WWII C-47 Reenactment Drop

December 11th, 2017

On the Warriors and Warbirds airshow at Monroe, NC on Veteran’s day weekend, a bunch of nuts fell out of a vintage C-47 Commando cargo plane in authentic WWII gear & hit the chutes. Here’s a hi-res vid of the action.

New Video Tributes to the USAF

October 30th, 2017

Been doing a lot of video work lately, including whetting my skills on some new video editing software by doing some USAF tribute videos. Most of the footage is from the USAF photographers, and a few clips from US Army units. The first one is about the A-10 Warthog or “Hog”, a plane I worked on for a few years. Second video is about the Thunderbirds

Great trip to Ireland, and got just a ton of photos and video, including drone video. For the photos, you can see them here, and the videos can all be seen on my YouTube channel.

Zephyr service in the South…

April 13th, 2017

The N&W 611 steam locomotive did some trips in early April around North Carolina and Virginia. Here’s a shot of the #611 rolling north through the signals at Lexington, NC. More photos of the trips can be found here. As well, the train had several vintage passenger cars of note, from the California Zephyr was the Silver Solarium and Silver Lariat, seen here.

Shock and Awe…

March 9th, 2017

A tornadic storm swept across western Lincoln county and Burke county last week.  Here’s a view as it rolls over South Mountain State park…South Mountain is covered in rain, but the leading edge of the storm strikes terror across the nearby hilltops…


Barn moon rising…

I took a similar photo a few years ago, but a mis-set ISO really didn’t help the photos much.  However, I revisited the location and place, and this time even the clouds improved!

A Vampire in Her Majesty’s Service…

A pretty rare aircraft for the US, an British Vampire flies the skies over North Carolina in the annual Warriors and Warbirds airshow in Monroe, NC.


Fog on the Pine…

December 12th, 2016

I really wanted to be able to send the drone up on a foggy morning to see what it was like…and was pretty amazed!  Of course, you have to be careful and not fly it away from where you took off or you might never see it again.  Anyhow, both the photos below were taken from the same spot, about 20 min apart.

A pair of GSMR locomotives cross the Tuckasegee River near Ela, NC. The Smoky Mountains live up to their name as wildfires burn in the distance.
