Well the Unlimited class is a cluster you know what. The Unlimiteds decided they are not racing this year. They feel that the max altitude at pylon 8 of 250ft is not safe, and course changes made by RARA are putting too many G's on the pilots.

RARA then went behind the Unlimiteds back and formed a new group called WUR, Warbirds Unlimited Racing, with Tiger, Strega's owner at the helm of the new group. Matt Jackson heads the other group.


Tim, Reno sounds like a royal cock-up. I hope that the Unlimiteds and RARA can work things out, because I'm with you 100% when you say that Reno is finished without them. The Unlimiteds _are_ Reno, at least as far as the majority of the public is concerned. Section 3 sure as hell isn't paying to watch the bipes race.

Well I don't know what to do now... we are kind of thinking about going to Reno this year, although we'd have to arrive on the Friday as we have a concert to attend here in Austin on the Thursday night. So if there's no Unlimiteds, what would we get to see on the Saturday and Sunday?

All the other classes will be racing. Things are really in flux right now, which screws attendance. They are shooting themselves in the foot.

There are a couple of modern metal storage buildings I'd like to see gone, and perhaps one or two of the more obnoxious street lights.


Thanks Steve - I value your comment and opinion. I have reworked the original. I have removed those items (Thank to Content Aware in PS) and have 'turned the lights off' in some of the houses and turned 'em down in the rest.
Recropped to get nearer the rule of thirds.

Two versions - not sure which I prefer... colour or B&W?

Further C&C welcome



Beautiful, Donald! The only thing I'd fix now is the square shadow left over after you removed the larger of those two buildings. Not that many people would notice it, but it's there and it sticks out if you know what to look for. And it's an easy fix.


Thanks Steve - I cannot see a shadow - Is it possible that you are seeing a good 'ol English hedgerow. (We keep 'em neatly trimmed and square topped.) None-the-less, thanks for the CnC

I'm hoping to go Saturday, as I'm picking up my girlfriend at the airport about an hour after the show ends.

I'll miss not seeing the military birds, but I'll take a Mig, a Sabre and a Corsair any day.


Looks like we missed the deadline for pre-purchasing photo tour/pit tickets, so I have no idea where I'll be during the show. I'll PM you my cell number, hopefully we can meet somewhere.

Very tasty sample, J-A. That Su22 is a mean-looking machine. But my favorite image here is the Mirage 2000D: crispy and delicious.

Hmmm. I went to the Fort Worth-Alliance air show website to buy pit passes for this year's show, but the "Purchase Tickets" button takes you to the 2012 show's AttendStar page, where you obviously can't buy tickets for 2012 or 2013. Anybody know what's going on, or have a better link?

I mentioned that earlier and Jim said they were still working out the plans.

Don't worry about that Erich, I'll make sure there are tour/pit tickets available for you. You'll be with the group, we wouldn't have it any other way.

Didn't see Zim's post re: AFW. I'll get answers to all of this Monday morning, but rest assured, MA2A folks will all be together.

Now to Jan Arie's images...........................JA! You are sneaking in some practice here and there, cuz those are just absolutely gorgeous. Do you suppose we could talk that B25 crew into flying us, and then talk the military guys into pulling up behind us? I think we could put together a mission filled with close friends for that!

Just looked at a little 4K footage that I shot, on the new Sony 4K flat screen...............um, holy cow!! I need to shoot some stuff with a 1DC, and run it through that Sony. I have a hunch that it'll do until the 8K comes along.

Nice work Leviathor - Fargo cleaned up nicely for the festival

The really nice series on the thatch roof buildings, Jo's airshow, wents' priceless $60 series and those 4x4.s of Shooters, J-A's and Stevezz razor sharp photos over the last 5 pages are spectacular ! I sure hope I didn't miss anyone as there was quite a bit going on !!

I liked your Oxbow Bend Dan ! I go in the Fall - end of Sept to avoid everyones vacation - 2006 was wonderful and had beginners gear - 2011 I had the gear I have now and it was a dud - to warm so in fact we left a day early and went over to SD Custer State Park which turned out to be GREAT !

But Oxbow - it's always 10a before I get there and Mormon's Run are givens .. ya gotta shoot em ...... In the Fall the locals stand there all morning in the prime parking lot spots taking shots of the Mt when the clouds clear - to see who can get the most of the Mt with the Fall foilage.

Please bear with me with this series I just reprocessed -














This is what I want to shoot more of .. nice landscape and then .. wait - there's a ..












So leaving YNP on the last day - this guy came racing out of the trees right in front of us and up onto the next berm - 15 more feet up the road in the car and I'd of been wearing those antlers !
