James, AzAP has a one-wink policy on forum posts.  Anything beyond that is considered flirting.   Wink

To all,

Just a reminder to please provide copies of your better images to Michelle, our gracious B.D. hostess at El Centro.  Some of the flight crews ask for copies and are thrilled to get these types of shots.  If she uses them for any pubs, she will provide appropriate credit.

If you need an address, send me a pm or email.

Thanks,
Dave S.
