Holy Mackerel! I listed the D800 and sold it in 60 seconds. There are a half dozen people lined up if it falls through. Gotta love this forum!

Love the 'Ace in the Hole' decal on the T-Bird tail Zane.

Yikes, Jim's VSI is pegged, I don't even want to guess what that rate is! Looks like fun though!

Zane, you're making me really regret not staying in Texas an extra week for the Houston show.

Hi Erich,

We did five or six descents from 10,000'. I had everything strapped down and stuff was still flying off the seat, including me. It was plenty aggressive for me, not knowing who I was flying with.

We did a max performance climb to 10K which was pretty brisk because we were light, then the fun began. Don't believe I would have had much interest in going vertical in a Caravan .

Believe it or not, that pilot used to keep a few pens sitting by the throttle and they never moved during those descents. I never rode down with him, but he was smooth and pulling positive Gs the whole time. Of course he could only sustain a dive like that for a couple seconds, but it was fun to watch.

That plane has since been upgraded with a different engine upgrade package... Texas Turbines Supervan 900. Better looking nose than the Blackhawk, I'd say. And a few more horsepower.

Zane, I agree, WOH was great time for all. Record crowd made for traffic jam but weather was wonderful. I even got a picture of the photo booth pros hoping to catch a few fellow "FM" members. I have not had time to upload pictures to my computer much less this site but I will. My fingers remain crossed that some came out.

I've been MIA for some time. Catching up the couple of weeks worth of posts since I last visited has been an absolute blast. Huge number of very high quality images, loads of different subject material, contributions from all point of the compass – talk about drinking from a fire hose! Ladies and Gentlemen, THANK YOU.

My absence was in part, caused by not feeling so good and diagnosis of same. Looking back, I've been slowly loosing ground for about 18 months / 2 years now. Feeling permanently tired, total lack of energy, sleeping for England, taking afternoon naps – you get the picture. Turns out that my red cell count is way too low. Blood tests so far are negative for any of the nasty stuff – so I've stopped worrying about that. Had several heavy dates with the other sort of Olympus cameras – full on sword swallowing and drain clearance! All negative for what we where looking for – but a couple of “extras” turned up and have been dealt with. In the meantime I've been taking iron tablets like mad (oh, and doing my best to reduce the local stocks of Guinness). Sadly, no improvement in the two months so far – but no worse either. So we keep going as we are until the end of January – when another blood test will kick off the next round of whatever.

On a brighter note I had another good result in a camera club competition last night. It was a monochrome print competition with 53 entries. I managed a dud, third, and first – so very pleased with that. Here are the first and third - the third is a repost of a previous colour image.

Nick,

Nice Concorde image. You've done well there given the constraints of that hangar.
