Yeah, the difference between swinging a 500 f/4 up to your face 100 times a day, vs. doing the same with a 100-400, is enough to make you take out a gym membership. Hypothetically, of course: I already had the gym membership.

You're killin' it, J-A: great stuff.

Mind translating the nose art for us?

On the starboard side it says 'De 2 C's', after the two men that were
credited with most of the effort in bringing this aircraft to Europe and
restoring her (although I do not recall their full names)
On the port side it says "Sarinah" and "plesiran 'neer?". Sarina is the name
of a girl. "plesiran 'neer" is a mix of Indonesian and Dutch, meaning as
much as "Are you still having fun, Sir?"

Well there you go Zim. I should have remembered that from the article that I read. Don't you think Rodolfo's portrait should have been something with cool lighting and his Tesla as a slightly soft (DOF) backdrop? Very powerful statement could be made, subliminally.

The photo with the C-130's reminds me of my first ORI (Operational Readiness Inspection) in the USAF. We launched our C-141's for an air drop. Some how they missed the drop. The word we got was there were a lot of happy Mexicans driving US Army Jeeps somewhere in Mexico. We were rescheduled for another ORI. (They were suppose to drop over Ft. Bliss, near El Paso.)

Looks great. One RAW file, or a five shot series?

Got great news from Austin today, I'm credentialed for the USGP in November. I'm a little disappointed that I don't get to test my skills through a myriad of chain link, but I'll just have to readjust. Might have to weaken and get a 200-400 before then, darn that Beckman guy!

congrats on the creds Jim. I'd say given the fence and the distance we did rather well there with the Moto GP boys. Fun time had by all

Lady Jo, I just ran across this absolutely wonderful image that you captured in 2011. Could you find it in your heart to send me a full res version? I think it belongs on the wall at HQ in a place of honor.
