Absolute top notch set of shots Jay super crispy... I hope they ask you to come back next year..


Pretty sure that's already in the works. They seemed pleased with what I brought to the table this year. Doubly so since I wasn't even "recruited" until I got there so I had no benefit of any ongoing comms leading up to this year's convention.

It was, um, "educational"

Well done Jay! Yes, that is always an "interesting" experience. I enjoyed shooting up there when my good friend Tom P and his Dad were running the show, less and less as that came to an end.

I had pretty much figured I probably wouldn't attend again, until Chili asked my to take him. We already have it set up, Citation Jet up and back, a suite at the Hilton and a slew of parties during our stay. Chandler will get to see OSH in first class fashion. I think I should set him up to camp under some wing on a broiling/freezing OSH night just so he knows the real experience!

Oh, he definitely should experience the North 40!

I just see this as an evolutionary step. Hang around long enough and people will either let you in or tell you to go away. Since the latter hasn't happened up there yet, I figure the former was inevitable!

A few folks were laboring under the assumption that I'd been shooting for EAA for a couple of years now.
Um, nope.

But yes, it's not the same environment it once was. There's hope and I don't think it will ever be as bad as the Hightower tenure, but it still needs some slag knocked off the edges.

Taking nothing away from the EAA photo staff, because they are wonderful, they are not you!

As I prepare for the onslaught of 4K and higher res media, it appears that I'll be moving back into Mac Pro Tower territory. I have no delusions about becoming a post processing whiz, but I think I need the horsepower just to manage what is to come. I spent the morning with my guys at The Apple Store speccing a unit that should make the lights in the neighborhood dim. The RAID array will be a 128 TB GTech system for starters. Apple suggests a Sharp 32" 4K monitor for the system.

A bonus, my Mac Pro will be built in The Lone Star Capitol, Austin.

Went into the wrong folder on my Mac, and ended up with this staring back at me. 90% sure I didn't post this last year. From RIAT 2014, Tiffie Time:

It does look like a little chord showing on the left main, doesn't it?

The tire is OK as long as the tread depth meets the tolerance.

Jay,

Loving the L-19 A2A shot. Perfect light.

I think I may need to look into the practicalities of going to OSH next year.

How many nights do they let the fireworks off?

Jim,

You may want to take a look at this article

Although it's now 7 months old, at the time Dell were using a Sharp screen in their 32" monitor at half the price.

As things have run for the last couple of years, they do two evening / night shows with fireworks and a wall of fire at the end on Wednesday and Saturday of convention week.

Great L-19 pic Jay. I've logged about 1000hrs and around 6000 glider tows in L-19's, they're one of my favorite airplanes. A ton of fun too fly, never get tired of seeing them. Anybody with a license really ought to seek out an opportunity to fly one.

With both front windows folding up against the wing, and both rear windows folding inward and up to the ceiling, I've often thought they'd make a pretty reasonable but slow A2A platform, especially since the rear seat can be configured to sit facing rearward.

Thanks again,
RK

Thanks Mark. I have seen information on that monitor. I just sent an email to my Guy at Dell for his opinion.
