A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

Yuppers!

Got cancelled last year due to Covid though.

I used to volunteer down there for the local cable (camerman).

Got the VIP treatment, got to go into the restricted areas, make trades with Russian pilots, etc.
Doc doing business with the Russians? What’s with you Republicans?

Yah but it aint what it used to be. I went up and took air to air pictures of the Russian Knights in their SU-27s in the early 90s.

That's just one of hundreds of memories from the photo days.

Mick do you have a website with your photos?

Strangest thing, my wife saw a photo of an SR71 and is completely obsessed with them now...

But what about the Guru loving folk?

I knew a Sikh once and had to drop something off outside his front door one day.

To my shock, he opened up his upstairs window and let his hair down. Literally!

I had only ever seen him with his turban on, so this was quite a sight to behold.

It was like Goldilocks without the gold...

To go with the airshow theme, the new team should be called the Abbotsford Aviators.
It goes with the Johnny Canuck, WWII Pilot theme.

I did for years. Then I just let my agent do it.. Long story short. He died in 2007 but his wife and son kept it going not too badly but eventually it dropped right off. The son was selling on the QT. I caught wind of it and raced down to California in 2016 and pulled all the images they had from me and two other name photographers. The best photos are never put up on-line, just teasers to catch interest.
I missed the SR71 by a year or so. It's a beautiful aircraft that just plain looks awesome. George Hall, my old late agent, got some of the best pictures ever taken of it.

I always thought the F-104 Starfighter was a trippy looking plane. It looks like they designed it at the same time they were making Flash Gordon comics lol
