First of all I have emailed the screeners. Also, what categories does this go under? I also have a cockpit shot of SS1.  Smile Hope they get in soon, it was a GREAT DAY!

Danny, it does not warrant priority screening, sorry.

First A380 for Chautauqua will maybe get priority screening. Everything else - pssh!

(Just kidding Royal  bigthumbsup  )

Can't wait to see the first flight deck shots of SS1!

Danny, where did you find SS1? I understand that its only public display/demo is going to be at EAA after which it is due to be donated to a museum. Why would such a rare plane as this in a rare appearance, possibly the last time anyone will see it fly, not be considered newsworthy enough for priority?

Before heading to Oshkosh SS1 made a stop here in TUL and overnighted. It departed at around 1pm this afternoon. All I can say is that I am so happy that I had the chance to see it fly and stand right next to it. I even stuck my head in the cockpit and it was amazing. Lots of great pics which danny, Jim & I took. Now the dreaded wait for screening.

Was it open to the public? Or how did you guys get on the ramp?

Hi Bruce,

It was not "officially" open to the public. The newspaper ran a story about it and a lot of people showed up. Just a handful got on the ramp. Lots more than they had wanted. We know the manager of the FBO where they stopped. They wanted a shot or two of the aircraft in front of their hangar so we worked out a photo for ramp access trade.  Smile I have a shot in the queue of it taxiing in from atop the hangar. It was a HOT one up there! 102F on the ground....you figure out what it would be on a metal hangar roof! LOL It was a fun 2 days!

Thanks!

The exterior shots of WhiteKnight/SS1 will have to wait. The cockpit shot got priority consideration since there were no shots of it. I wish I would have had more time to set up for the shot. There were other people waiting and I had to stick my head inside the porthole and get the shot. I would image it will be several more days before Ralph's and my exterior shots to show up.
