Denver Trip PAGE 215.

June 18, 2006:  The video camera allows me to capture snapshot frames from the video tape.  This one is from my engine run-up to 1800 RPM before takeoff from home.  I just wanted to show the high shutter speed of the dash-mounted video camera.  The camera virtually "stops" the propeller blades, even at 2300 RPM during cruise flight.

I chose this video frame since it shows the sun reflecting off the back side of the propeller.  I want to remind you that I see none of this with my eyes.  That is the southern end of Lookout Mountain in the distance.

On approach to runway 26 at Denver Front Range Airport (KFTG).  I chose video frames that did not show the propeller in all  the photos below.

June 23, 2006: I am posting this short entry just before 1 AM (Eastern Time) from the hotel in Denver.  When I get up Friday morning, it will be the last day of the trade show that brought me here.  I will finish the convention and get to a motel out near the Front Range Airport (KFTG) where the EAA Rocky Mountain Regional Fly-In will be held Saturday and Sunday.  I will be attending Saturday, and flying home on Sunday.  Stay tuned for more details that will begin on page 216.
