Did something a little different today. There was a fund-rasier going on, the pilot's high school teacher has cancer and the pilot was doing rides to help raise money for the teacher's medical bills.

I'm thinking about going, since Fifi is going to be there. Only thing cancelled here is the military support. The show is still on.

OH! I thought it was cancelled too! Are you going? Anyone else going to be there? Maybe we can meet up at the show.

Jim, great, looking forward to hearing more as the plans come together.

Chuck Gardner will be there as well with the Cavanaugh Flight Museums P-51 "The Brat III" and offering rides. Look him up and ask him what the umbrellas and that broom are for. Those questions rank up there along with one dragging his nails across a chalkboard to him... ;-0)

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.


The jet's doing there bump and grind didn't help matters either...

What was that dangling from the bomb bay, anyway?



Yeah there apparently was an oppsie. A luggage strap wasn't secured was the story I heard.



Years ago, I don't remember who it was but at the show in the valley, one of the bombers started there show pass, open the doors and bombs away, chairs, boxes and empty gas cans.

Curtis,

Tetons look beautiful in the fall. We live in Iowa so won't be back for a while but love your photos. Couple more of mine. Hope everyone doesn't get too bored with landscapes and stuff. On the bear, that was the last photo before moving the truck. I moved forward 20 yds, and he passed 20 yds behind. I was a bit nervous he was going to walk right on through.

Cheers All,
Dan

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!


I wish, those side windows are as clean as a whistle.
The B25 is owned by the Dutch Airforce Historic Flight, The Spitfire is owned by the Airforce after some mishaps and is now flown by a full time Airforce pilot those aircraft are being taskt by the airforce for promotional and remembrance purposes as well air shows.
The Hunters, there are two one single and one dual are owned by the Hawker Hunter foundation and are operating out of Leeuwarden Airbase and is being flown by Patrick Tuitert former airforce display pilot.

But i have to say the three main Air to Air photographers in Holland

1. http://aviationphoto.org/arnoud-schoor Airforce
2. http://aviationphoto.org/eric-vorstenbosch Airforce
3. http://aviationphoto.org/frank-crebas Civil

Are all members of the Isap organization soooo
And maybe there are some more but I'm not aware of that at the moment

Boeing 737 courtesy of the KLM getting an escort from 10 F16's, On board Kids from the High Flyers foundation.
Those Kids are all sick and getting a day out courtesy of the Air Force and the KLM they even got some time to spend on the Ground.
The Foundation gives sick children the chance to be a pilot for one day and able them to fly on different airplanes and helicopters all made available by volunteer pilots etc.
Very cool.

Wow that is something! Over here if you see any number of F-16s around a 737 it's not a good thing at all

Don, I like the colour shot best.

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

See you there. I forgot it was coming so close, and forgot to get my photopit passes, so I'm going to give them a call tomorrow and see if I can drive over and pick them up in person. Having the water available right there has been a lifesaver for me both years since I don't do heat that well.

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.

Jim, I think in one case Erich was talking about Dayton's Air show this coming weekend. I'm going to see if I can walk in and purchase them like I did last year since I missed the cutoff date too.

That's true !! To bad they can't do something like that over here and even if you could with the SEQUESTER ...... and advertised the heck out of it for 2 weeks .. the media would find some dumb a...es who'd go on TV to say they were really shook up and scared when they saw it pass over .. NYC or DC for example .......
