Right place, right time.
Lens: About 220mm Camera: K100d ISO: 400 Shutter Speed: 1/500s Aperture: F8 

Sunday I received an email - Monday 3.00pm, Conningsby, Red Arrows.
Made it just in time to see the first full display of the season. Not a public display, just for RAF people I understand. Weather conditions were calm but perhaps a little hazy.
I used the Tamron 70-200 set at f8.0 and shutter at 1/500sec set manually. Also used manual focus as I reckoned the smallish aperture would cover any minor focus errors.

Great photo's, but they're all abit too dark. But in a situation like this, you'd've probably been better off if you had used either Av or Tv. For example, set the shutter at 1/400 and let the camera decide which aperture is best for the lighting conditions. Something at which the camera is much quicker than any photographer.

Great shots, nicely composed considering their speed.
