Thanks Steve! Looks like a good summer for airshows coming up in my region, so I think I can justify investing in a lens with a bit more reach before the next show. Any excuse to indulge in a fit of LBA. . .

An aircraft that I don't ever want to have to fly in: the Devon Air Ambulance finishing up a non-emergency job at Pew Tor. Huge thanks to these guys for the job they do. And a reminder to donate again next time I'm in town. (xposted)

Couple of Jones Beach Airshow Pics

1st is a USAF HH-60 CSAR helo at low altitude in front of a fog bank, about to drop a swimmer, during the 2009 airshow and the 2nd is one of the Blue Angels beginning a high-g turn during the 2010 airshow. Both taken with my K10D and a FA 100-300mm lens at 300mm.

Boeing 787-10 (B78X) doing flight testing at KBIL. K-3 and Sigma 150-500. A good example of how heat and haze can create distortion to ruin an image.

Here are a couple from an open house Tattoo at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. Don't know the plane types. Taken with my old DS and the DA 50-200mm.

The first aircraft is a Lockheed C-5 Galaxy and the second one a Douglas C-47 Skytrain (or Dakota as more widely known in RAF service and outside USA).

I like the Dakota silhouette picture.

Thanks for the info. I'll add it to my files. I like the Dakota image also. I have it hanging in my family room.

Great pic of a rare big bird!

I was about to post another C-130H Hercules picture, but this is a cargo plane not of the "mean" ones!

Taken with K-5IIs + Bigma 50-500 @ 500mm, F9, 1/400 (ISO 320 or 400 If I recall corectly).



PS: There is a connection between the USAF AC-130s and Greece that is quite interesting and I had read a long ago. I couldn't find the original article from USA, but here is an English translation from the Greek website for those interested in backstage stories!

It seems that the link didn't work so above is the original one. On top right you can translate it in various languages...
