Fingers crossed, I might have a day job of sorts in a photo taking field It won't be the desired money being converted to noise, but can't be too picky can I if it pays.

Anyone going to either Flying Legends (I'll be there alone, probably on the "tank bank") or RIAT (I'll be in the Pimms Tent on Saturday with two sons-in-law and a brother-in-law)? Also, though not aircraft, I'll be at TankFest at Bovington this coming Saturday. Anyone going we could PM mobile numbers.

Thanks Jim, Laura, Brian, and Jo. That shot of Mike Goulian is probably my best of the whole weekend., which is OK by me.

Jay - I always enjoy your images of Audre and these two are dynamite.

To all MA2A members; Jay, Paul, Rob & I will be hosting the first of several contests this summer involving frying eggs on the sidewalk.

The greater Phoenix forecast for this coming Saturday is 115* to 118*. With any luck, we could hit 120*

Just back from a trip to the battlefields around Verdun, France. Not much aircraft-wise, but we visited the grave of Hamilton Coolidge, first world war fighter pilot and a friend of Eddie Rickenbacker
Hamilton Coolidge (September 1, 1895 – October 27, 1918), was an American pursuit pilot, flying ace in World War I, and recipient of the Distinguished Service Cross.

Coolidge was the great-great-great grandson of U.S. President Thomas Jefferson and the best friend of Quentin Roosevelt, the youngest son of President Theodore Roosevelt. Ham Coolidge and Quentin Roosevelt attended the Groton School together, attended Harvard together, and served together in the U.S. Army Air Service First Pursuit Group in France. They were killed in action within a few months of each other in 1918.

Coolidge dropped out of Harvard College during his senior year to join the U.S. Army Air Service. He was one of ten Harvard undergraduates accepted from a field of forty applicants for training at the Curtiss Flying School in Buffalo, New York in July 1916.

A private with the Aviation Section, U.S. Signal Corps, stationed in Miami, Florida when the United States entered the war, Coolidge was sent the School of Military Aeronautics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology on June 5, 1917. He embarked for France on July 23, 1917 and was commissioned first lieutenant on September 29, 1917. After serving as a test pilot at Issoudun, he was assigned to the 94th Aero Squadron, commanded by Eddie Rickenbacker, on June 16, 1918. He was promoted to captain on October 3, 1918.

On October 27, 1918, he was killed in action, his SPAD S.XIII taking a direct hit from a German anti-aircraft shell near Grandpré, Ardennes. He had eight confirmed "kills" when he was shot down. Like Quentin Roosevelt, he was posthumously awarded an A.B. {War Degree}, Harvard Class of 1919.

Last year they discovered, buried in the ground next to his grave (he was buried where he fell) the engine of his Spad XIII - you can see what I think is the attachment point for one of the exhaust manifolds in the photo.

Very interesting post, thanks for sharing!

Here is a pic taken in the Memorial of Verdun : not a Spad but a "Bébé" Nieuport.

Looks like the SQL Server is acting up, probably shock from seeing my face posted... Love the car shots, you really should look into aluminum printing. Wonder if Aluminyze ships to you....
