    What a day yesterday. Hot and sunny, with significant aluminum overcast. Got to meet and speak with some of the veterans of the 325th FG "Checkertail Clan". They had a good amount of aircraft mix and the flow went better than in previous years with less pauses between acts. I say Wheels at the veterans area. I was trying to herd all the 325th guys together for a photo, but couldn't make it work, so I didn;t get as much time to chat as I would have liked.

    Warning, this first post is going to have quite a few photos. I will be out there again today with my son to teach the next generation of photographers. He'll be toting the D-50 with the 70-300.

    Yep, Wheels, the Togercat showed up Sunday morning just before the pilots briefing and flew in the afternoon warbird program. The big gaggle at the end was awesome! I had my son out for his first airshow shoot. He was so excited when all the warbirds kept coming down the taxiway. T-6s (5), Nanchangs (4) Navions (5), B-25, C-53, F6F, F7F, F8F, SBD, Zero, Corsair, Albatross, P-38, FW-190, 2 P-51s, 2 Spitfires, P-40 and a P-47. These all went out and were flying at one time. Talk about getting a warbird woody! ;) It'll take a couple of days to hear right again and get all the dust from the run-ups out of my pores.

    As we were leaving, I asked Jacob if he had fun. He said YEAH! He said his feet hurt. I asked if his arms felt like rubbery noodles from holding up and swinging around the camera. Yep. Tired and thirsty? Yep. So I said, "Let's see, exhausted dehydrated, sore but strangely content at the same time. Welcome to the family business, son.".

    I have a ton of shots to go through, but here is one from Sunday that I really liked.

    Nice shots Eric.
    The ones Jacob shot came out well too. Once he gets a little better with the prop blur you are going to have some serious competition.

    Thanks guys.

    I know, wheels, he has a good eye. I set him up with auto for the first go round. I'm going to start introducing him to shutter priority very soon. He has a steady hand and the lens is considerably lighter than mine.

    I got an invitation to the VIP chalet for the Apple Valley show this year (some of my photos are on their poster). The airshow coordinator e-mailed me last night and asked me to bring Jacob along. I was also asked to submit one his photos to the Pacific Flyer. So he may get one in print, on his first shoot! Sheesh!

    I like it though. Once he gets the hang of it, we'll be able to provide that much more coverage to events, a double threat!
