    Hey ya'll -

    Sorry for the long delay but I had a lot of pics I had to weed through and sort out relating to Whisker Victeys. We had a ball!

    For each new topic (aircraft, scenery, etc), I'll have a picture but this is ALSO a hyperlink to that set of photos meaning when you see Rob's C172 you can mouse click on that picture to look at the whole set of those pictures.

    If you have trouble viewing them, please let me know. I hope you enjoy them and look forward to any feedback. Please feel free to comment on the flickr site directly on the pics. I tried to get use as many shots from each aircraft as I could. Dr. Bruce, sorry but I only had 2 of your beautiful Seneca.

    Thanks, and I hope you enjoy them. The last link is a "show" of all 292.

    Thanks CJ, It's a Nikon D40 with a zoom lens. We were actually standing about 18 inches off the side of the runway and giving a heads up to the traffic using a transceiver as to not surprise any landing/departing traffic.

    Funny thing happened when Gary and Mary were landing on Saturday night in their new bird. Gary was crabbing a little to the right and it appeared that he was headed for us standing off the runway edge. AdamZeeee hollered "RUN FOR YOUR LIVES, PROTECT YOURSELVES, HE'S GONNA LAND ON US". All of us turned around (still in the same place) to see AdamZeeee .25 miles up the road! Funny Funny! :rofl:

    We all really had a great time!

    Thanks Dr Bruce. I'm glad we found your phone on the flightline of W99. I had to chuckle when I asked on the radio what your destination was (after you had departed) and you replied without losing a beat, "Whiskey 99", lol. I was going to express mail it to you back in Jersey. Nice bird you have!

    YAY! That'll definitely be fun! Can someone set me up a "DONATE" button on the bottom for fuel costs to all the fly-ins? haha (that was a joke!).

    When's the next one

    Don't expect too much and you won't be disappointed. Nothing to hold the camera steady and lots of wind noise. But you get the gist of it anyway.


    Bruce, yours got cut short because I lost you in the houses and terrain, and never reacquired you.
