That's something that is very difficult to impress upon people who want to be involved in air to air photography, or formation flying, it just takes a second of lost concentration/distraction to turn great fun into disaster. It happens repeatedly, and it happens to people who are really good at it. I always feel like people think you're a jerk when you tell them the realities, and it's a question that I get asked a hundred times a year.

Sounds like the 210 lost a wing or a horizontal stabilizer and spiraled into the bay, survivors not likely.

Not everything at Red Star wore a Star of any kind...
There were a couple of GlassAirs and a LanceAir as well.


Friday was very grey with fairly low ceilings so some images will simply be a little "flat"

From what I have heard, the F-35 might have broken just sitting there

Every time the owner of the flight school where my Catchers are at calls me I cringe when I answer the phone. Luckily its never been warranted and the calls were always nothing. Til today - Dont have a lot of details yet but a renter put one of my Skycatchers in the dirt, collapsed the nose gear and prop struck it... Thankfully nobody was injured. But it'll be hard to make hours when its sitting in the shop with the engine torn down!

Zane Adams thanks for posting the reminder last Friday about the airshow. Saturday took the wife to her first airshow and she loved it.

Sunday afternoon (a little after 1:00) we're driving past Addison airport (KADS) and there's a F15/F18 sitting at the end of the runway. Do 2 illegal U-turns, to get next the fence, and as I row down the windows the pilot starts his takeoff roll. Once he lifted his nose it was a 45° climb and he was gone. Wow between the noise, the 'bass' rattling my chest and the orange ring of fire inside the engines that was as impressive as Saturday's show.

My F15/18 spotting clue is the tail and neither the wife or I can remember if tail fins were straight or angled.

Pretty much sucks Wrei!

Glenn,
sorry to hear of the Skycatcher mishap. Glad to see, however, that you don't miss a beat. not a single one.

outstanding capture on that last one.
