To quote Jack the Rabbit: "I wanna give a shout out to all my peeps at DIA"
Some great catches lately. Among my favorites:

Jeff, I think the commuters are under-rated, especially when you capture them like that!

Mr. Kroychik, congrats, you have earned the prestige of my work computer background! Incredible!

Keep up the great job! I'm working on getting a D70 by summer and I hope to be able to get out there again very soon and meet up with some of you all again.

Craig,

Thank you for the awesome post... I hope you're not the only one setting it up as the background. Big grin

Hope to see you all out there,

Alex.

Bruce,

I own a Sony DSC-F717, and this shot was done without the teleconverter. I'd say between 38 and 70mm... it was sort of a lucky shot too, since camera didn't focus right away, but when it did it took the picture right away, and no cropping was needed at all.  Big grin

Craig, thanks for the great post. We have been looking for you out at the airport, but you are not there. Hopefully we will see you out there sometime again soon.


Also.. as a proposal to the DEN group. Would you all like to change the names under your photos to i.e Aaron Mandolesi - 5280 Crew. I had put a change in for 5280 Group, but I will email the database editors for 5280 Crew if you guys can agree on that? So how does that sound since we are a group or crew here in DEN?

Let me know guys

Sounds like a plan, Aaron. Hopefully next time we get a visitor, I'll be able to make the meetings. They sound like they have been a lot of fun. I just need to get out there and chat with everyone some more. I've only met most of you once, and some of you I have yet to meet.
I've been busy helping a friend prep for an interview with Lakes, as well as building my flight time so hopefully I can get in there soon as well.
We should look into getting a tour of DIA or Lakes or even DEN TRACON setup as a group. I know the waiting lists are long and they aren't going to get any shorter so we might want to get working on that soon if there is any interest.
Keep in touch everyone.

Aaron - 5280 crew sounds pretty good to me.

Craig - thanks for making the post, as I also noticed more and more neat stuff coming in from everyone. I am also interested in the DIA ramp tour.
