    Default Nellis AFB - Las Vegas Air Show Aviation Nation Photos

    Finally!

    Somehow, the program that will process the .nef (raw image data) files that is the mode I have been shooting in got corrupted and I did not have a replacement. Anyway, long story short, by hook or crook, I manged to get a secondary proggy working that will let me open up a few of them to see what's going on so I could share a few.

    For those of who know me, going to the show has been a lot harder on me than I'd expected! I don't have a lot of energy and felt pretty crappy this AM so did not make it out till JUST when the Unlimited division was getting started.

    Earlier in the day, the mixed demo was run with Al and Randy Goss flying Warlock, along with a couple of jets and John parker and Scotty Germain in his new racer "Unleashed"

    I'm about to fall asleep here and need to get some rest so I can get out early tomorrow and not miss the first demo.

    Thanks guys. I'm here but ... sort of not here. I managed to wear myself down so badly dragging through the airport on Thursday, then running about here and there on Friday, my body's almost complete lack of muscle paid me back on Friday evening and Saturday with almost a complete inability to move...

    So, no photos from Saturday from me But... I went across the parking lot with the WoW crew earlier this evening for about a half hour and managed to talk with a lot of neat people, the show is a GRAND success from all I'm hearing!

    Sort of strange to be here but not be there

    Mebie next year, I'll be back up to speed!

    Time for me to try to sleep some more, see ya all on the flightline!

    Hey Wayne,

    Just got back from Nellis. Sorry I missed you on Saturday. Twas a good show, though I missed the WoW HQ. How'd it go, Jeff L?

    Glacier Girl was a highlight. Beautiful!

    Good crowd, too. They said 400,000 on Saturday.

    I just wanted the racers to race! (Don't we all). But it was nice to see everyone relaxed with no midnight engine changes. Even caught sight of some "Bears" on top of the Dago trailer. Hmmmm...

    Hope you're feeling better!

    Dave

    Time to stir the pot. Notice if you will, in every mutiple plane photo that the Red plane is in front. Could it be that it is the fastest?? Was at Reno. . . . even with the pylon cut Bring on the flame!

    Too bad 'out in front' and 'fastest' don't always equate to 'winner', eh?

    Woulda, shoulda, coulda. A win is a win, no matter how you slice it. So is a loss.

    Besides, maybe Skip is just getting rusty on his formation flying, and feels more comfortable being lead...not quite up to speed on flying in close to another airplane as wingman. Air Force pilot...don't you know.

    Ahh yes but one must never forget, that when comparing the fastest to the lastest, the relationship of the angle of the dangle when squared by the cropizoid times the length and girth of the salami contained within the nomex must always be computed.

    And when talking the mythical Italian sandwich delicacy, one must also be wary of conjuring visions of battles yet to be fought.

    It is all, after all, the eyes of the fingers which land on the icons of the magical keys.... after all...

    Photographic chicanery at worst, Photoshopped at best. Lets agree that the Italian Stallion was in front, and that even with the cut, the Rare Bare finished behind the Big Red Plane. We were pullin' less than 125 inches and had more power to spare. Winning by fog is a new one Or was it by delaying the race so that the BARE could get go juice. I heard the bottle was empty before the end of the second lap Love this board, ain't it a great place to lurk, but come on. . .deep down inside, you know who the fastest plane is and it doesn't need help to do it
