Rare Bear returns from a test flight just after sunset, trailing steam from the boil-off cooling system.

Hey J.

Yes, it is a nice place to hang out in. As far as message boards go, where else can you go to see a thread like this. The conversations are enlightening, as well as cover a very broad range of subject matter. Whenever you want, join in the discussions and please do post more images when you can.

Regards, Colin

I don't think I've ever posted this before. In2007 we went on a package holiday to Corsica - somewhere I've always wanted to visit - the weather was abysmal, it rained enough to need an Ark. However, our charter airliner on the way out and back was this!!

Did it have Aces High playing over the intercom during the flight?

More importantly, was Bruce flying it?!

Very pretty Seabee, J. Welcome!

By the way, we are at the F1 race this weekend. Photo opportunities are much reduced from last year. They built a lot more grandstands and corporate suites this year which blocks sight lines, particularly around turn 6/7/8 area. You can watch from turns 1,2,8,11 and 19 but any shots you take are going to be very fency. Hey ho.

That's too bad Jo, wish I could have given you my credentials. Wish I could have used them myself! Too much going on here on a couple of fronts to make it this year.

Decided to chase jets at KPHX last night and the night before. Was trying to get the moon crossing since everything was lined up BUT the clouds killed that idea. Still a cool sky.

Welcome, jfrickman! Yes, this is a great corner of the Web in which to spend some quality time and post some quality aviation photography.

Love the retro Continental livery, YipDog; great light and a nice sky, too. Did you notice the filth around the forward door, presumably left by the jetways?

I have a curiosity I'd like to have satisfied: Are most of you regular photographers on this thread also pilots, or just a lot of you?

Thanks! And yeah...most of the commercial jets have that issue. Need baths!! Ha ha!

I'm an RC pilot! Don't know if that counts. Will have a "full scale" license someday! Just love aviation since I'm a USAF brat and grew up around aircraft.

Rob, love that retro Continental shot.

Jim, did you say a Stearman and a Tweet? Talk about having something for whatever mood you're in!
Love the sunrise from a few pages back. There's times I don't know what impresses me more, your skill with a camera or the strength of your faith.

Ernie, I'm not current, but have commercial/instrument rotorcraft/helicopter and private/instrument fixed wing single engine land ratings. My first solo was in a glider, but never did get the rating. I suspect there's quite a few pilots on this thread.

Side note to Al,

Missing hearing from you! How was the balance of your trip in the US? Thanks for making the effort to get to Texas, loved having you with us for Thursday and AFW 2013. thanks also for your kindness, loved the Crunchies! I look at the beautiful box you gave me very time I'm at HQ, found a very special use for that nice gift. You know the way now, you're welcome always!

Yipdog, I fly RC too. All I have left now is one sailplane, a Great Planes Spirit 100. My all-time favorite from among the models I had was a Great Planes Cherokee 40, with flaps, powered by an OS .48 4-stroke.

I've learned that someone nearby has an ultralight, and now I have it in my mind to see if I can cajole him into a photo session so I can contribute something photographic to this thread.

Ernie,

There are several pilots on board.
Here's a shot of me taken by Chris, and then a shot of Chris taken by me.
Fun times.

Lifelong pilot, here: Glider/ASEL/AMEL/AMES/Comm/Instr/CFIG, but all I fly these days is a two-seat LSA in VFR conditions.
