Introducing Vintage Air

A few weeks back, I mentioned my non-aviation blog, but I've also started a new aviation-related one called Vintage Air, a place that tells the stories behind vintage aviation photographs, many of which have never been published. Today's post is the first one on the blog that involves photos taken at Mojave (they were shown here in 2008, but they bear showing again), hence the mention here. There will be more Mojave photos for the next couple of Tuesdays over at Vintage Air.

Plane Crazy, October 2011: Boomerang and Guest

The featured aircraft for the October 2011 PCS was none other than the recently resurrected Rutan Model 202 Boomerang. Once Burt's personal airplane, it's now in the care of Scaled's Mike Melvill. Along with Catbird, Boomerang recently made the trek to Oshkosh for the Rutan tribute. Here's an up-close-and-personal look at this most amazing aircraft.

During PCS, this rather striking DeHavilland Dash 8, configured for an undisclosed flight test program, showed up and parked down the ramp.

Some Mojave Photos at "Light in our Lens"

While my day-job employment has taken me from Mojave to Palmdale and Edwards - leaving this blog essentially dormant - I still occasionally get to shoot there (I'm usually around during the monthly Plane Crazy Saturday open house, shooting when not driving the flightline tour tram), and recently had the opportunity to write about PCS for AirShowStuff Magazine (you can read it online here).

I have also started writing a more generalized photography-related blog, Light in our Lens, and the most recent post there is about, you guessed it, Mojave and PCS...so y'all are invited over to take a look at a few photos that didn't make the magazine article, but are worthy of mention anyway. Cheers!
