Pics were taken with my cellphone camera (!)

I made the stand in the sheet metal shop at my school's hanger. :)

Very nice, thanks for posting.
Could you explain how it works? Specially the little countdown register at 6?
And I take it that the white dot in the top register turns black after 12 hours?

Hi Ron,

Red knob:

Push to start/pause/reset the Hr/Min counter at 12. The white dot means the counter is reset. It turns red when it's running and is 1/2 red and white when it's paused.

Turning to the left winds the clock (5 day reserve)

Right knob:
Push to start/pause/reset the stop seconds and minute counter at 6.

It runs well, great accuracy.

It's a Sonyericsson K800i. I'm pretty amazed at the quality. The phone itself and battery life is excellent, too.

Here are a few more aviation-related pics taken by the phone at my school's hanger

Great photos! I spent two days being wined and dined aboard a Falcon and flown all around the southeast US. Very nice craft. Performance was impressive. That was a once in a lifetime chance for me, I'm afraid.
