Hey wow madpilot!  Congrats on your graduation and commission!  ^5555555's all around!   |:)\ ::bow::

...and yes, that is cause for a celebration!   ::drinking:: ::drinking:: ::drinking:: ::drinking:: ::drinking:: ::drinking:: ::drinking:: ::whistle:: ::whistle:: ::whistle:: ::whistle:: ::whistle::

Good luck in your ventures as an officer in the Guatemala Air Force.  If my travels ever take me there, I'll be certain to look you up.  That isn't necessarily a long shot either.  Last year I went to Costa Rica, Panama, and Colombia.  Who knows where I'll go next?   ???

A few pictures from last weekend. Bagotville (Québec, Canada) air show. When we were traveling back, my wife told me: "next year, we have to go to Oshkosh"  ;D

Congrats Madpilot! Cool picture with the Gray Ghost! |:)\ I wish I could see one of the YF-23s in person myself. Coolest sci-fi looking plane this side of a Blackbird.

spacer, cotejy, Busdriver: Cool pictures!

AWESOME, Busdriver!

Imagine me in my little CW Cessna (we started calling her the "Chickenhawk) coming nose to nose with this monster ? ? ?

At least you're kinda sitting on a balcony !   ;)

This one is for you Mike and all of you other F4U fans out there. This was taken at this years Flying Legends at IWM Duxford on the Saturday.  Sorry about some of the quality more vids and photos to follow.

How about one through the Video Camera.  Go to full screen and you can see the Moose cow and calf in the pond.

The wildlife here are so used to hearing snowmachines and outboard motors that they don't even look up as my little 2 stroke goes over.

seeing as this thread definitely needs a bump, what I did on the weekend, fell out of a balloon :-)

Nice!  How the heck did you support the camera though?

Here's a short clip of me playing in the snow.

Hi Phil,

you have the most amazing landing-strip that I can imagine! That must be great having a plane in your backyard and the airstrip directly behind. I have already watched a load of your videos, incredible!!

camera stabilization is reasonably easy, put the cameras on a helmet :-)

I just need to keep my head upright, and remember to press the (waterproof) micro-switch, visible at the front, with my tongue every time I want a photo. That was the setup I had for night jumps, for the balloon-jump I did not have the two external flashes mounted on the helmet which makes it a lot lighter and easier to keep upright.
