The whispery clouds really add to it Mr. Wilson.

Gee, that should be an Apple Maverick default desktop photo!

Glad you like the shot Wrei. When I come back down, I'll let you know and you can come down and shoot with me for a day. It'll be just like shooting air to air with Glenn.................except much, much slower, and a lot less exciting

It's not a rumour anymore - F-35 coming to RIAT in the UK
"We are delighted to announce that the Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II, Joint Strike Fighter, will make aviation history this summer with its European debut at the Air Tattoo this July.
The Air Tattoo will be the first time the aircraft has been outside of the USA. It is our understanding that three examples of the F-35B, which utilises the short take-off/vertical landing capabilities once employed by the much loved Harrier, will be based at RAF Fairford for the event.
Two of the aircraft will be US Marine Corps examples whilst the third will be an RAF aircraft currently based at Eglin AFB, Florida. Demonstrating the 'hover' capability among other impressive manoeuvres, a single aircraft will take part in the flying display on all three days of the show."
And will, presumably, then stay for the following week, which is Farnborough International

Since the last couple of pages are kinda OT, I thought I would sneak this one in. Bronica SQA 6x6, on Hp-5+ film, you know that stuff where you get a fresh sensor withe each shot.

Dang it!!! I have two friends in Wanaka watching the air show. Zim and a high school friend. I don't care about the weather, I am jealous!

(I told them they need to take me to take pictures of them on their fabulous vacations...he is a 777 airline pilot.)

If they do, I hope by then the problems with the software, the helmet, the tail section bubbling, and it being a fair weather plane despite its nickname "Lightning" have all been fixed.

Cool...strangely enough still doesn't appear that they'll be doing a flying demo at the Joint Reserve Base...where we know they already have them :P

I need a sword carrier, Wrei. You up for the job next time?

The weather yesterday was overcast, cold and windy. The weather today was variable: the sun peeked through from time to time and the mountain backdrop was gorgeous, but the airplanes are mostly up above the mountains and backlighted against the blinding white softbox in the sky. I'm still downloading today's CF cards or I'd post something.

I'd love to visit NZ. Your photos are spectacular and show the real beauty, Zim.
