“Ice cold water is runnin' through my veins.
They try and drag me back to work again.
Pain and blisters on my mind and hands.Ӡ
Flying all day dropping three tons of bombs.††

Thanks, Julie!
Great shots Tim .. The nose gunners view point is an interesting one! I agree with Harry and Lavinia .. :)

Thanks, Bruce. You have to figure out how to do video on these cameras. It's not always one button or intuitive.
I went back over to try to get a video of the plane roaring up to taxi out last night after work- and I realized I didn't know how to take film with that camera! I got a little bit of it filmed after it landed, after I consulted the manual for 10 minutes on how to video while it was out flying. Alas, a decent breeze owned the microphone, though, and I did not get a very good engine recording. It was nice to hear though.
Fantastic photos. I used the wrong lens! But at least Wade was present.
