For some reason the 6th Special Operations Command of the Air Force wanted to test STOL capability of the Polish built M28 Skytruck and selected Breakaway Airpark's grass runways for this....dont ask me why but it was pretty neat. They were landing this thing very short! Impressive..

Jan Arie, Eric Stroud bought Glenn's Tweet. Randy is advising Eric. His operation supplies military honor fly overs for a variety of occasions. Couldn't think of a use that would please Glenn more.

Thanks Bud...

We've seen those Spook PZLs here in AZ from time to time. Funny to see a crew in shorts and Hawaiian shirts climb out on shut down.

Could you tell if it was carrying two reg numbers? Some of them have 3" digits on the outside of the booms with much smaller digits on the inside of the vertical fins.

Just wonderful Jay. You need to begin thinking about a book.

Didnt see that Jay - Only a number on the outside of the boom. Didnt get too close though - they came, did about 8 tos and landings and split. never shutdown or got out.

they were landing as short as I could land my 172 - amazing.

Just a question thinking of getting me a 70-200 4.0 I think it the most easy lens to use when photographing out of a plane would like a 2.8 but price wise the 4.0 suits better .
And i think quality wise it's also a great lens any thoughts ??


For the money that lens has great iq as seen here. Never took one up on an A2A so I can't say for sure if the heavier lens would work better or not. In theory it should though, but you have to weigh the cost vs reward on that.

+2 - I'll buy the first copy sir.

Here is another Bronco image. Challenged and inspired by a fellow AZ shooter to try some in-camera aggressive framing. Not my comfort zone, but fun to step outside my normal SOP and try something different. Having great light helped encourage my creative experimentation

Jim, Eric is one of the nicest guys I've ever met. He is a huge supporter of Collings and I've always enjoyed every visit with him. He loves our little A-4 and even has a project jet of his own that will get restored by one of the best eventually.

Steve, I followed your advice and re-did the B&W shot. It is definitely better this time, but I'm still working on the fuselage as I'm not quite happy with it. Let me know your thoughts on this effort if you don't mind.

Ryan, are you familiar at all with what the various color filters do in a B&W conversion?

This article is some pretty good reading on the subject:

Your image of Betty Jane would benefit from using some color filters to enhance the contrast. Most notably the sky and the red stripes.

Just toying around with a vintage look tonight. C&C free for all on these.

And Ryan,+1 for more contrast on Betty Jane. She's not washed out per se, but its definitely light.

It's the little things with me and I just love the paperclip rust stain on the Mustang Brian!

Does that advice sound familiar, Ryan? Great minds think alike, they say...
