    I've done a couple air to air sessions where the subject pilot really liked to get in your lap but that stuff is CLOSE!

    Pressure to get the shot? Noooooooo!

    "I want you in the pace plane tomorrow" was how Jimmy Leeward greeted me the day prior to this shot.. Obviously, weather almost scrubbed the flight, it was surreal flying with the clouds so close above!

    "Pace plane pilot, have the photographer open the canopy" I'd just asked Gene McNeely if I could open it and he'd said "wait" With Jimmy's request, he relented and pretty much grunted to me over the intercom that it was OK. I reached to my left to grab the canopy lock and pulled it back to open position. When I looked back to my right, I swear Jimmy was truly almost in my lap! Not the photo above, it was prior to the join with rest of the gaggle. I'll have to dig back through the archives one of these days!

    Jimmy Leeward was a very special man.. He treated me like I was the Walter Cronkite of Air Racing.. truly loved that man!
