    One of the perils of having high quality, extremely portable kit is that you have it with you all the time and when people find out, they invariably inveigle you into doing some work as part of the "other duties as assigned"

    So, the training manager wandered in and shoved a sheaf of badly photocopied images relating to B200 Walk Arounds, something every F/O does prior to flight. "Need these for a ground school on Monday".

    Again, the EP-2 was stellar, and I just stuck with the kit lens this time, no legacy glass.

    Not a lot of art here, just dull industrial training pictures

    "Inspect propellors for nicks and inspect for damage to de-ice boots"

    "Inspect Landing lights and Pitot Tubes"

    And so on. Not the most thrilling shooting, but interesting.

    Thanks to C-GZRX for acting as my model.

    Ok, I've gone through all the pictures. Do I pass trainning school? do I get my certification now? :biggrin:

    Great pics John... is that a King Air 200 or 300. I've been on both many times, great little planes.

    Yeah it is a double edged sword isn't it? I carry my GF1 everywhere now with the 20mm pancake and I feel the need to take everything i see now. Sometimes I even move to a better perspective just to get a better compo of the shot based on the direction of the sunlight haha.
