The site looks great, what template did you use? Also, what is the make and model of the plane in the image above? Keep up the great work!

The site is currently using one of the stock Joomla 1.5 themes just beaten up a bit. I am working through how I want the site to function before I work on a more custom theme.

The plane is a Carl Maas Aerostream. May be the only one in the world! The Slopestream is very similar just a different airfoil I believe. Shot it at Soar Utah in 2006.
