I'm going to sit down with Ross in a couple of weeks and get his impressions on the Bell line up before we make a final decision on rotor wing aircraft. He's a big Bell fan. We'd be in the 429XL neighborhood.


My wife would say Eurocopter. I would say Bell

Can't go wrong with either one I'm sure. Would consider myself very blessed to have either in the hangar.

Psssst, Curtis... Those are Nanchang CJ-6s. Dihedral bend in the wings and square tails give it away; Yaks have rounded tails.

Or the owners can paint subtle clues on, like this guy ;-)




DANG .. 2 years in a row I've done that ....... lol

Thanks for pointing it out Jo .... I've only glanced at the folders so I guess I should go look for some YAKS tomorrow to see if I have anything ... ;(

Looks like it Tim, but a long ways from home if that's true ............

I was surprised to see how many identical tail numbers there are ..... guess I was thinking they were like N numbers, but nooooooooo

It flew down the runway in Easton, Maryland this past Saturday.

I'll look thru my folder .. came out of no where out of the sun so I'll see if I got lucky with at least one shot to get an ID on a N number .........

Any Flickr Users here?

I ran across a website called www.gosportwallpaper.com that is piggy backing on Flickr's search engine and it's offering thousands of images as free downloads.

Just an FYI...

Jim,
very nice. What type of cabin outfitting would you be getting, and would you be able to open the windows to slide a lens hood out just a few inches

Cabin will be executive plush leather captain's chairs and bench. Roger that on the big sliding window, most likely a custom one cuz I'm not into restricted vantage points.

Dang, been up to my eyeballs in various stuff. Please remind me of the particulars where I need to call. I'll take care of it tonight.

Edit for TOPP: An image from last weekend, my first event where I was the sole official event photographer.

This P51-D I didn't see coming did a low level high speed down the runway .. from the tail number and what I think is part of the N number .. plus the fact that it is just a wheels up and * she's * here home base, I'm thinking this TAIL NUMBER 473420 is NL7722C registered to the Pamela Marie LLC in Arlington, Va


That one is owned by Andrew McKenna, bought from Jack Croul this year. It's a beauty. The late Jeff Harris at the stick.

Did you all catch the story about the WWII Vets who came to DC today to see their memorial? Apparently they arrived to find it barricaded, along with signs explaining that the government shut down closed the memorials. Seems that the boys who took Normandy, at 80, still had the hutzpah to remove the impediments and enjoy their memorial. God Bless 'em!!

The words "Go Ahead, Make My Day" come to mind when I see that story...

Jonathan, was the Courtland show the one where the Corsair hit the paint bucket when he landed? If so, I was there. Too bad that Courtland quit having the enormous shows that they had in the 90's. At least they are trying to do something again, although I don't think they are having a show this year.
