It's our "Monsoon Season" here in AZ and last night, Mother Nature kind of went "Bikini Atoll" over Phoenix...

One frame from the previous time lapse that sort of got lost near the end...

I thought the same thing before even reading your description. Crazy cool display of power.

J-A Great shots from Duxford Legends, especially like the mustang pair.
Sure was hot, probably the hottest I can remember.

Great landing shot of the P40, the last few shows i've been in the 'naughty' field and sure miss the take-off/landing shots from the duxford side.

Jay,
that last shot is the beauty of doing a timelapse with such weather, especially later in the day where you can slow the shutter down to get a bit of blur like you did on the fountain and clouds, but still capture a razor sharp lightning strike.

Well done, and hope to see more of these from you.

Gero

Living within 25 miles of Browns Ferry Nuclear Power plant, had I seen a cloud like that, I would have expected warning sirens and a speedy escape in some direction that the cloud wasn't going to. Very nuclear looking.

Dear Sir Donald,

It's so nice to hear from you following your recent computer difficulties – tricky customers those on / off switches – and so cunningly disguised too, with words like “Power” and “On” - all very confusing.

Now you know very well that I did none of the bad behaviour detailed previously. Everyone knows that lady Grey is far too gracious to mention such things in a public place such as this. Might I suggest a little more study of your “Creative Writing For The Older Gentleman” course material might be in order?

Regarding “.....make the vehicle secure against rouges and vagabonds”, I should point out that doing so would have made it impossible for you to drive your own car.

Regards,

Slow Nick.

(Former Butler to the nobility and gentry. Oh, and single day “minder” to Sir Donald Grey)



Mr Johnson are you inferring that I was telling some untruths and masquerading as Lady Diana? Shame on you sir. I would never step so low as to render my honour and reputation in tatters.

Firstly, my recent computer difficulties was caused by a miscreant rodent that decided to up and die in a most undignified manner, leaving my computer incapacitated until after its funeral and subsequent reincarnation.

With regards to the events of Friday evening that Lady Diana so eloquently and succinctly described, she did refrain from mentioning several of the other alarming and strange events of that evening; We are still perplexed as to how did the statuette of the Goddess Venus have its head exchanged with the garden gnome? And how come the initials ‘NJ’ were deeply scratched on her left buttock? (I refer to the statuette's left buttock, not Lady Diana's)

Can you shed any light on how my zimmer (walker frame) became lodged high up the English Oak tree that you seemed to take a fancy to?

It took ages to untie the ‘I love the Rolling Stones’ banner from the TV antenna especially as we didn’t have a tv antenna in the first place.

Lady Diana has asked me to pass on to Mrs J her deepest sympathies and to say that she fully understands.

Respectfully yours
Sir Donald

To all: Lady Diana & I would like it to be known by all and sundry of the immediate vacancy of Under-Butler with the prospects of being elevated to that of a ‘gentleman’s gentleman’ and companion. The prospective candidate must be of exemplary character, able to look after a gentleman of repute. Be of sober habits. And above all, have a sense of humour.

A special thanks to member, Laura, AKA Night Owl Cat, for showing me around WPAFB and Fairborn, where i was stationed in 1957. I cut my visit a day short, due to a JW religous convention near the base, and my hotel was ful of the noise makers. Laura a class act, and a wealth of avation, photography and computer information. If given the opportunity, see that shes included in your aviation and photography activities.
Thanks Laura

Nice Legends shots. I saw on Facebook that Hinton Jr. was flying the C model. He keeps this up he may get more time than his Dad in P-51's.

Had to travel north to Ennis/Waxahachie to find the water filled holes Lady Jo!

This one was even deep enough for a boat apparently!
