Aerial photos, balloons, planes, and others
« on: February 15, 2013, 05:10:42 PM »
Had not seen a topic with a subject such as this so I thought I would start one with a couple of images I snapped today.  These are two pics of a USAF A-10 "Warthog" as it was doing practice bombing and strafing runs on ground targets.  I only had a few minutes to snap shots (it was very cold and windy and I wasn't at all dressed for it) and I'm looking forward to going back at some point in the future to shoot some more.

Nice. Where'd you shoot those from? As far as I can remember, nobody is allow to get close to the practice ranges while they're actually using them.

Here is a link to the range I was at.  This is an old posting; however they are planning an open house this year in September. http://www.131bw.ang.af.mil/news/story.asp?id=123270422

I was there today as a Civilian DoD employee that was performing some work at the range.  I had a few minutes available before I left to snap a few pics.  You can't leave until the planes finish their runs as the road going out is right in line of the strafing pit!

Ah, ok, cool. I was never stationed at an operation air base so I never had that opportunity. That was also before I got into photography as well.

These are superb, but I'm confused...are these shots you've just found elsewhere, done by other people, or is this thread mostly about what we've done ourselves?  I have some work, although not many plane closeups like from an airshow.  Alas, there have been several airshows in my area over the years, but I did them all with consumer video, and there haven't been any since I got into digital stills photography.

I will begin posting some of my own shots.  Most of my closeup work, is R/C model planes.  Most of my aerial work, are terrestrial targets, commercial or otherwise.

I can't speak for anyone else but my photos are taken by me... I never post others work.

The ones that I posted are taken by Me.  Using a Canon 50D and some early ones with a 18 - 200 lens.  Some of the later with the 70 -200 2.8 IS.  YOu can click through any of mine to see some more on my Flickr account.
