Picture of the CAF's FG-1D Corsair on the ramp in Tallahassee at dusk. Picture taken by a co-worker... wish I could take credit for this one!

Your honesty in admitting that this is not your pic is admirable, David, (there are some who just steal the photos of others and post them as if they took them) but if you are posting a shot taken by someone else, it is always courteous to give the photographer's name so he / she can get the credit he / she deserves for such a great snap. Or did you post this without permission?

I did get his permission prior to posting, but I didn't explicitly ask if I could post his name. So, I did not think it was appropriate to do so until I talk with him again.

I understand your situation (re: workplace concerns, etc.); I was in the same circumstance myself a few years back. This is a superior shot (I should say that YOUR snaps are always equally outstanding), and I am grateful to be able to view it. Please pass along my sincere kudos to the photographer, and I truly hope he finds an outlet where he can display his skills and receive credit for his fine talent as seen here. (Thumbs Up)

Well, tell your co-worker that it is a great picture, and thanks for sharing it. I love Corsairs! They always remind me of Pappy Boyington and the Black Sheep Squadron. Remind me sometime and I'll tell my story about having to help do a complete oil change on one after I put the wrong type of oil in it by mistake. (i.e. detergent vs. non-detergent) It is a long story, though, so I'll save it for another time, eh!

Thanks and I'll pass along the kind remarks! My wife's grandfather flew the Corsair's off the USS Shangri-La during WWII and has some awesome stories. I love going through his logbook and having the chance to talk with him about his experiences.
