My fascination with the basics of aviation is similar to my fascination with physics of pinhole photography. So, the top of the wing is curved more than the bottom. In order for the air to get over it, it has to go faster because it's now farther than it is at the bottom. According to Bernoulli, that reduces the pressure at the top which allows this great huge machine to get sucked up into the sky. Really!
I took three cameras with me. Long John Pinhole, recently resurrected with new Gilder Electron Microsope apertures, taking the narrow angle, The Variable Cuboid with the moderate wide-angle 60mm front and it's interchangeable front option and continuously adjustable rising front so I'd sound a little sophisticated with the home builders, and the Hazy Rabbit at ultrawide 30mm, because I think it's funny,
After parking by the Museum, not realizing there were busses to the convention grounds, I walked about a mile with a generally cheerful group who also made the same mistake.
I went directly to the big stuff in Boeing Plaza, the central showplace on the grounds, My first confrontation was with the landing gear of a C-17 GlobeMaster.
There was also the Boeing 777-200ER ecoDemonstrator, and Delta's Team USA Airbus A330neo, famous for flying Olympic athletes to Beijing last year. There were tours of all these planes going on but the lines were long and exposures inside would be impossible. A guy from Boeing on a PA system joked that his Triple Seven didn't need winglets like the Airbus.
