        The Boshears Skyfest celebrated its 19th year in the sky above Daniel Field the weekend of October 15th. It was awesome getting up close and personal with lots of vintage aircraft on static displays. Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) Chapter 172 also sponsored a Fly-In and there were numerous experimental aircraft on hand. Many of these home built airplanes defied your eyes because of their compact sizes. Camera: Canon 5D Lens: 24-105mm IS Post Production: Lightroom 2.5

        • Bizarre Brooklyn #101 - Floyd Bennett Field

          This is perhaps the strangest place in Brooklyn I've ever found. New York's first municipal airport, Floyd Bennett Field was decommissioned in 1971 and has since been operated by the federal government as park of the National Park Service. The buildings I'm walking around range from somewhat well-maintained to absolutely decrepit. They've been preserved because they're some of the earliest surviving structures in the style of 1930's aviation. They're protected under the National Register of Historic Places - making Floyd Bennett Field truly an anomaly in Brooklyn. Not only do places like this tend not to exist anymore; when they do, they're most definitely not open to the public without supervision. Not shown in the video are the empty, ancient airplane runways that you can drive your car down at breakneck speeds. Truly unique. As you'll see from the video, there's nothing stopping someone from entering the buildings and doing some serious exploring. Except for federal law, of course. Around 2:30 you can begin to hear the spooky wind sound that I mention at the beginning of the video.

              We were asked by the Naval Helicopter Historical Society to produce a brief video documentary about the early history of the U.S. Navy helicopter. The video will be displayed at the Coronado, CA public library to commemorate the Centennial of Naval Aviation. Because librarians eschew noise, we created a silent film to be shown in the library!

                On Tuesday 19 April 2011 at the Commonwealth War Graves Commission's Ranville War Cemetery near Caen in Normandy, France, Flight Lieutenant Henry "Lacy" Smith was buried. The 27 year old Australian was killed as he flew his Spitfire in support of ground forces which had landed a few days previously on D-Day. The ceremony proved to be very emotional, with Lieutenant Smith's family amongst the mourners.
