Thought I'd shoot planes in the rain, see what happens.

Close views of very active runway 9R under wet and rainy conditions. Lots of cool jet blasts!

Hey, guys - still breaking in my new camera and thought everyone might want to see this Columbian Navy Tall Ship I shot with it the other day.

This 3 masted ship is a training vessel for the Colombian navy with around 80 cadets on board during the training period.

She is a Colombian Navy tall ship, traveling around the world to introduce people to the South American country.

This is a standard entry level heli that can't perform 3D maneuvers but certainly can help you get all your basics down and is pretty cool to fly.

Anyone who truly wants to understand flight must study the dragonfly.

It's often said dragonflies are the only creature on earth that has truly mastered flight. After making this video I agree. They move forwards, backwards, sideways and just about any direction in between. They corner on a dime and of course, they hover. Besides that they have extraordinary 360į insect vision (compound eyes each with around 30,000 lenses) with split second reflexes.

Hey everyone!

Here's some cool views of the F-16 in action.

The General Dynamics (now Lockheed Martin) F-16 Fighting Falcon multirole fighter is featured in this video compilation shot during the 2010 Homestead and the 2011 Stuart Air Shows.

The F-16's official name is "Fighting Falcon", but "Viper" is commonly used by its pilots, due to a perceived resemblance to a viper snake as well as the Battlestar Galactica Colonial Viper starfighter.

Hey, guys - check out this action:

An F-16 makes two Minimum Radius Turns at approximately mach.7 at the 2010 Homestead Air Show. Forgot I had this footage!

Remember our RC Birds got their start from the real ones just like this!

Hey everyone -

These unique views were taken 7 stories up on the roof of the Hibiscus Garage that's just about centered in between all 3 runways at the airport.

On the roof of the Hibiscus Garage the view is out to the 9000' Runway designated 9L while the planes were taking off Eastward towards the ocean.

Fun at the dog corral with a couple of major perpetrators still not quite ready to grow up.

I put the RC toys down for a while and went to the park with my black street rescued pup who took on a pit bull for some cool tug-of-war.

Watching them was almost as fun as flying my F-15.

Hey, everyone -

New YouTube vid - I was on the tracks across from the Airport for a good hour before the police showed up and told me FAA wants me out of there. Fortunately I got some good landings before I was evicted!

Shot from 3 different locations on one Sunday afternoon at Fort Lauderdale International Airport the very heavy traffic on Runway 9L shows it's one of the busiest in the country.

The two different overhead views were taken just East of 9L directly aligned with the glide path/touch down corridor while the broad side view was taken from the viewing area at 9L's Southwest corner.
