    Tyson, Great to see yours and others' photos. Believe it or not I actually had time to take some while running around!!! Have shots of B-52. We had our own "private" tour on Monday. By the way,as we were out on the flight line we had a little air show...saw Glacier Girl take off, saw the Raptor fly again...etc. This was a momemtous air show that impacted many lives. As I was involved interviweing the veterans--it was very moving. Plus the backdrop was great ( we were using the T-Bird VIP room).
    Anyway,
    all of us at WoW agree that this was a huge success and gearing up for next year. great to meet some of you finally.....Randy, see Tyson again, etc. I'm in a "let down" mode now, but if I can figure how to post these pics I have I will send them along.
    Wayne, Love you! Glad to see you. You are the Man!!!

    Wayne,

    Well, I think I've done this right. I've attached a few of my pix from the weekend. I'll leave the stuff-in-the-air to you long lens guys. I'll stick with moving pictures for my sky stuff.

    I've included a shot of Glacier Girl from Wednesday night when we were still setting up in the Thunderbird Hangar. Lt. Col. Mike Chandler in Thunderbird 1 from Sunday's show. Then I got shots of Dago Red, and Ridge Runner when I was out on the runway with the ribbon cutting folks for Sean D. Tucker. Finally a shot of Voodoo just before Bob Button taxied out to the runway to leave on Monday.

    I know you don't like video captures, but I have a shot of Sean D. Tucker as he came by to cut the last ribbon. I can't post that if you like.

    What a great weekend. I'm already counting down the days until Avitaion Nation 2005!

    Jeff.. I'm assuming these are not out of the video camera?

    Good stuff, really rich color, I especially like the GG shot..!!

    Post the other thing you mentioned (Tucker) lets see it....

    I'll have to change the settings on the board to accept large files as well as the proper extensions for movies.. I spent an evening with Cobra (Mark Kallio) helping him figure out which SQL & PHP settings needed to be changed in order to make it work and damend if I can remember one detail of what we did...

    I'm going to look forward to each day as it comes! AN 2005 will sneak up on us as it always does but we've got PRS and RNO in between!! SnF and Oshkosh too, if I feel up to it and can afford the trips!

    Connie, one of these days, I'll create a help file for the technically challenged among us

    When you post a message, scroll down a bit, you'll see a button marked "Manage Attachments"... click this...

    It will open a dialoge box, or multi boxes with a browse tab on the side of each one.. this will open in a separate "window" that should pop up above the page your message is on. Click on the browse tab and navigate to the exact image you want to upload, then once you find it, double click it and it will then be in the box that you clicked browse on. You can put in up to 10 images by doing this over and over on one pass... but when you have the image/images you want in there, click on upload images.. wait while it uploads. If successful, the box will reload with your images listed down on the bottom section of it. You can then close that upload box, finish your message and click submit.. If all was done correctly and all that, the images will show up in the message body as the little clickable thumbnails..

    It's easier than it looks but... the image dimensions and file sizes have to be within the limits or you'll get an error message on the upload window that you were using to get the images up there....

    Image physical size (in pixels) max width= 800 pixels
    max height= no limit
    max file size 185kb

    file types, .jpg .gif .png

    Hope that helps

    It must be quite a zoomer!
    Thornton actually has used an F-5 "boat-tail" (the ass-end of the jet where the stabs and engine nozzles are) on at least one of this T-38s because it has a drag chute housing on it which the stock Talon doesn't have.

    The Perot, Jr, T-38 appears to have a stock T-38 aft fuselage (it doesn't have the alternate-air louvers that are on the F-5) but possibly also has an F-5 boat-tail (note the square-shaped container at the base of the rudder -- this is where the drag chute goes on an F-5).

    If someone has some more clear photos of the tail/empennage/nozzle area it would be very easy to tell.

    Perot's airplane also has a custom cockpit which is not mil-spec, a sorta glass-cockpit setup.

    Wayner & Tyson: A+ photography. Great use of the available lighting. Always love the "Back cross key". I am hard pressed to make a choice...but the F-14 against the rock cliff with the heat signature is huge with me. I had some photo opps in Nam as a USMC combat shooter (Choppers, fox-holes, & F-4's) the smokers were the rush.

    Tom, huge thanks! I don't really try for those long shots because of the darn heat wave distortion that usually plagues long lens, long range shots... I was not even thinking about the fact it was sub 70 degrees on that day, I just wanted all I could get of the Tomcat's last demo, so I banged away....

    Glad you liked it, this week, more than others, it was a hard choice what to put up as POTW, you made that choice for me..!

    Thanks, wish you could have made it out!
