Nice shots, Phantom. I need to hang outside the parking lot for a bit.

So far I haven't been outside, but I've heard 2 A310s, and a Dash 8. Just perfecting my hearing on the different types of a/c.

You lucky stiff, Shawn! We were supposed to have a Classic Air Rallye at the Canada Aviation Museum this weekend. Unfortunately, I got screwed over by the weather and having to work midnights (I just woke up 1/2 hour ago). I think I'm off when VWoC has their 'Open House' in September.

On the plus side, I did have lunch with 9 Sabre pilots yesterday afternoon out at the Hylands Golf Course. You talk about some interesting stories!

A sampling from the Vintage Wings of Canada Open House. I snapped over 800 shots. A few of which turned out. I met up with martin_sam_2000 and he said he snapped over 1,000.

And finally...

Wing Commander (Ret'd) James Francis 'Stocky' Edwards, after his flight in the dual control P-40. W/C Edwards is Canada's highest scoring surviving ace from World War II with 18 confirmed victories. A true gentleman.

At the Fly-In in Simsbury, CT (mostly private planes and an old car show) on Sunday, we got buzzed a few times by an L-39 Albetros (Czech-built airmed trainer). Quite low, and slow, we got a good look at him, with huge red stars on the wings. We heard a few people think it was "some kinda' MiG!". I kept my mouth shut, don't want to look like a k-i-a. :salute:

Saw the shuttle yesterday. It was diverted to JRB Carswell due to weather. We were working on the T-line when the tower notified us that the shuttle was inbound, next thing we knew there it was. Talk about front row seats we were about 300 yards out when he touched down.

Sorry about the picture quality, it was taken with a cell phone.


This was taken by my friend Jack who is smart enough to carry a camera with him at all times.

Caught a contrailing C-17 heading south over Wellington, New Zealand, on Sunday. Pretty rare thing to see in my neck of the woods :crying2:



They come down here to support the US Antarctic forward base (Operation Deep Freeze) at Christchurch International, and head down to the ice themselves in support of Antarctic operations.
