ONE-WING LANDING - This is the most remarkable demonstration of piloting skill and level-headedness I have ever seen. You won't believe it! - Note the brilliant flying of this German acrobatic pilot. Without one wing, he flew the plane on its side so the wing became a rudder and the rudder the attitude control--then just before landing, rolled to upright. He might have been too low to bail out. A super slow roll teaches you the way the rudder can keep the nose up while on your side. Hoover is a pro at this. Howie Keefe (of Miss America P-51 fame-rco) PS: Thanks to Joe Landsen for this one. Another one wing landing. It's not a model this time; it's the real thing. Again, you will not believe your eyes! CLICK

Wings Over Houston - Thunderbirds from Serious Amateur Photography by Jeff Lynch - Here are another two images I took last Saturday at the Wings Over Houston air show. The first was inspired by an image I saw on Moose Peterson’s Reno Air Races Begin post. The second image shows just how precise these pilots are during their maneuvers. These F-16 fighters were less than ten feet apart during takeoff.

Wings Over Houston - Leadership, Trust and Teamwork from Serious Amateur Photography by Jeff Lynch - Watching the Thunderbirds prepare for their demonstration is amazing.

Wings Over Houston - Thunderbird Close-Up from Serious Amateur Photography by Jeff Lynch - Here’s another image from last weekend’s shoot at the Wings Over Houston air show. This Thunderbird F-16 had just completed it’s takeoff maneuver and was beginning a vertical ascent so it was only traveling 200 mph or so. The more of these images I review in Lightroom 2, the more impressed I am with Canon’s EF 300mm f/4 L IS USM lens. The sharpness of this glass is superb and I’ve found almost no chromatic aberration or vignetting in the images I took.
