But I need a host; photobucket won't do these pictures justice. I had a Nikon D100 with a wideangle lense and my dad a D200 with a fisheye lense. What a great, once in a lifetime experience.

Transferring them to Fieroloki now; they're big files so watch out lol.

You didnt even bother to ask if i wanted to go?

It wasn't "Texas Raiders", was it? I've been aboard that one years ago. Looking forward to the pics, sorry but I don't know how to help you host them.

No this was "Nine O Nine". It was pretty sweet. They had a B24 and B25 there as well.

Were they returning from a bombing run directed at the illegal immigrant support marches down your way?

Was it on Aluminum Overcast? I had a flight on that B-17 just before 9/11. Worth every penny of the ~$400 I paid.

I was going to "ride" that one last October, but backed out due to weather.
I'm going this year, I don't care it went up 25 bucks, it's worth it.
These magnificent machines won't be flying much longer.

MiG29 flight -->
cm.bell-labs.com/cm/cs/who/ken/mig.html


Back at treetop level and 500 kmph, Vladimir took the control and said he was going to show me level acceleration. We were light by this time with 900 kg of fuel left. We had started with 4500 kg of fuel. It was the most amazing part of the flight, but not very spectacular to write about. We simply went from 500 kmph to 1000 kmph in five seconds at treetop level. The only thing I could think of to describe it is the scene from Star Wars. "Go strap yourselves in. I'm going to make the jump to light speed."
