HOLY SHNIKES.....I would love to learn to fly a copter let alone THAT ONE! hehe After that event my cousin and I used to argue what was better at combat a copter or plane (I know now after a lot of years) they both have their place ....He eventually got his private pilot licence (plane) and well I didn't. On to more fun things. I agree with you on the photography thread we need one for posting personal greats or just greats. Maybe you should start one sense you are the guy with the camera and Ill just tag along  :-)

Ya, that was the place. 
If you have a favorite bird, I'll see if I have any shots from this year or other shows.
A few more from that day.
These are cut down in size quite a bit.  The full res. are better.

Those look great. I guess I missed a good show. Well as afar as planes go I'm pretty easy I like bi-planes and tri-planes, flying tiger I think it was a P40, But usually the older the better and a radial engine a plus. The GeeBee racer was a funky plane I have liked sense I was a kid as well. I need to see if I have any plane pics anywhere to post up. I know I have some from the Smithsonian but I will have to see if there is any that came out worth posting.

All I can say is WOW! I had Blue Angel models when I was a youth after seeing them on TV. That is a great picture. Nothing I have will match those in flight photos. Now I didn't take this one ( lol my dad wasn't born) but I like saving pics like this planes trains or autos...

I've always been a bit partial to the old Grumman F2F and F3F.
I think there might have been a little help from the Granville brothers, in their design.
Not my photos below.

There were a few surprises.  It was a bit quieter than I anticipated.  I also expected it to be bit drafty around the waist guns.  It wasn't bad.
Effort to moving the waist fifties wasn't has hard as I thought it would. 
Construction is more in line with smaller general Av. aircraft, and not what most would expect.

He was fine.  I made a large print of the one photo, and gave it to him the next year.
Wish I would had made two and got him to sign one for me.
