I’ve been doing stuff. Some of which involves taking pictures, most of which does not. I’ll talk about the picture stuff, since that’s why I have this blog/web/thing.
I managed to catch the Deamlifter at sunset a few days ago and I think I got some appreciable shots of it. I’ll let you decide:
I also totally scored when I finagled my way onto the restoration facility for the Museum of Flights B-29 last Friday. The MOF’s B-29 project is looking great, the guys volunteering with the restoration are top notch genuine craftsmen, and a bunch of nice guys to boot. Thanks go to Dale and Terrence for the warm reception and the fantastic tour. The guys were nice enough to plug in the turret system for me and I got to play with that for a few minutes. That was a treat.
I also got to walk through the Boeing B-17 in the same building. I can’t say enough about the restoration work done on these aircraft. It’s truly a labor of love to all involved and it really shows when you are up close to the aircraft.
The highlight of the past few weeks was an air-to-air photo shoot I did for Mike at Silverwings Flying Co. in Olympia. Mike was a great guy, and was very accommodating. I was in his friend Scott’s PA-12 and we flew a quick sortie. I hope I got some shots he is happy with. It was hard getting the camera out the window from the back seat, particularly with my fat ass in the seat, but it worked out.
