    Yes sir, Ray. I remember you. Your Canon had died a mysterious and painless death that fine day. It would be great to shoot with you again. Hopefully you can shoot the whole day this time. Hit me up when you are in town. I can PM you my cell number.

    Thats pretty cool, I don't think I would be able to get away for both evenrs and seeing I live about 10 minutes away from the Canadian warplane Heritage museum and see WWII aircraft flying around every weekend I would think I would need to take advantage of JFK. Looks cool though and I won't lie seeing a whole heap of B25s would be cool!

    Sorry I won't be able to get there in time Ray but I hope you enjoy yourself. So tell us, what did you end up replacing that old camera with? If I had Canon glass I would go for the new 70D, it looks fantastic
