Re: LOG: NAS Patuxent River Airshow 2 Jun 2018

Thanks for the log. After risking my life asking a police officer whether I could photograph some of the gate guards (he reached for his revolver as soon as I started approaching him) and getting a barked 'no', I couldn't be bothered writing down the serials of the stored KC-130Ts. I would add the e...

Re: AirVenture Oshkosh 23-29 July

Hi Thermal, AirVenture isn't your regular airshow - it's a fly-in or a convention, so no one's really certain in advance what will turn up. Also, the EAA doesn't pay their airshow performers (they are all volunteers, although they do get their fuel reimbursed if they hold a commercial licence), so t...

Re: Phoenix AZ, Mesa, Chandler,Gila River,Goodyear,Luke,Buck

I only have slides of the DC-4s and other propliners at Chandler Memorial / Gila River, so in principle would like to go back and take digital photos. But what with all the graffiti on them, I'm not sure I'll bother...

Thanks for all those crisp, clear photos!

Re: Phoenix AZ, Deerfield, Scottsdale, Falcon field

Of course! I don't normally log in when I go through the forum, so I don't typically reply, but that doesn't mean I don't appreciate good photos!

Re: Marrakech Air show 27 to 30 April 2016

I don't believe mention has been made in this thread of a Gazelle shell/front fuselage in deep maintenance on display in the hall next to the control tower. Its c/n was 1936, so according to the Scramble database that makes it SA342L CN-ACM. The dataplate had 'CV' in the bottom right-hand corner, bu...

Re: Carson Helicopters grave yard - Perkasie Heliport PA

Excellent news that you were able to visit their storage area. I tried to do so in 2009 but wasn't given permission. Presumably because I asked on the spot - perhaps you arranged access in advance? On the other hand, I could've taken all the photos I wanted in the hangar, but didn't have a very-wide...

Re: Log Florida November 2010 - Propliners and Old Jets.

Like your airliners shots as well, invader26!
And thanks for confirming the situation in which you took the propliner photos. I'm glad you were able to combine a family holiday with some spotting (or the other way round :-)).

Re: Log Florida November 2010 - Propliners and Old Jets.

Hi Invader26, great report! I've been seriously considering returning to Florida over the Christmas break to catch more of those propliners before they all disappear, and your photos only make me want to go more... As to your questions: Daytona Beach: Convairs CV240 N295M, N7761, N12905, and N22913 ...
