Right Eddie...
I like the 2nd one a lot but that head on, it's just badazz.
Kinda like a transformer plane, it lands and then stands up and starts walking.


I always wonder what the "driver" is thinking while these maneuvers go on. Has got to be the "rush" of life.. a sort of "warp drive".!

Douglas, those shots are incredible. I agree on the head on, it's very cool.

Based upon the popularity of my B52 over the Vietnam POW reunion at Ross's Circle T Ranch a few years back, I've been asked to do the reunion this year and "FiFi" will be the flyover aircraft. The planning will begin in the near future. I'm hoping that this scenario will give me a couple of bites at the apple rather than the single opportunity the we had with the B52.

Thank you gentlemen!

I envy you guys in the Pacific Northwest for the snow-capped mountain background, not something we have here.

More from yesterday's show at Jones beach, NY. The lighting was not helping sometimes.

I just returned from having breakfast with todays "Old Guard Honor Guard" at 0500. Before chaos ensues with the arrival of the White House fiasco! A media shame for sure!

Jim, the sound of the B52 overhead miles behind us was a rush! The ground trembled...a sense of momentary relief.....the vapor trails priceless... then all hell reigns loose...Hope you get the opportunity to visit with these pilots and crew. Especially the ones that delivered their "payload" in war!

I looked for you among the tv clips of the air show Douglas. I did not see you but I knew you where there!

Great post Ray!
It is a Holiday to 75% of our population!
Thank You!

PS yes the edit of #2 leaves the Sergeant of the Gurad "walking" on air. My fault.

Dan and Ray,

Great posts! Wonderful way to honor those who gave all.

Douglas,

You envy those in the Pacific NW, and we all envy your skills! Just superb string of photos; the F35 head on is awesome, but all are in a league of their own.

Dan

PS - Arlington is one of my most favorite memorials in DC. What it stands for, the history and those who are laid to rest there. Just sends chills up my spine. To read the stories how the Union commanders ordered soldiers be buried near the house first to make it un-inhabitable for the Lee's to return............... and that Lincoln and staff felt this was an appropriate way to wage total war. Truly a leason in human history for all; for all our accomplishments as humans we continue to have a lot to learn.

Got my first chance to photograph Air Force One last year, glad to have found a small gap in the trees as this was an approach to 10R at CMH which is less than ideal for spotting arrivals on that runway.

Dan, do you know what section that last photo looking down the hillside is from? It reminds me a lot of the hillside above my uncle's grave, although I suspect that is unlikely.

Just read an obituary of Major Brian Suhl, who had over 2,000 hrs flying the SR-71. It included this story from one of his books:

“We were the fastest guys on the block and loved reminding our fellow aviators of this fact,” Major Shul wrote.

Major Shul often recalled a radio exchange with air traffic controllers monitoring the ground speed of planes within their jurisdiction as his aircraft screamed 13 miles above Southern California: “I heard a Cessna ask for a readout of its ground speed. ‘90 knots,’ Center replied. Moments later, a Twin Beech required the same. ‘120 knots,’ Center answered.

“We weren’t the only ones proud of our ground speed that day,” Major Shul recalled, “as almost instantly an F-18 transmitted, ‘Ah, Center, Dusty 52 requests ground speed readout.’ There was a slight pause, then the response, ‘620 knots on the ground, Dusty.’”

Major Shul and his crew member couldn’t resist asking, too. “‘Center, Aspen 20, you got a ground speed readout for us?’ There was a longer than normal pause ‘Aspen, I show 1,942 knots’” — or 2,234 m.p.h.

“No further inquiries were heard on that frequency,” Major Shul recalled.
