I have to add to the chorus of "amazing pictures".

And....I'm noticing as I type this that this is a thread from four years ago....

@tbzep,

Do you still have those photos anywhere they could be re-posted? I've been going down an Aerobee rabbit hole lately and would love to see them!

RACKETS are GOOD as long as you set one up everyone needs and is legal.
Not a scamulation if LEGAL

They hosted a free image hosting/backup site. Without notice, they locked the site down and demanded $400 payment to release the images.
