As much as we hate fire season here in AZ, it does bring out the unusual stuff sometimes...
BAE 146-200 converted to "fire bomber" at "Willie" back in July:

Matt and John broke the west deadline, they flew outside the boundary of the course. You can't fly inside, or cut a pylon as it is called, but you also can't fly wide and go outside of the course.


Ah right. I hadn't realized there was an outside boundary as well. Thanks.

Nice write up about Reno - glad you guys had a good time. Reno is a special place in September.
Sorry I did not get a chance to introduce myself, it's not one of my talents. I don't even say hi to Tim most of the time and I've known him for a few years years now.

They had some cool stuff over on the east side in the Heritage Display Area.



That's ok, even the folks I did know over there (photographers, that is) I only saw briefly.... I guess everyone was busy ;-)

And yes, there were some lovely things up at that other end.

If someone where to paint a P-51 like this now ... could you imagine the discussion.



But, to repaint Clay Lacy's P-51 as anything except "as we know her" would also be a shame.
Anyone who went to the Air Races in the 70's like I did remembers Snoopy in the back of Clay's P-51. He did win in 1970, not sure if Snoopy was GIB during the race or not.


I have ordered some special aircraft decals in 1/48 and 1/32 scale of Clay's plane also 1/48 scale Jelly Belly and Red 49 N335J in 1/32 scale for some future projects...

Running between assignments, being chased by the light, I had to take a 15 minute detour to catch a few last minutes of someone's first day at ballet. I am never sorry that I scramble for this stuff. I think I have put the "Dad, you don't need to bring your camera in......." argument once and for all...............

B&W for me; the colourful things under the tail are distracting otherwise. Although in B&W I'd lift the exposure a bit.
