Great shots, as usual, Rob. Especially like the Flying Tiger-like shark's teeth on the prop driven trainer. I can't remember who the manufacturer of the plane is; do you know? The F-16 busting the sod in full afterburner is also nice, as is the chopper shot. Good work and thanks for sharing.
I really love those aircraft pics. I have never been able to do them like yours. In 1959 when I was 12, the local fair had a machine which would vend a nice color photograph of a military plane for a nickle. They were on heavy stock and I spent every cent I had on those. I still have them around somewhere. I love how those Herk's props all line up.
That crop duster is really low, can the pilot actually see the ground under him?
There are a lot of nice aircraft within easy driving distance but I just don't feel like it anymore. There are F-22s at Tyndall, F-35s at Eglin and Spectres at Hurlburt and the Blue Angels are probably grounded at Pensacola. I was talking to a guy just a day or two back and asked him if Eglin had actually ever gotten any F-35s and he said he had been watching 4 of them do touch and go's just the day before.
Good shots, as usual, from you, Rob. The dual seat P-51 is interesting as is the two-seat ME262. I didn't know that a flyable 262 was available; obviously, it is. The B-24 and B-17 are truly nice - not only nicely restored, but also nice shot. Good work, Rob. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks! There are apparently 3 flyable Me-262's...all replicas built by the Collings foundation. Messerschmitt bought one of the replicas and flies it in European shows. Someone mentioned the foundation has parts for two more!
