I used to work for Dollar Rent a Car. Went out to LAX about 3 years ago with my good friend, Josh Rawlin. I had a Kia Sportage or something like that. This was before 9/11. Anyway, I'm not exactly a lightweight and I got on the roof of that SUV. Before the end of the weekend, it looked like the SUV had been hit with giant hail-stones..........thought I would be fired from my job. Not one word was ever said about it...... Smile

the pilot's Girl Friday was shooting with a panoramic disposable...After I sent them a copy of the photo she sent me a photo of me shooting her airplane. Very nice.  Smile (typically I have no way of posting it...)

As for shooting with height...I convinced my wife that I really, really, really needed an F-150 pickup truck to haul stuff for her garden. If you put a contico storage box in the back it gives you something good and solid to stand on, giving you the height to look over any fence. Also a handy place to store the beer cooler.  Smile

You've really found a good way to save your car's roof!  Laugh out loud

This is how we do it in Europe!  Big thumbs up

Good god, Sven, are your hearing still functioning after standing that close to a FM in motion? That thing, as another forum user commented in one of my TR which featured the Fouga, is only good at 2 things: Making noise & burning fuel.

As far as I know, I have not been photographed while spotting (although I think Vasco Garcia was close in that wide-angle shot from the roundabout at Heathrow), but I have photographed other spotters when they had no clue about it  Innocent  Big thumbs up


Who needs a 2X teleconverter for a 400mm lens anyway?  Big grin


Notice how no-one is looking at the FedEx A310 in the background, and they call themselves spotters!  Big thumbs up

You'd be very rich! I have a Toyota 4Runner and the car frame is really poorly built. Since I exceed the maximum roof weight allowance I feel that one day im going to break it pretty badly!

I received these via e-mail from a VIP that was on the terrace behind me. I was wearing a safety harness by Museum rules as there was no handrails to keep me from falling off. And yes, I was bundled up pretty good.
