    Let's all go to the air show; The Planes of Fame air show is held at the 1,100 acre Chino Airport in beautiful downtown Chino, California, which features two air museums and is home to 1,100 planes. Here's how it looked using the Pentax K-S2 and the 50-200mm kit lens:


    Opening ceremony and National Anthem; a P-51 Mustang leads two P-47 Thunderbolts and two P-38 Lightnings. What could be more American than two P-38 Lightnings?



    ...How about three P-38 Lightnings?



    Dropping in behind enemy lines; a surprise paratrooper display courtesy the C-47 Skytrain:



    77 year old stunt pilot Rob Harrison skirts his Zlin 142C trainer around the contours of the PB4Y-2 Consolidated bomber's stabilizer:



    Another day in Chino; a MiG-15 operator watches a passing P-63 King Cobra:



    Even the planes watch the planes; a SNJ-5 Texan pilot spots a scrambling F-86 Sabre:



    Sabre into the sundog; the F-86 encounters some ice crystals:



    Looking good for 76 years old; the Northrup N9MB Flying Wing:



    Three generations; C-47 Skytrain, A-10 Warthog, T-33 Shooting Star:

    It was ~98 degrees, so you might actually prefer it from where you are; I'm shooting another airshow next week (that's taking place at a beer brewery and some of it is at night,) they'll have a squad of YAK-52s flying as they did last year.

    Let's all go to the air show; The Hangarfest air show is held at the Redlands Municipal Airport in beautiful downtown Redlands, California, home of the Hangar 24 craft beer brewery. Here's how it looked using the Pentax K-S2 and the Tamron 70-200mm lens:

    Heritage flight; the designs for the F-16 Viper and P-51 Mustang are separated by only 30 years:



    Drag race; Jon Melby in the sponsor Pitts S-1 biplane graciously admits defeat to Bill Braack and the Smoke n' Thunder Jet Car:



    All 280,000 lbs of March AFB's C-17 Globemaster III bringing the clouds:



    All 800 lbs of Kent Piesch's Jelly Belly plane partially touches down in an uncommitted landing:



    Red Bull also gives you rotary wings; Aaron Fitzgerald trustfalls the Bo 105 helicopter seen in the movie Spectre:



    Trucks get such poor MPG; Hayden Proffitt's twin-jet engined Hot Streak II clouds the crowd in spent jet fuel:



    Beer Festival; the house brewer brought a dozen varieties, and 29 other breweries had selections of their own with $1 2oz sampler pours:



    Light the fires, then put 'em out; Greg Colyer's Lockheed T-33 Shooting Star clears the way for Cal Fire to respond to a call:



    For dessert: the "twilight show", moments after sunset, featuring the Royal Canadian Air Force CF-18 Hornet Demo Team:

    I think I'd prefer to be eaten by a big cuddly lion than by a big giant spider.

    While spending some time cleaning the garage, I decided to play with some bulbs I'd replaced at church. Check out the contrast between three LED's and a 300w incan. Next trip to Home Depot I'll be purchasing some warm white floods.

    The 300w bulbs next to a standard 60w.

    The catch always comes when you compare energy use vs LED; the power going to a single one of those bulbs would light 20 LED bulbs [100w equiv]..

    Sure, but with four 300w bulbs my garage will be nice n toasty.

    I'm so cheap I put LED's in my garage door openers.

    Hi ven,

    I do too. That's why I purchased four of these. -



    I'm now enjoying the equivalent of 400 watts (6,400 Lumens) of StarHalo approved Soft White LED lighting for only 64 watts of consumed power.

    Here's the result. -



    The stereo is now on-line too.

    This is the time of year we start finding these in the house.

    Spider on painted cement floor.




    Spider relocated to the great outdoors.

    I get covered up with wood spiders as well. Usually try to sneak them outside before the wife kills them with fire. I got bit by a big one one time I tried to get out of a bathtub. Surprisingly painful to be a finger bite.
