Okay, all you Church Burning Ebola Boys (and girls), this is a last minute announcement of an informal After the Bar Closes meet-up at the Air Force Museum in Dayton, Ohio at 9:00 AM this coming Saturday, December 19.

I am heading Back East to visit my parents prior to Christmas and I am stopping in Dayton, OH to meet up with the infamous khan and tour what is one of the coolest museums on the face of the earth.  If you live within a few hours of Dayton, and can make it, PM me.

Wish I could join you. Make sure to visit the experimental aircraft hangar. You have to take a bus into the base to get there, so sign up early, as soon as you get to the museum.

I had my 12-24mm lens with me and still had to take a series of shots and stitch them together. The hangar is jam-packed with planes, so for the above shot I'm standing less than ten feet from the YF-12.

Alas! Time, money, latitude and longitude conspire against me.

But have a virtual drink on me

Speaking for myself, I had a great time.  khan was a gracious host and put up with me running around like a hyperactive kid in a candy store*.  And all she got for her effort was a sore back!

I took a bunch of pictures, but being a (very) amateur photographer**, they are going to need a lot of cleanup to be presentable.  I am up in Cleveland visiting my folks and heading back to OKC tomorrow. I probably won't get around to working with the pictures until after Christmas.

*Video dramatization of the day

** I really need to find a course at the local vo-tech and learn more about photography.  My efforts to date are almost uniformly mediocre.

carlsonjok really has a thing for aircraft engines, could barely keep his hands off them.

Will I ruin his reputation if I say he is charming?

It would be impossible to "ruin his reputation", don't you think?

Feel free to email the files if you want, and I'll see what I can do with them.

Speaking of reputations -

Be very careful carlsonjock! You might wind up voted Best Supporting Actress in a Made For UTube vid, starring you and the Wright Brothers, with you wearing nothing but a smile and a fetching little red off-the shoulder dress!

Sounds like what my mother used to refer to (in glacial tones, as my younger sister pranced out the door of a Saturday) as "a gownless evening strap".

Only took 2 pictures, as I have an old inadequate camera.

Khan,

Did a little tinkering with your pic to bring out its revanchist imperialist running dog glories:
