    Yep, taken with my D50 and a 70-300VR. It was really cloudy and I figured most of these would not come out well with the bad contrast between the planes and the sky and clouds. But they came out surprisingly well.

    Was a fun time.
     
  4. Hi Pete,

    Is Bob Hoover still flying?? I saw him in an airshow in 1967 or 1968. He was no kid then.

    I don't think Bob is still flying.

    His plane "Ole Yeller" was here, but flown by John Bagley
