glass, and how dark it is". Nothing ventured, nothing gained. I think, everything is still right where they left it. That one image is full of still life's .There is another store like it in Pagosa Springs, Colorado, at the Fred Harman museum. Remember Red Ryder?

"The Great Dobransky" is back in business with his little spot just six nautical from HQ. Our timing was good this morning, caught him heading out in the VTail. He is flying a P210 out of DBI II .............Yikes!! No problem for a stepper!

I'm guessing RWY27 is right to left as we're looking at this?

This is great, Jay. It's been too many years since I've been, but do the buildings have a lean, or is the horizon tilting a bit? Even if they are actually leaning, I would be tempted to see what they look like "corrected," with the added bonus of that left hill getting a bit taller, so the eye rolls right through the frame even more dramatically.

Don't know why you're seeing a lean...

Everything in Bodie is squared up and plumb!
