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?

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.

More great images, y'all!!!

I went out shooting this afternoon/evening with a young man who has the makings of a good photog. Before we left the location we were shooting, I had to get a shot of my wife's ride. Had a bit of help from a passing motorist...

Chandler came out yesterday to build one of his models at his bench in the hangar. The wind dropped off from 30 to what seemed like reasonable around sunset and he was hot on a Cub flight, so we launched. John in the tower called it 12 @170, no biggie. We blasted down the runway for about 10' and popped into the air.........John then said, "Hope you have your belts tightened, because everyone is telling us it's really rough.." Just about that time I felt like we had just penetrated the wake turbulence of a BBJ. Even Chandler, who is all about tummy tickles and unusual attitudes, asked me what was going on. The atmosphere was really churning. On the roll I saw a broken layer to the west of the airport and thought we might head up on top of that to watch the full moon come up. A couple of minutes in the air and I was focused on getting us back down on the runway without 7PC becoming "my insurance company's airplane". Made one of the best landings ever, taxied to the hangar and went to dinner.
