Myself and Rob Turchick (YipDog) also have just a pinch of video production experience as well...

Wonder how the "Thunderbird Rules" will play out at Oshkosh this year...
This was #7 on a courtesy call back in 2010

Wow, love that one Lady Jo! Some trick, shooting it and being in it!


Yeah! Erm...

I could be wrong but I _think_ it might have been the lady of Alliance that you always talk to, who I gave my camera to.

Here's a video about doing an unusual air to air formation. Katsu Tokunaga shoots three very different Dassaults:

First time I poke my nose into this thread in 7-8 months, and I get smacked right in the eyeballs with that biplane. Attaboy, Glenn!

Hey Rodolfo! You've missed a ton of killer stuff by everybody. Hope you're not busy for the next 2 weeks! Please report your airshow plans so I can plan accordingly as well.

As you were typing that, I was going back to page 3951 and two drop-dead beautiful captures of "Spirit of Alliance" (one by Maestro Beckman, one by Erich Linder), because I may be 220+ pages back, but I fully intend on covering that territory at some point!

I am not, thank the Lord, able to devote the next two weeks to catching up. I've been swamped before, but the last 8 months have been ridiculous. The rest of 2014 is already full -- and I mean full, as in "not taking one more gig" -- and I'm booking into February 2015 already. I'm speaking at six international family-business conferences this year, and surprises notwithstanding I should start a four-year term on the Board of Directors for FFI (worldwide body of consultants and advisers to family business) this October.

That, or God forbid a major crisis, is the only thing that can keep me off this thread for awhile. I miss you all, but I'm here in spirit. As for airshow plans, the only thing I'm fighting tooth-and-nail to keep on the calendar is Alliance. And even that is iffy, since I might have to be in Rome at that time. Webesee!

Anyway: Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you. Our Lord loves you, and so do I! Glad to be sharing at least some part of 2014 with y'all.

And if I could get some prayers this week, please pray that I don't mess up the interview I've got on Wednesday. Thanks!

Not sure if any of you aviation buffs are aware of this, but there is currently a mission underway to support the D-Day 70th Anniversary events which will occur in Normandy in two weeks. Whiskey-7, a vintage C-47, was the lead ship of the 37th Troop Carrier Squadron, dropping elements of the 82nd Airborne Division near St. Mere Eglise, France in the early hours of June 6th, 1944. Whiskey 7 will participate in the 70th anniversary commemorations by dropping members of the Liberty Jump Team over the original D-Day drop zones. She left Rochester, NY, where she is the centerpiece of the National Warplane Museum. last Thursday. After making stops in Maine, Goose Bay Canada, Greenland and Iceland, she is currently in Scotland, and will visit various locations in the UK and France over the next several weeks. You can track the progress of this historic journey on their website at:

http://www.rtn2014.org/

I had the pleasure of taking a 1 hour flight on board this aircraft last summer, along with my dad, who was a WWII paratrooper with the 11th Airborne in the South Pacific. Images of that journey can be found at this link;

Bringing this back to the fore, because I just heard a story on the CBS Evening News about Jim "Pee Wee" Martin, who parachuted into Normandy in 1944. Laura, he's from the Dayton area (Xenia, specifically).

I Googled him and came across articles that included a story about what was supposed to be his last parachute jump in 2010, when he was 89. That one was in Ohio. Well not so fast, he's going to jump again into Normandy later this week. Pretty amazing.

I also came across this Flickr gallery of some of Jim's WWII photos.

As an aside, Whiskey 7 will be featured on the CBS Evening News broadcast this Wednesday night.

Colin, Jay, and Laura... thank you. I'm delighted to "see" you all as well.

I may actually get the chance to see some of our British contingent in real life soon, since I have at least two trips to the UK this year. I'll be in Ireland 6/18 to 6/29 and in London 6/30 to 7/8, combining a business trip with a family vacation.

If Daniela, the kids, and I can break bread with any of you, please PM me so we can discuss!

Thanks a lot, Rodolfo (and welcome back, if only briefly): you cost me the 90 minutes I just spent wandering through the MA2A pages around pg. 3951 and reflecting on memories of HQ Thursdays past and (hopefully) future. Good times: a bunch of great people, plus airplanes and photo gear. What's not to like?

Your family vacation this year is a little to far away for me to drop in on you, like I did last year. But we'll find a way to catch up soon enough, I trust...

That was the first big air show that I had the 800mm for. Sure drew a lot of attention. Must be why Canon gave me such a good ($11,887.95) deal on it. While the price was no deal, the fact that they snuck me the first production model to land in the US was appreciated.


800mm... you could shoot into the next county!

Dear Laura, you are already on my prayer list due to the anniversary you have coming up this month, so a little extra can't hurt! Best of luck with your interview, they'd be crazy not to hire you, you're nothing short of amazing.
