That's Edwards AFB with its dry lakebed runways and, yes, the Honda test track.

Jay, I like the image you were asking for feedback on. It looks like the first a/c is actually the photo ship attempting to do a 1930s air-air photo flight. The only thing that slightly confuses me is the blueish light coming from the top right and seen on the a/c. Was there a break in the overcast letting in blue skies?

Steve, I like the tilted image too.

I second what Lynn says and that is absolutely one beautiful flying machine. Now, I have to go back and stare at the second Laird shot some more.

The Coast Guard did a rescue demo with a basket pickup during the show. The winds here were 14G25, and yet they were absolutely rock steady during the hover. I could barely see any lateral movement in the frame even with the telephoto lens. These guys are good!

Ar, here we are at top again... My name ain't Zim, but that doesn't stop me shooting through airliner windows....
These were somewhere between Portland and San Diego.

Yes, they're really, really good; but I also wonder if they get GPS/autopilot help in the hover?

Jon Melby and Super Dave Mathieson over Madras.

Good point. It looks like the autopilot does indeed hover, but can't find if it's coupled to the GPS. However, even when he was slowly translating to/from the pickups he was extremely stable, and that was a pilot flying. Either way, you don't get to do that job without being an extremely good stick.

Did somebody mention mountains? This is the Absaroka Wilderness in southern Montana, between Livingston and Red Lodge.

Beautiful Zim, but I'd want four engines, FL410, and a half dozen "Find Me Spots" over that stuff

After a ridiculous amount of research, unless Jay or Yip-Dog come up with reasons that this isn't a good tool for me, I'm pre-ordering this unit from B&H in the next couple of days......
