No idea why. It comes up every time for me.

This weekend was the Helicopter Scale Masters at our R/C flying field.  Most of these are turboshaft powered, some electric.  AT first thought it would seem helicopters would be easy to photograph, but all that goes out the window when you try to keep the illusion of the rotor blades moving.  It becomes a task to keep motion blur at bay when shooting at 1/250 and lower which keeps the blades from looking stopped and leaving the viewer wondering why the machine isn't falling out of the air.

An Mi-8, I think it weighed 65 pounds:

The Collings Foundation are in town again, making the rounds of the local airports and filling the air with the sound of glorious radial engines... I took these photos with my phone as we were walking to a local eatery. The B-24 flew right over us. The B-17 not so close...

We had a nice day at the museum this past Saturday, so everyone got to take rides in the smaller planes, even my kiddo who has never flown before.  We were supposed to go to Oswego in Whiskey 7 for a Mother's Day pancake breakfast, but the weather decided to rain on our parade, and the event has been postponed.  But I did get some pics of Whiskey 7 in the sun, and the kiddo in the L-16.

Turns out she loves flying.

Yup, the smugmug seaplane photo worked.

As far as the 500 lineage goes, it was originally a Hughes design, the H-500. When McDonnell Douglas bought up Hughes, it became the MD-500. I am pretty sure that it was pre merger with Boeing when the NOTARs came out in the late 80s/early 90s. IIRC, Douglas moved the Hughes helicopter plant & folks from El Segundo CA, to Mesa AZ. I want to say that AH-64 Apache started life pre merger as a Hughes design as well.

Let's see if this works from my SmugMug.

 ..

This was taken at the seaplane fly-in at the Tavares Seaplane Base held in conjunction with Sun n Fun.

OK. On the bench:

One more work whirlybird from twenty some odd years ago...

 

 

When my younger brother left the Air Force in '88 and went to work for Boeing as a technical writer, one of his first projects was the NOTAR.

Badass! I saved these pics for a future build. Saw one similar over at the USAF Museum. They are just mean looking. Can't imagine how much ammo is in that belly...

In the pattern: 1/32 BaaBaa Black Sheep Corsair for a tribute build, Weird-Ohs Digger!

Missed the arrival and take off, but at least I got some shots while it was here.  Not something you see everyday around here.  AC-130W Hercules.

Going over to the VAC museum today with Route62 for the Veterans Day Open House. My K-3 is in the shop for a good cleaning so I'll be shooting film today. I have a roll of Fujicolor C200 in my ME Super. We'll see how it works out.

The Herc has invasion stripes too.

 

 

 

 

Nice shot.  I would do a kitbash of the Testors/Italeri 48th kits I have in the stash if there were ever a decal sheet with those markings.

Heard we had a Herc at the airport that was scheduled to do a pass for the start of the Bills game today.  So I headed over to take some pics, and to my surprise there was also an F/A-18 Super Hornet there as well.  Two for one deal!

The Herc has invasion stripes too.

Well, I'm back from Oshkosh. In 2-1/2 days I shot 1974 pictures! And I still had time to walk around and watch the airshow. Anyway, I've whittled it down to just over 200 images that are somewhat suitable for editing. I edited these two today to share with desTROYer in his Gloster Meteor thread.

I think I'm going to open a photo sharing account to post the images from Oshkosh in albums. For the last few times, use.com just hasn't been working for me.

Frank, I had a Canon way back, but since then it's been a Pentax SF-1, K-100D, K-5 (which was recently stolen) and now the K-3II and a K-5II.  I bought a DA 16-85 ED DC WR and the new 55-300 with the PLM motor to replace the older screw drive 55-300, what a difference!

We are having our usual fire season in California, I live near Sacramento.  Tried some sunset pictures tonight, might as well get something from the bad air.
