    Hello Colbourne,

    Close. It is two Yak 55 aerobatic planes that have been joined by a new center wing section, and with a General Electric CJ610 jet strapped under it for good measure. They call it the Yak 110 (get it, Yak 55 x 2). Linked below is a video about the build.

    Quite a Pilot managing 2 Radials + the 1 Jet. I wish they would make Reno. How about another Class for that type?

    Thank you Bill and Will for sharing your adventures to Oshkosh.

    The yellow plane on floats I think is a Stinson 108-3 (I can't remember which pic I posted, might also be a Cub. I'm in spincycle thrash mode trying to get a car ready for the Monterey Historics in a couple weeks, on top of work, on top of trying to get pics processed. I'm starting to go kinda brain dead.) Yes, the light was really nice at the float plane base. The reason they tied the anchor buoy around the prop was so that the plane would weathervane into the wind. There was another reason but I can't think of it right now.

    The Corsair shots were at sunset, there were some epic ones to shoot pics during. Yes, those corsair pics are some of my favorites that I shot so far. I've got more good ones, but they are on another card.

    I'll have pics to post for the next 6 months. I have a lot to process and there should be some really awesome ones.

    Correction, the blue and yellow plane on floats is a Piper PA-12 Super Cruiser with a radial on it. It took me a LONG time to figure out what it was. Honestly, I think that was the coolest float plane there. There was also a Stinson 108-3 in all yellow that looked really good.

    Bill,
    That last shot of the Super Chipmunk at night is awesome. Nice work. Well done with the F22 (not) on the tanker. I've got a similar shot but more head on as I was at the end of the runway.

    I'll try and get some more pics posted this evening.

    Thanks Will. I can't wait to see more of your pics. This thread has been a lot of fun. I think it is pretty neat to see the same subject from a completely different perspective or in a different style.
