Have followed the project, and it is an amazing result.

Van is an impressive fellow, and having flown with him, and he let me fly his personal plane, I am not only grateful, but in awe of this most humble and significant contributor to aviation.

Nice shot MMArdmore - great to see those currents from both coasts meet but I wouldn't want to be in the water just there.

I was quite impressed to see the size of the waves that this beast was eating up today.

Always great to see an interesting Hi-res Black and White photo in this age of colour....
Have put this one up before, but it is one of my favourites from my 'era of exploration things photogenic', long ago..



The unusual thing with the light here, is that when set at certain angles it made the childs lime-washed hair on the right appear almost halo like in transparency.. My Dad commented on the practice of lime-washing Melanesian curly hair when he visited also..

I agree. For aircraft such as the DC-3/Dak and the Belfast I do believe that B & W and Sepia sometimes enhance the photo (in my opinion).
