You should have seen Gunny's face when JR told him, over a BBQ plate, that he wanted us to find our two favorite Mustangs and buy them asap, so we could just go to fly in's together and have fun. I think he's still pinching himself!

HaHa...I bet he looked like he had the measles!

In other news, I just added another improvement to the farm...

(By the way, shooting this barn, I found the TSE would have helped greatly thanks to your quick tutorial!)

Well, we had over 3 days of steady rain last week, then a trip to the coast and then I got sick. Gotta mow the weeds now!

DD will be the platform if it all comes about, at OSH and back here in The Lone Star.

In a bit of a damned if I do damned if I don't scenario so I am choosing the wiser path and not plunking the change to ride DD to OSH, otherwise I would be right there with ya.

In anticipation of the results what type of subjects will you guys be having up there? If you are allowed to say.

That would go well right under the pilot side glass too. Capt. Jim "VP of Fun" Wilson Perhaps lens silhouettes in place of bombing missions for each A2A.

Nice shot - he should put that on his wall

Thank you Nick! One of the facets of all this that I'm really looking forward to is the ability to actually meet and spend time with a number of you.

OSH shoot was scrubbed this morning. Might happen elsewhere at a later date.

Yup, that's none other than my Buddy Bryan Martin. One of the good guys for sure!

Glenn,
I couldn't agree more. I'd be curious to hear from you and Jim about fill flash - Paul seems to have used it in a number of shots and I'd like to know to what extent it blinds the pilots of the target aircraft, or if they barely even notice.

Thanks,
Gero

Ive popped my speedlights before and the pilots hardly noticed..but havent regularly used it. I dont run the strobes in the photo plane to keep from blinding the pilots, but as long as the pilots are expecting it....its a speedlite though, not Claes Axstl's rig!

What Glenn said. Aside from Paul's incredible pioneering talent, Paul does not know he's Paul Bowen, which is a very impressive and endearing quality. Paul's been a great friend for years, he's simply the best.
