A Few Photos ...

I continue to be impressed with the iPhone4's built-in camera. I mean, it's not a Leica M9, but it's a heck of a lot cheaper and pretty simple to use. Plus, I always seem to have it with me. Some of these photos capture a bit of the joy of being in flight, others have sentimental value, and others are simply ... utilitarian.

Enjoy ...

Mr. Ewing, I think I feel similar things to my good-old Sony Ericsson K790i. It's always in my pocket; ready to shoot whenever needed.

Iphone4? I must be a pilot first :)

I believe there is a form that one can fill out to report GPS "outages".

Not sure if it's worthy of your time to do so.

Blake is correct and here's the link to report GPS outages:

I did report the problem, though I don't know if it was a problem with our equipment or something else. It only took a few minutes to fill out the form.
