Nice shots, both on the ground and in the air. Love the wide angle details. Too bad they have to "idiot-proof" the props with those signs.

** Very ** nice series.

The T-6 is interesting to me in the extreme. As you are probably aware, the AT-6D Texan was used by the USAAF as a "Gunnery Trainer" from 1942-46.

It was during that time that Dad did his gunnery training at Buckingham Field in Florida before being deployed overseas as a CFC "Ring" Gunner in B-29's.

Nice to see the perspective that he'd have seen climbing aboard for a run at the tow targets.

woof!

Thank you and Yes, the tags do get in the way. For some reason, the first thing people want to do is grab the prop.

Thanks. We owe our gratitude to all the veterans who have served. In 1991, I won a ride in a T6. It was really something. I remember the pilot telling me that he had been a T6 flight instructor stationed in Alabama during WWII. He was still mad that they had never let him fly in combat! A few years later, I saw an article about him in Flying Magazine. I have searched on the internet trying to find the guys name but no luck. I can still remember his face, clear as day.

Thanks Jimbo. The Tamron is a great lens for the price. I do have trouble with purple fringing, especially if I shoot an aircraft with polished surfaces, or if the aircraft has it's landing lights on. I usually stop down as much as possible to keep the PF to a minimum.
