They are Czech made Aero Vodochody L-29 Defin jets, at 400+ mph, one of the more popular racing jets used at the national championship air races in Reno, Nevada

Aha! That's why I couldn't identify it as an ex-fighter.

Thanks for that.

(Aussie flag on the jet, too. )

Since today is the one year anniversary from my presence at the Axalp 2015 event (even though only the test event took place) I posted 8 new pictures on my Flickr page. Here are some samples. All were taken with my K-5IIs + DFA 150-450 combo.

You must have had a great vantage point!

(Oh, and your camera takes great photos, too. )

I was on the second spotters point at the top of a mountain like hundreds of other spotters-photographers. I was too tired to go to the third spot that is considered to be the best as it closest to the action...

Thank you Ron! The K-5IIs is a wonderful camera! I just wish I had a camera with 24Mpxl or a longer lens, but there is always something better (there were many better and pro photographers around me with FF Canonikons and 600/f4 primes). Anyway I always aim at doing the best I can with my equipment under the given conditions and that is what I did back then too I'm not envy of others at the end of the day I'm either satisfied or unsatisfied with myself.

I think this is the Bell 47 G-2 from 1956 with wood rotor blades which was displayed at the Northwood University International Auto Show in Midland, Michigan.
The image was cropped. It was captured with a Pentax 100-300mm zoom lens on a K-S2.
