Default Traffic jam on Foxtrot

I was number one on taxiway Foxtrot, looking forward to scarfing a delicious meal at the Waypoint Cafe at Camarillo, when ground comes up with, "207A, hold at Alpha...Expect a 5 to 10 minute delay."

Twenty minutes later, this rather large 4-engine beast came rumbling straight at me. It was very impressive...

Fixed your photo link. Hit the "Quote" button and take a look at what the system wants to see.

Cool photo! When you said "four engined beast" I first thought about Air Force One, but it's on the other side of the world today, and if it had been coming in, the delay would have been closer to 20 hours than 20 minutes.

Thanks for the fix. I still don't understand what you did. If you want to dumb it down and not take up the forum space, reply to lernez@yahoo.com.
Thanks again!

Great shot!

I had that same airplane chase me around the pattern at Sun 'n Fun last year when I was doing flyby in the RV-1, but I didn't have the chance to take a picture. I was in Crosswind at the end of my last pass when the tower told me that my traffic was "A" B-29 on a forty-five entry to downwind, and that I would be ahead of him. I said I could fly a short base, but they said they'd just extend his downwind.

I figured that cost them more fuel than the RV-1 burned on it's entire North American tour last year.... (I cut the base close)

You put the part that starts with http: and ends with .jpg between a [img] and a [/img]. Anything more or anything less usually ends up with a broken link. tinypic generates a link with this already done that you can copy and paste into your post.

Great picture, I haven't managed anything like that .......yet. I always live in hope. The closest so far has been - just before a 90degree bend in the taxiway, view obscured by a hangar:- "Golf Zulu, hold, I've got a Hurricane coming the other way and he's not talking to me"! But sadly no camera with me.

Default Me an' Fifi

Here's the shot from inside of the cockpit of 207A. If you look closely at the top of the canopy front, you can see the top of the ipad sticking out, trying to get a shot of Fifi.

The first shot was taken by John Barco who was in his Turbo Arrow IV, stuck in the number two position on the taxiway.

Good grief, what a great moment to be a controller!
