Kevin, I guess the wind is always blowing at the higher altitudes, but do you prefer perfectly calm air or a little breeze to nose her into when setting loads?

All I need is one more Good Deal and I'll be out of Business.

I'll stick with the old and they can stick the new.

You just don't see F-4 phantoms flying in the US anymore.

This happened yesterday before I flew home. I shot this from our ramp in Howell, Michigan. I shot 2 videos of it.
It is the B-17 Yankee Lady. She never flew in the war but fought lots of fires before being restored back to warbird appearance.

For those who really like start videos, I shot this in Phily last weekend on Saturday.
When the hissing sound stops it indicates the bleed valve has closed. There is a bleed valve that exhausts some of the air from the compressor to aid in starting in effect dropping the compression ratio to help get it lit. You can hear the second engine start later in the video. These are all HD which you can select with the little gear icon to the lower right of the video.

This was not at an air show.
I just happened to find just the right location to watch the annual qualifications.

Today work directly crossed directly into trucking. Today we did installs of new air conditioning and HVAC systems to the roof of the Cummins plant in Jamestown, NY. I spoke with some of the plant people and they said they made 12 and 15 liter truck engines there. ISX series being one of the main engines produced in the plant. I horsetraded for some hats and took pictures while the other pilots flew. I have been a spare pilot for the past 3 days while we broke in another company pilot on this aircraft to get him experienced.
