Nice look, in a Star Wars kind of way.

But what's with the huge font for the pilot and crew chief? And I've never seen a "Mr." On the side of a gray jet before...

Must be part of his call sign. After seeing I don't know how many pics of this plane, I just realized why the cockpit looks strange: no HUD. So much for being observant...

Mr. would designate Hemo as a civilian. Since it is flown by LM test pilot, they may still designate the font size.

To find out what impresses fighter pilots about the F-35, DefenceToday asked Lockheed Martin test pilot, Elliot ‘Hemo’ Clemence, to explain what it’s like to fly the F-35, and compare its capability with legacy fighter aircraft. ‘Hemo’ is well qualified to comment, even though he wears a Lockheed Martin flying suit, having spent most of his flying career as a US Navy test pilot flying F/A-18 Hornets, including missions off aircraft carriers in combat operations over Iraq and Afghanistan, and as a aggressor pilot for the US Air Force. He has also flown Super Hornets, and was one of the first pilots to fly Australia’s Super Hornets off the production line.

Nice Legacy! Does that blow away the SX300's ?

Well, he posted 335mph in that race! So; probably... Says the gear doors pop open above 250 (he's on that case), and apparently he can't use all the power in his engine or the blade tips will cavitate... so there's probably more in the hat, but how much is anyone's guess.

Nice carrier shots! Got more? I bet you do...

Thanks for the info, Wrei. And what did Hemo have to say about the F-35?

The chap I met birding in Cyprus had a very large and sturdy but also incredibly lightweight tripod which he said came from Germany and was made by a company called (sounds like) Feisel. I can't find them - has anyone heard of them?

Yes, it is Feisol. Here is a link to their European website: http://www.feisoleurope.com/

Been around for a few years now, pretty highly regarded. I think they were the first company to produce quality CF tripods that were on a par with Gitzo, and for a lot less money.
