Yes, O Crownie Mate...  the news on those fires is just heartbreaking. 
It's such an enormous area, and what horrible conditions! 

Very, very tragic indeed.   :'(

May that all end soon.

Indeed despite our constant friendly rivalry with Australia, Our thoughts are with those who have been caught up in that inferno. it appears completely hellish. :(
It is sad to think that the amazing sunset I photographed is likely to have been caused by the smoke particles from Victoria, several thousand miles upwind across theTasman sea.
A NZ based heli - logging crew is flying a Mil-8 Helo across the Tasman now, with a 5000 litre Bambi bucket onboard. A small but practical contrubution in such a situation.
If it was supposed to be easy, everyone would be doing it!

WHADDUP CHICKENS?!?!? I went to the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum this weekend and was finally able to get some pictures of the 4 engined goddess that makes its home there. Although it was hard to get a clear shot with all the airplanes in the way, but I'll post some. I'm going back again next weekend so maybe it will be easier to get more pics. This is only one of two still flying in the world. She was built here in Canada by only beautiful ladies (Better than those British built ones  ::) ::whistle:: ;) )
Enjoy!

I promised to upload this picture to Soccermom and finally here it is. It's scaled 50% and then cropped but otherwise not edited, I think it's a great shot, and I didn't even know it turned out like that until I saw it on the computer when I went back inside (I'm standing just in front of my room in front of the house, the lower diagonal line is the roof).

Hi guys,it's been a long time since i dropped some pictures in here,isn't it? so I'll post some new and old stuff i wanted to post
 a long time ago

A police jetranger named  Lahav


A AH-64 Apache buzzing around


Probably my best shot of a UH-60 Blackhawk


Two AH-64 returning from a patrol


This is the first time i see something like this- a CH-53 escorted by UH-60




A classic shot of a UH-60


Not shopped! i swear!


This one is almost three years old!


Sunshine through a TV


A few months ago i was in a music festival called In-D-Negev,here is a little taste of what was going on in there

The tent-there was about 700~1000 tents!


Kites


Bigger kites


The official monkey of In-D-Negev


In the sunset


Look at all those people!


There were 2500 tickets sold,that is 2,500 peoples in the festival,everyone goes around four time a day for the bathroom,that is 10,000 visits a day,and the amazing thing-they were cleaner then the bathroom i got!


And of course - planes!
 P-92 ultralight




Fishy fishy fishy fish


Some juggling


And some music (in this case-Pits,i got their disc)


Not In-D-Negev related; this is probably my bets shot(s),it's the moon with the camera's shutters open for 3 seconds,it's made from nine shots. note the halo ring around the moon. (this is intentionally a link,the image is  HUGE)

Sorry about the size difference between the images!
