I was honored to fly in a missing man for another great aviator we lost earlier this month. Here's a short clip from that flight.

cambyses, welcome to MA2A, home to the best aviation thread on the world wide web. You have some nice shots, but in my opinion, they have a blue tint to them, and the Corsair looks too blue to me. It should be a Navy Blue instead of what I would call a neon blue. Perhaps, changing the white balance might help. My processing skills leave a lot to be desired, and I am viewing these on a monitor that has never been calibrated since I have had it, so take what I say with a grain of salt.

Seattlebruins shots look too blue to me as well, but all of the other posts with images look fine.

Regards, Colin

You are right on the money Colin. I notice that effect occasionally from some of our posters, just a difference in monitors.

Weston's baseball game was in perfect light this evening. Isn't it cool how we love having our cameras in our hands regardless of where we are? What a neat thing to have a passion for, the variety is virtually endless.

This reporter was a bit too close when tanker 911 (or is it 910?) dropped its payload.

Hmm...took it straight from the YouTube "share" window.

I'll try again with an unshortened link:

That didn't work, either.

What was that King Air doing? Flying interference for the KC10?

The King Air is serving as a lead plane for Tanker 10. The heavy slurry bombers generally have a lead plane guide them to the drop zone and King Air's seem to be the preferred platform. Every year they hold a "lead plane" training school at Willie for these pilots. There were at least 20 King Airs there this year.

Tanker 10 was working Willie a couple of years ago and over-filled the canoe. On take-off, it was leaking badly and inadvertently slurry a bunch of cars in the extended stay parking area. I'm told it cleaned up without too much trouble

Kind of what I figured. Thanks for the info Jeff. Those tanker drivers really earn their money. Can you imagine horsing that aircraft around at low altitude, loaded or otherwise?

WX in Texas is absolutely perfection, hope you all have a nice weekend wherever you are!

Jim...every time I see that 10 doing a low level I am in amazement. I spent a couple of thousand hours as a copilot(First O) in them early in my career and when asked how it flew...would say...like a dump truck that glides very well. Hard to lose altitude, felt massive (as opposed to other heavies), yet easy and a lot of fun to fly. Hang some flaps out, get slower and you have your dump truck. I have to admire those fire fighter 10 drivers..

OK Jo and Zim, I must be dumb as a post because this high dollar DJI and I are not forming a beautiful relationship. After a half hour this morning in a huge open sports field where I couldn't hurt anything (but myself!) I packed the darn thing up and tossed it in my car.

Start up and lift off seemed normal, then it acted like it had a mind of it's own, full speed diagonally with little to no recognition that I was attempting control inputs. Maybe I need to do the whole calibration regimen all over again. I'm getting a little bored with bouncing three grand off the grass over and over. This morning had me reconsidering hand recovery, at least as it pertains to "challenged" pilots. I have several small bandaids on my forearm where it managed to bite me. All in all, not enjoying the creative effort with my new toy yet.
