Met up with Brent (Aggie06) today for some photos of his awesome flying machine. Here are a few for now, more to come.

Thanks! It helps when the plane looks this good.
 
Tons of fun. Thanks for making it look so good Jack.

Now to convince the wife we need these pictures in every room of the house.

We had a lot of fun too. Tell your wife you have my permission to put up 6 photos! I'm sure that will convince her.
 
Beautiful pics of a gorgeous airplane. Best model Cessna ever quit making!!

Edit....Holy moly! I just broke the 500-message sound barrier :)
 
Looks awesome! The Cessna high wings look great with the wheels up! Nice plane and great pics!!
 
Beautiful pictures. I love a picture of any Cessna RG especially looking up at them from below. Really cool to see them with the gear up.
 
Nailed it again, Jack! Beautiful stuff.

Let me know if you're ever on the Left Coast. I want to hire you to take some pics of my plane. :)
 
Beautiful pictures, beautiful 182. I only wish mine looked that good~
 
Nicely composed pics. Well done. And, a very pretty airplane.
 
Thank you all for the compliments! This was a great photo shoot and we timed it perfectly, getting some nice pics over the Little River, and ending back at Taylor for some sunset shots. As for the bridge, I try to get it in shots when I can and I thought we had missed it. Getting this slick 182RG slowed down enough to match up with our 170 was a bit of a challenge and I didn't want to circle back to get the bridge. Luckily we got it. Next time I'll start a little further down stream and make sure we're ready for it!

Wow Jack.

That sunset photo is outstanding! Great job framing it in the clouds with the beautiful sunset colors. You really have the eye.

I can learn the technical aspects of photography but I think the artistry is a wonderful gift and am envious of people like you that have it. I know it also takes a lot of planning and hard work as well but I think there are some things that can’t be taught that separates those that have it from those that don’t. You have it.

:yeahthat: I agree, Jack has it.
 
Ooh that's nice Jack! Purty!
Thank you! It was fun.

WOW.... just WOW!!!

Thank you. I think we turned at least two full circles to get that shot! I had to figure out a way to keep our right wing up and get him in between us and the sun. Credit goes to both pilots for pulling it off... my photo pilot Donn Hopkins and Brent for performing so well in his first formation flight! I'm just the director.
:yeahthat: I agree, Jack has it.
Thanks again. You've always been a great supporter and it means a lot to me!
 
Impressive.
Killer plane and killer photographer!

(not killer as in the crazy murder movies but killer as in really good)

Althooooough... killer plane might make a good movie... @eman1200 and @SixPapaCharlie
Lol, thanks and this explains the SWAT team outside. Fortunately I live in a small town and they’re not that scary. I’m going to bed!

I like them too, but see what the landing gear pivots cost.
 
Great shots as usual!

What year is that plane? The cowl and nosebowl are different than my club’s plane.

This is a fairly new option...... http://www.troutdaleaircraft.com/cessna-landing-gear-repair.html

Don't know what it ^^^^^ costs, but it's gotta be cheaper than new. I know several R182 owners, and none of them has ever had an issue, including one that has spent it's entire life ('79 model) on grass (the airplane, not the owner :)

Poll time, if I can figure out how to do it, on the frequency of the issue. I'm too lazy to go thru the accident reports. Hey Ron W.....got anything on this already in the bag?

Club's R182 had one go very early on, and we got in on the repair option not too long after it was approved. Cost was $4K and change. Cessna wanted $19K for a new one. :hairraise:
 
Thanks!

@aggie06 can probably tell you more about the plane. He's the cover boy!
I’m definitely adding “magazine cover model” to my LinkedIn profile. Probably won’t help me in the tax accounting world, though.

The plane is an 85 model. Upgraded and basically rebuilt over the years with your tax dollars when it was owned by the FBI. They made some changes to it but the cowl is not something I’m aware of, except for the step they added. Great airplane, though.

Thanks again @Lowflynjack for the opportunity.
 
It's easy to tell the ex-FBI airplanes...They're all painted in Ohio State colors! :)

Sorry, Brent!

Jim

PS- On ours, they also added a handle on top of the cowl to make it easier to use the 'new' step they put on. Very handy!

Mine has the handle, too!

Hey, that color goes over just as well in College Station as it does in Columbus.

Thanks for the info, and I’m glad you get to be the beneficiary of a well-maintained plane!

Ours is a ‘79, so there’s a few subtle differences.
