hey thanks for the compliments...if i could find my 500mm lense right now i would tell you what kind it is..i'm not sure of the brand or anything...hopefully i'll find it soon...once all the xmas stuff is put away...it's an awfully good lens..i love it! even tough it's manual focus
and another little story about that krystal burger...we had just flown in from DFW on an AA MD-80...so we were hungry and there was a wendy's and a krystal..i would have rather gone to wendy's but the krystal was better for shooting pics...so we went there and stood outside taking pics..just Dash 8s and MD-80s and an ERJ...nothing too spectacular..but then the 76 came along..and we had to get it...after that landed we went inside and ate...the food really is terrible there...we were eating our lunch at that little table/bar next to the window so we could see the arrivals...i was eating a chicken sandwich when this family pulled up and got out of their minivan...as soon as they got out of the car they looked up and pointed to the sky with a shocked look on their face...jonathan birdwell and i just kinda looked at each other, and then the British Airways 777 flew RIGHT overhead...i felt sick to my stomach, and my dad noticed this and said "if you're feeling sick, it just might be the food." LoL
he didn't like the food either...so we missed the 777 (G-VIIS IIRC) and so i WOULD have more pics from that spot but we were eager to get home...and disappointed after we missed the BA 777...
anyway enough with my stories
...i'll find that lens and get back to you soon
