No, but JR is spooled up for a class action, there's a whole site devoted to accidents and injuries as a result of this very thing.

I wish I had some sweet warbirds to share... only these pesky half million dollar plastic autopilots...

Another reason to visit St. Michaels!

Many of you may remember the F105 that collided with Santa Claus this past Christmas, that Talbot County residents Tom and Alice Blair had assembled. He has donated that jet to the Easton Airport, and it sits out on the tarmac until they can afford to build a platform for it.













I've also shared photographs of their home .. if you look thru the photos on the following website you'll see a replica Spitfire hanging from the ceiling in the library.

There has been some discussion between Saph and me about the Spitfire Hangar .. I forgot to mention HE OWNS ALL THE PLANES and CARS IN THAT HANGAR.

Today they finished their 2013 Memorial Day display. It inlcudes a tank, a UH-1E, UV-10 HML-267 and what I thought was registration number 151858 though it doesn't pull up - there is also a side car motorcycle and a submarine mockup with the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines represented thru 237 years.













from the road ..






There will be hundreds of video and photographs taken of this display from the tourists heading to St. Michaels - the locals and those who will drive just to see what these wonderful family has shared.

It is a great Mustang to shoot. It only made it to OSH that one year.

The Prowler in the last rays..............Look for this to be a cover published in Jan Arie's neck of the woods.

Jim,

What's the latest regarding the Prowler - still grounded?

Hi Mark,

Yes, regrettably. I'd buy it in a blink if it ever became available, I love that airplane. My guess would be that it'd take $500,000 to get it to MA2A standards, but what the heck a B25 is more fun than bonds! I think I know where I could find a number of great folks who would help me buff her out! And, Gunny needs a permanent left seat!!

Thanks to Jay and Glenn for taking the time to work with my P-51 image. Flat light, absolutely: what sun there might have been was on the other side of the airplane.

I think both versions have merit: Glenn's has those great clouds and fabulous detail in the water, but the yellow nose bowl and spinner are blown out in at least one channel, to my eyes. And perhaps the whole is a little oversaturated, but that's a matter of taste. Jay's is very clean and the color is good, and he worked the clouds well, too.

I'll gather up all three 'final' versions, Glenn's Jay's and mine, and post them side-by-side when I get Glenn's version back.

Steve,

Any chance you could send me a copy of the file, would quite like a stab at it.

Mark
