Am I the only one who's noticed this? If you look at the picture atop Tom Benenson's column "Airwork", it seems as if his open collar follows the line from the leading edge of his 182's wing, over the upper surface and down the flap, showing the downwash.
You'd think this would fit Peter Garrison's column better... [IMG]/ibb/skins/default/emoticons/smile.gif[/IMG]
I noticed the same thing--looks as if the wing is "flapping" like a bird...
Also--I think it is actually a Cardinal RG, not a 182.
It is a Cardinal....strange paint job, though. They've finally gotten rid of those drawings and are now using photographs....it's nice to be able to see what they all really look like....
I'm glad they moved from the b&w photos to color. They really looked like mug shots in b&w. I still think they could use a more flattering set of photos.
I couldn't agree more. I've met Lane Wallace in person at Oshkosh, and her photo doesn't really do justice to her. Come to think of it, I've met Tom Benenson, too, and his photo could be better.
Seriously, I think the photographer was going for some sort of minimilist/semi-severe look. Nice attempt, but I think pilots (and others) are actually best served by being photographed in their "natural" settings. For example, I've always liked the still photo that Sporty's uses for Dick Collins in their ads.
Tom wrote somewhere that his mother likes his picture.....no accounting for taste.
Take extra care to avoid activities that might detract from flying.
