BCSF Warwick Airport Fun Fly

Description:

On June 25thI attended the 5th Annual Warwick Fun Fly at the Warwick Airport in New York. The event was sponsored by the Bergen County Silent Fliers of New Jersey. Wow what a party. The location is beautiful & even includes a lake for boats & float planes in addition to an additional runway for micro fliers. I had a blast watching & taking photos not to mention talking to some full scale & RC fliers. The food truck served some very nice food. I will be back next year, this time with planes, canopy & other goodies to make it a full day. I spent most of my time at the lake.

I tend to favor presenting images that provide a unique scene not visible by the naked eye at the time, like a beautiful mirror effect against the water or at the moment to ROW. Here are a few of my favorite.

So who won the race, the Beaver or the Boat?

Agreed, a nice collection of float planes & boats. I first went to the runway area & decided, been there, done that, nothing very exciting. Even the mid-air was uneventful

When they told me I could drive to the lake, off I went. During the next hours more & different planes arrived. Some I had only seen in magazines but never in person. Seeing them fly in person was new-to-me. I stayed a few hours until the heat overtook me.

I enjoy taking & processing the photos albeit if it takes me as many hours to develop them as it does to attend the event. It allows me to relive the event I attended & my distance friends to see something different. I took 525 photos, deleted 400 & published 51. On average I target a developing time of 30 to 45 seconds for each photo taken, on average. When I was young, I used to take photos at a summer camp & spend all night physically developing them - black & white. I made good money. So to me developing a digital photo is the same as developing a film photo but without the fumes

Maybe one or two more events for this year where I will take photos. Hope to provide lunch as an incentive to the Club members to bring their military planes one day for a get together. Last one I did was 3 years ago @ Retro. Some most beautiful planes were taken out of storage to attend the event. There I will take photos for all to enjoy. Just hope I can find someone to take photos of my planes

Let me know which planes are yours. I have a few more photos not published. I will be more than happy to PM you a link so you can download the original version for processing as you like or if you want I can process them, just let me know what size, i.e. 4x6, 5x7, 8x10, HD, etc.

Just need to know which planes are yours. Hover your mouse over the picture & let me know the name, i.e. the number of the picture.

Some have asked to get a copy of the other photos not published. I agree with needmoreglue, many lend themselves to a great desktop background. Since RCG let me upload the raw unedited photos, here are the other 70 photos I have. You can download the original quality / size by clicking twice (click on the photo & after RCG displays it, click on it again) on the photo & then hitting the right mouse button and selecting "Save picture as".

Typical editing that I do is crop the photo to meet the Rule of Thirds, the dimensions want (depends how you want to use them, say print 8x10, 5x6, or use as a background). I also increase the Contrast by 10 to 20 points.

Warning if using your phone data plan to download them, these files are 2 to 3 mb each, data rates may apply.

I'll also upload the larger size photos of those published in a following post.

Note: I'll keep these "proof" photos active until July 31, when I will delete them. So download what you want.

Enjoy

I am sad to report that George Molinet, aka Red Sneakers, passed away last night in his sleep. He was a member of the North Jersey Soaring Society (NJSS) and was a champion of the hobby. He would teach any passerby at the field how to fly if they are interested.

He was passionate about our hobby as well as for photography. His eyes lit up when he saw the float fly at the lake and was looking forward to future float fly events. It was his first attendance at the Warwick Fun Fly.

He will be missed.
