Yep, I also defer to Simon over the Playa. Just one thing though..pictures, lots of pictures please! Seeing them posted here after the burn will be a great way to help with our post-playa blues!

Yes.
Because giving it to Simon is, in effect, like giving it to ALL of us, as we all live vicariously thru him anyhow.

He kept it hid And so did she.

Then passed right by- And never knew.”

Was it a wild Cheetah? :shock:
The way you're sort of coaxing it over in the first pic is awesome!

EDIT: All your pics kick ass by the way! How do you have so many pics of your plane flying if you're the one flying it? (Statue of Liberty, Jordanian Falcons, etc.)

Delightful. :D

You have good photos--I don't think it's so bad that we have to just link to your entire photostream. Most people don't mind.


(You almost had it down, though. If you care--and you don't have to--make sure your BBCode is turned on in your User Control Panel under "board preferences" and "edit posting defaults", then you copy and paste the funny link that has "farm" and stuff in it, then highlight it and click "IMG" and the image tags will appear at both ends. And click "preview" instead of "submit" so that you can see if it worked. It took me a few times to figure it out, too.)

Sorry if I put too many photos on the link. And I am not sure that anyone really wants to know about the flying adventure other than the chance to get the free ride over Burning Man. However, the airplane that will give the ride has been to more places in the world than any other airplane. 1,200 landings on all continents in 155 countries. Took me 10 years to complete. Left the airplane 43 different places in the world while doing it. Of course, I crashed the first time I tried it, but that is another story.
More here if you happen to care:

Anyway, back to the contest of creativity to award the winner!

I wish more pilots went up in tandem with another plane. I was asked at the last second if I would shoot a few photos of Skybolt when I went up with Hoot in 2004. They were amazing!

Haven't had a chance to shoot other planes since.
