I see that DJI now has an offering with a Hasselblad camera. The few photos that I have seen are on Flickr, and seem to be better than average, but the photos that I've seen seem to be more from the...

If you don't appeal much, and you are polite in your request, I would consider that option. I recently submitted my first appeal in months, and went from PAQ to TO24:

A former colleague of mine had spent time working in the field for a utility in rural SC, and the crew would usually go to WH for breakfast. Then one day they noticed a huge pot of pre-cracked eggs...

And yet the suborbital perspectives keep climbing to TO24 slots. I can't see this happening without a campaign that would win the 2020 election. There are just not enough regular viewers who would...

As the veteran of over forty years of main line steam chases, I respectfully disagree. Once it happened, the solar eclipse was a one-location event. This will be a continuous insane...
