Pictured: The analog flight computer I used when I learned to fly, my 1990 vintage flight jacket, and a WW II vintage leather combat helmet -- a gift from our foreign exchange student. By turning the wheel on the flight computer and aligning specific information on wheel with specific readings on the bezel, I can compute all relevant flight parameters. It still works today and never runs out of batteries.

nice shot. there is a hotspot in the front which is very distracting, either flash or the light above. <8>

The only thing that bugs me about this picture is the sunlight or light that is being reflected on the bottom of the flight computer. 5

Interesting subject, and very well done. Small improvements in DOF and lighting (cutting the overexposure on the highlights) might be possible. But, I definately like this. -9

Very unique. Maybe just a little more contrast between the flight bag and the contents. I haven't seen one of these since before my dad left the Air Force in 75. 10

Ok. I must admit I've never seen one (flight computer) but apart from the informative character of this shot... it does not bring anything....

The photo seems a little cluttered.

Nice idea, the lighting is a alittle harsh because of the reflection at the bottom.

Good shot, other than the hot spots. Sure glad my old E6B is in the attic somewhere, cause I could never remember how to use it in the age of the FMS.

an interesting photo, but done in an uninteresting way. the highlight along the bottom edge is distracting.

the flight cap is a nice touch, and I like the gentle sepia style lighting. 8
