Default Best shots of 2006

Hi everyone,

Thought this would be pretty fun to try out. I went through about 2500 pictures taken last year, and picked out a few as the "best shots of the year." So let see your shots!

You need to re-size your pictures to 528 x 396, or at the most, 724 x 543. Takes forever to download even on a cable modem.

Not mine but it was the coolest thing I've seen at our field all year. This was the first and last flight. It was flown once and now hangs in the owner’s office. 12-foot wing. 4 G-62's

I believe so, I'm not positive through.

About the speed, I'm sure its not your guys connection. I have my site linked to sites all over the net. As of last night I have used 6Gb's of bandwidth, I have a lot of traffic right now. Thank you for the suggestions, I just might have to do that.

Each picture takes me an average of 6 seconds download.

Is that a real B-17 or a model?

Here is a pretty cool shot of an electric helicopter being flown in a warehouse. Weather isn't a factor indoors!

The helicopter is a T-Rex. It looks much closer in than it really is.

Don't have many pics of the planes (dang, I gotta remember to bring the camera with me more often), but I have plenty of shots of the cars (since I go drive them specifically to take pictures).

Here's one I like; it was taken up in the Reno/Lake Tahoe area during the first week of January.

No, it's not mine. It belongs to a good friend. The plane is a Yellow Aircraft powered by a Brison 2.4. The photo was taken at the Ft. Worth Thunderbirds field with Benbrook Lake in the background.

It also could be flying over the English Channel with the English coastline in the background.

Here are a couple of scale electrics. Photos were taken at the Great Southwest Toys for Tots flyin in December. The first plane is a Sonic Liner and the second is an F9F Panther ducted fan. The Panther is tiny, probably not over 12" long. It flies like a bat outa he--.

The weathering on the Zero is unreal. I have lost my share of planes. One even on it's maiden. But loosing the B-25 had to be sickening.

Yes it is a real B-17... Aluminum Overcast did several passes over Chatfield during Warbirds Over The Rockies. All I can say is beautiful. It was the best part of the entire weekend.

B17flyer,
Hey Brian! That's a great shot of MY corsair...I can't remember seeing that before. Lora and I won't be coming to Top Gun this year (next year for sure). How's tricks in Florida? Tons of snow in Denver...have only flown twice since December! I miss flying formation with you! Come up to Denver for the Warbird event in June and let's go fly!

You should try dropping in on a walmart. Down here they have one of those fighter plane toys that look like models. And one was of your "princess" p51c.
