    What a treat for them to be on the wing for the Victory tow and be part of the celebration.

    Memories that will last a lifetime.

    The sun through canopy shot is nice.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Glad to help you relive it, Dawg!

    Yes sir, thats what it is for, everyone has random shots, and surprisingly there is always something interesting in the details.

    There have been some good/interesting contributions posted here, and I'm sure it helps uncle "Wayne" with website traffic flow.

    Never tried this before...inserting an image directly into the body of the message. It's a mosiac of Spirit of Texas. Kind of a cool program. Not sure this format will do it justice though...it's more for large formats/posters when viewed both from a distance and close up. If anyone is so inclined, save the image then open it in Photoshop, Affinity Photo or some other post-production S/W and zoom in.

    No problem young man. So, if full size doesn't impact or slow down anything I will start trying that.

    Growing up as a kid I watched "12 O'clock High".

    The B17 was one of my favorite WWII er. So when Sentimental Journey came to the Reno Air Races, it was my first chance to see and touch a B17 up close. I still smile when I see this old photo that hangs in my shop.

    I opened it with Photoshop. Interesting process, do you create a folder with all the photos that the program uses to piece this together?

    And like you said, viewing it from a distance as a poster then getting closer really is the way.

    Here's a link to the S/W I used. There are others. Essentially, yes. You select a folder containing images to be used to build the image, then you select the image that will become the mosiac. You have many, many option as to shape, size and number of "tiles" to used to make up the mosiac and you can select to use the same individual image "tile" rotated 90 or 180, mirrored, flipped, etc. I typically use either 5,000 or 10,000 images to build the mosiac.

    Always thought this would be a cool option for the huge canvas posters hung behind the Reserved Grandstands as you enter the airport. From a distance, it looks like an aircraft...as you walk closer you start to see that it's really 10,000 images of aircraft.

    If you load the S/W (it's free BTW), have fun! Some turn out really nice...others, not so much!
