Bummer for RIAT attendees: the Vulcan wasn't given a demo slot and the team has declined to attend as a static display.

If the only flying Vulcan can't get air time at RIAT, they must really have a stellar lineup...

...or is it politics?


Steve,

this is the list of confirmed aircraft so far:

A 47-year-old pilot died Sunday afternoon when his plane crashed while performing in an air show at Stevens Point Municipal Airport, police said.

The plane was conducting aerial maneuvers during an aerobatics portion of the biennial air show when it crashed just before 12:30 p.m. into a wooded area about 1,000 feet east of the airport runway, Police Sgt. Tony Babl said.

Authorities were withholding the name of the pilot until his relatives could be notified.

Babl described the plane as a 1993 YAK-55M. The single-seat, single-engine plane was designed for aerobatics competitions.

Very interesting that several of you guys were at Oshkosh 2010. I was as well, but crewing on the F-4 and TA-4 that week. I've never had a more busy or nerve racked time at an airshow before! It was definitely a memorable experience on several different levels. Hopefully I get to go back some day.

Hi Ryan:

How are you man? As far as MA2A @ Oshkosh goes, 2010 was about the best year in my opinion...

I've been doing some planning prior to diving into my latest video project. There are so many options it gets pretty confusing and frustrating. The basics are pretty straight forward, I'm ordering a RRS Fluid Head, leveling base, and a fore/aft rail. After quite a bit of research I've concluded that Edelkrone has designed and built a slider system that has great features, so I think I'm leaning toward their products. Kessler's booms seem to offer some great options, for a reasonable investment.

Those decisions were pretty easy, the toughest ones relate to camera equipment. Does one plunge into the Cine capture world? I have the budget for it, but that road introduces additional complexity both in equipment and technique. One wonders just how different the end product would really be if the clips were shot with a "Red", or a C500 and cine lenses vs. a 1DX, my Canon lenses, a Zacuto Tornado rig and the tools mentioned above. Certainly the ability to shoot 4K would add a dimension, and those more sophisticated camera systems offer frame rates the 1DX does not. Of course, you can add even more mind boggling options by looking at fixed lens camcorders ranging in price from 2 to 10 thousand.

It's tempting to just default to the uber expensive Cine gear, but something tells me that, while it might be lots of fun, could over complicate the whole effort, and quite possibly compromise the final product. I'm sure someone with more depth in the field would know right off the bat what the correct course should be, One thing I'm sure of, you shoot better with gear and systems that you're comfortable with.

I'll figure all this out............. in my spare time!

Don't you just love the historical shots? We should put them all together and let them roll on the flat screen on HQ Thursday. We have certainly had a lot of fun together over the years, how nice!

Let me know if you have specific questions on cine stuff; both for gear and shooting techniques. I'm glad to help. I suppose I would be the resident cinematographer in the group.

I typically use either the ARRI Alexa XT or Red Dragon right now, but I've used just about everything else at one point or another.
