Two more, all photos taken through a blue plexiglass window. We are getting the kit to remove the doors on our Baron, so the pictures should get better!

King, missed you this year... Actually, totally forgot you'd be there with the plane! Probably walked by you 20 times!

Does the Baron have the same escape window setup as early Bonanza?

On those, you can pull the piano wire hinge and fly with the window out. Works like a charm and is what we did to get all the Hughes Racer Replica shots.

We were right in front of the Brietling tent.

Heck of a spot we got!!!!

I thought about the escape window, but we have the door removal kit on order.

King, window is a hellofalot cheaper and works a charm.. Once you get to TO speed (or a little below) the air totally ignores the opening and it's pretty calm inside.

If it's anything like a Seneca, with the doors of, it's a mailstorm back there at speed!!!! (go a little too fast and you're grabbing interior parts as they attempt to depart the airplane)

Not sure you're restricted with the window out like you are with the doors off either...

Might wanna give her a shot with it out and see how it works..


:dunno:

HA... reminds me of chasing a DC-3 in John Parkers Seneca. My first (and only) air to air shoot, to hear and feel the air reverberating in the open doorway sure got your attention.
